Despite All The Things

In lieu of finding out who you were I tossed you to the side I figured I could come back to you Like a math problem I didn’t understand I watched you age from the sidelines You journaled how the isolation made you feel But I never took the time to read your words Instead, … Continue reading Despite All The Things

Crushing Time

It may be harder than I thought To talk to you and not talk to you Then those times I have to catch myself Because I'm staring when I shouldn't be But the energy alone is the reason I can't I can't stop vibing, connecting When you're something I want It's just what my soul … Continue reading Crushing Time
