I had one of those dreams again, the ones where we were just friends. You had no idea you were my every heartbeat.
We were on a trip somewhere, back in high school or something. You had a crush on the foreign exchange student I was rooming with. I was barely tolerating her. You invited us to hang out though, and I couldn't deny any second spent near you. We stayed late in your room listening...

Raised on parking lot promises
And "trust me I'm honest"'s
And smoke on our tongues while we kissed
On "I would never lie to you"'s
And "I swear I'd die for you"'s
Coming out of sixteen year old lips
Raised on hand-holding dashboard songs
If it feels right it can't be wrong
Go all the way or don't go at all
Fingers touch thighs and hips
Cat eyes and red lipstick
Grown from the time th...

Walking down this endless road,
Never knowing which way to go.
Each path seems dark,
harder than the last,
constantly hiding from the past.
I try to find the strength to move on,
But each time I do, you still want to have
your fun. When will it sink in?
You will never win.
I’m done playing,
You might think you’re staying.
Truth is you’re as temp...

Please come back

On the surface lies a smile,
A sparkle in one’s eye.
The feeling that in their company
Time just rushes by.
A little deeper and you’ll find
Butterflies a swarming
But thoughts of them are warming
Deeper still into one’s bones
A yearning and an ache,
A drug-like dependency
One simply can’t forsake.

Their voices harshly clash
and will not lie calmly
or rest in our ears
They rise loud over all else
and do not fall to our key
but strike out at us
Our song is raised joyously
and the harmonies sing
of the love we know
We have our air so their words
smash and fall to the ground
they do not stay in sight

it might just be you
i don’t know when
i started thinking of this
can’t put a pin in where it all started
over a year ago, i’d say
maybe you were a charmer and
maybe i was easily charmed
you’ve always had a spot
a spot if you ever wanted it
can honestly say i would
to just try us
to just try what we could be

You asked if this was okay
But I didn't have the heart to tell you the truth
didn't possess the words to say
this is so much more
It just didn't seem to roll off my tongue the way mine rolled over yours
There wasn't enough time to explain the feeling of innocent euphoria I experienced with you
No way to begin to illustrate how you made me unravel at the seams like lillie...

We are not a metaphor.
Although, we have met before
I was a shy girl with bright blue eyes and you were a brown haired boy who played guitar on the bus
We grew up and grew together, inseparable
Unaware of what to call what we were, what we had
This was back when childhood was innocent and we still weren't sure how to kiss
Lips, mouths, necks, hands
We figured t...

Trevor, I saw you again—
I saw you sitting at the desk right beside me in Mr. Tracey’s seventh-grade homeroom,
Filled with twenty unhygienic twelve-year-old students. It smelled of strong coffee in a thermal.
A clock rests above the door. It ticks away the moments.
You were wearing that ratty brown zipper-up you liked so much.
The one that smelled as if it hadn’t seen the insid...

Sometimes i wonder why we met now
why so young, with such a long road
stretched out before us
How sad it makes me to know we wont last
I know he is my first love - I know it with every pulse
I know these short months
will set me flying
will open my eyes
I know i will never taste the world
without that flavour of love again
The smile - not even ...

There is something about you
Your eyes i think
Something I see when I look at them
Or rather, into them
Like someone who who wants to say something
Someone who is drowning
But will not call for help
Someone who desires something
But long ago decided it was impossible
Something in your eyes makes me want to love you
And something makes me feel...

Without her I am nothing
Comparable to Christmas with a light dusting
I feel incomplete
I just need to hear her speak
To feel the brush of her skin,
To feel The warmth of her breath as our lips come to a close
I love her to an extent she'll never know
Young lovers caught in turmoil
Only finding hope in each other
I pray to our God that we're together

He climbed up a timid tree,
With his heart shaped guitar.
Tonight he's gonna make his move
He reached the top and he saw her there,
Sleeping in her bed
Alone with her magnificent beauty;
Her long brown hair hiding her blue eyes.
He moved toward the window,
Pulled out his guitar
And started to play a mellifluous song.
Every chord he strummed was like a sound of a heartbeat
Her eyes opene...

You just might be another waste of time
Another phase that is just passing by
But there is no one else in this town
That I would rather waste my time with than you.
Look at us, we're such a mess
Just two kids stupid and fearless
Like fire and gasoline
We're ready to explode.
If I'm going nowhere
I'm going somewhere with you
And when we leave this town
We’re gonna leave it upsid...

The photo is the poem, and it is called we can escape. It is about love and adventure.

Valens, you are esteemed worthy,
at the Via Flaminia you lay:
Valentinus offered up in faith.
Your deeds aren't known in our day.
In this life you wed young couples;
an act the Emperor would not permit.
And though your grace the monarch received,
your execution he did transmit.
Alas, with clubs and stones they came,
challenged by your fortitude great;
