OUTLINES OF CIRCLES

I want to trace the outlines
of every blood cell in your body.
It might be only monotonously tracing circles
but maybe then I’d be closer to knowing
the paths of your bloodstream.
We’re only streams of movement anyway;
nothing we’ve eve done is deliberate
but I’ll continue to try to tear through
your consciousness, like tearing a hole
through the four cream walls of your home
where you first traced me

THE MOMENT I KNEW

The first time you smiled at me,
I died in a heaven of cosmo dreams.
I saw hues of gold that don’t exist
and beauty in my darkest days.

I WANTED TO IMPRESS YOU WITH MY LOVE FOR PLANTS

If I were a tree,
you’d be my roots
keeping me safe
and grounded.
If you were a tree,
I’d be your branches
keeping you balanced
and kind.

IVY

what i would give
to live like the ivy
that covers the house
I dream of everyday.
We’d be intertwined
all the time and never
lose sight of what
we mean to this life.

But you,
you feel like home
and I would cover
you and keep you warm.

feeling sorry for myself

I crossed six bridges today
hoping you would be at
the end of each one.
