A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

Tomorrow’s Coming

On nights like this
It’s hard to remember why you need to breathe
What you stand for
Where your values lie

On nights like this
When you want it all to fade away
Into quite nothingness

On nights like this
The only thing that keeps you going
Is the promise of tomorrow

I know it wasn’t going to be easy
But I never knew
It would be this hard

I wish I could break out
Of this cage I’m trapped in
I wish this could all be over

They never said the game was fair
But tomorrow’s coming

And we take a breath, together

They call it falling in love for a reason

The risk

The uncertainty

The fear


Falling in love makes you lose control

So dependent on someone else

That you forget how to breathe

When they’re not around


Love makes you vulnerable

As you hand your heart to another

Praying that they don’t drop it

Yet it never comes back whole


We try to regain control

To build a parachute

Keep our hearts guarded till we’re sure

But that’s not how it works


I let go of everything

Accepting the cool hit of the pavement

When you catch me in your arms


Yet it isnt


How in love with you I am


How much I miss your touch


How a simple hello can change my day


How much it hurts to be apart


How my walls crumble in your presence


That I fall for you more each day


That you haven’t ran, abandoning me


That I could even cross your mind


That you might be mine forever

My Secret

I’m not sure how to say this

It terrifies me to my core

To be so vulnerable to someone else

Yet I’ve found myself opening to you


Let me not stumble over my words

Which cannot express how I feel

The chaos rages within

Yet this remains constant


Over our six years

This fact has come to light

A simple truth

Finally coming to light


Very soon our time might end

Without this being said

I’m holding back due to things unresolved

I wish to drop this weight


Even though I am unashamed of how I feel

And I’m almost positive that its reciprocated

I can’t tell you this

Not yet anyways


You must be aware of how I feel

My actions surely tell my secret

Couldn’t you make the first move

Take the jump instead


O how I crave to tip the scale

To finally admit to you

Accept whatever change comes my way

I pray you agree


Unless one of us speaks up

This will never come to be

And we will be soon to fade

Just that you let me in


That stupid smile flashes across my face

Your head is in the clouds

While I’m here on the ground


I know I catch your eye down here

Like a beacon in a storm

O how I wish to hold your hand

And help you weather through


My heart aces for what pains yours

I hunger for your words

Yet I must step back

And let you fight your battle


I haven’t told you yet

Although perhaps you know

I'm head over heels for you

I see forever and it terrifies me


I adore you

There is trust and respect

Something there that feels like love

But it’s obscured by fog


You cling to toxins past

Look to others for your own opinion

Eyes batted with other girls

These hurtles stand in our way


I can accept that you value your friends

The relationship you share with them

Of course I’d never ask for it to end

Just that you included me


As for the other girls

I get it you’re a romantic and care too much

Kind, respectful, funny

You’re every girls dream


The ex’s break my heart

Don’t get me wrong I trust you

I trust you

But it breaks my heart


We’re avoiding this conversation

Between just as friends

And something more

What stands in the bridge


I love you

I love you

And I want to be there for you

The Closer We Get

I’m scared

About how quickly I’m falling

In love

With you


You’ve seen my heart

And called it beautiful

Yet we’re holding back

And I’ve lost control


A smile dances on my lips

As you flit through my thoughts

You’re just a breath away

Although it feels like a mile


I hunger for forever

But am dying of starvation

Do you know I’m suffering?

Still You Won't Choose Me

Two girls stand before you

One who loves you

And one who never will

You walk away with her

I let you go

I want you to be happy


You say you don’t love him

Yet you string him along

Why won’t you release him

To someone who cares

Yet you selfishly cling to your unwanted prize


My heart breaks

As you flirt with him

My heart breaks

As you try to crush him underfoot


Even as you go through this pain

For surely you see it happening
