Everything, and Nothing At All

The feeling of the rain on my skin.

Red nail polish.

The taste of garlic.

The smell of cinnamon.

Drag queens and ballets.

Things that I’ll miss when I’m gone.

Crab apples.

Peppermint.

Cherry blossoms.

Things that are beautiful.

Whispers in the dark.

The morning dew on spider webs.

The ache in my legs when I’ve run a long ways.

Chocolate milkshakes.

Funny names.

Lyrics to a song I can’t remember.

Your laughter in the car when we’re stopped at a red light.

Daydreams and nightmares.

Private thoughts and public mistakes.

Valentines.

Things that I wish I still had.

Morning breath.

Spaghetti dinners.

The times that I’ll never forget.

White rabbits.

Bookends.

First kisses.

Lullabies.

New born babies.

The strength of an oak tree.

All the things that matter.

And all the things that don’t.

To a Friend, Unfaithful

You were my laughter.

You were my stone.

You were my helper.

You were my sister.

friends ’til the end.

We told our secrets,

To no one else.

We played with faeries,

And goblins and nymphs.

i thought we would always,

Be there for each other.

I thought we would always,

Love one another.

But now your gone,

now i can’t find you.

Now you have gone.

The faeries have gone.

And now you’re gone.

now i’m all alone.

Yesterday

Yesterday,

I thought I heard you speak.

Yesterday,

I thought I saw your face.

Yesterday,

I thought I smelled the smell of your perfume.

The other day,

I saw you leave.

The other day,

We fought.

The other day,

You left me for another.

The other day,

I swore I’d never fall for you again.

Until yesterday.
