I LOVE YOU. I’d ask you to marry me if I were the committal type.
"where’s the straight pride parade?!"
there you go
you found it
I keep my head down and my mouth shut
'cause if you're goin' through helll, ya just keep goin'
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
how they really feel.
how much they miss you.
how they stay up all night dreading the light of dawn.
how the feel of your lips sends a chill down their spine.
the memory that flashes when they smell your scent when you’re no where in sight.
that they smile at random times to jokes you told over a year ago.
that the way your eyes crinkle when you laugh is the cutest damn thing.
that they woke to a nightmare and held their pillow tightly wishing it was you.
how much it hurts to remember the past.
that they can still feel the hugs of past friends and loved ones.
that emotional pain can physically hurt.
that they found an old picture or artifact that you gave them and spent a few hours trying to resurrect your existence in their memory.
that it’s much easier to forgive than to forget.
that they never really forgot.
that sometimes they’re a poet and they’ve written a few words about you.
