Trauma

Our traumas are both our oceans and our space. Vast and unknowing. There’s a certain fear that comes with that reality. How do you heal from something vast and unknowing? The last time we spoke I…. The last time I saw you we… So many things are gone now. I look around and so many…

Coachella Poem 2019

PSA: no matter what I am about to say don’t come to Weekend 2 of Coachella. I would never lie to you. So whatever truths I put into words below, don’t mind them at all. This is an absolutely dreadful place. Never come here. I promise you the grass is literally not greener on the…

Matter…

Truth of the matter is it’s been awhile since we talked like this. I told you I love you and I meant it with all of my damaged heart. I just wish I didn’t say it so soon. But I would never time travel to change how I feel about you. We finish each other’s…

Seeds of Growth

It’s the season of growth. All those seeds I planted in the Winter are coming back as trophies. I’m evil but I’m not scared. I’m not scared to say I wish you were here to hold me. I’m growing, I wish you were here when I’m new to know me. You’re still preoccupied with thoughts…

Ruined

I want to be ruined. I want to be destroyed. And I think you want the same thing. Something so beautiful and tragic that it shouldn’t exist. Yet here we are. Loving to hate each other. Yet here we are. Learning to exist with one another. Why do we chase the ones who think we…

Beautiful Chaos

Heart to hearts in the bathroom and we ain’t even talking about us. I’m holding the door shut I hear the music faintly in the background. I love this song… I notice all of you, but that’s not what’s important right now. Haven’t wrote about you in awhile. I think I miss it. Sum of…

Ballerina

She use to say yes to me… Sometimes we take moments for granted. We don’t properly reflect until those moments become memories. I wanted it to mean more to you… All these ideas that came to me. Who am I to try and control everything? Of course I want to know who you really are….
