Reluctance; a memoir.

I don't want to write anymore.

I don't want to feel the weight

Of this pen

Sinking me

Like an anchor

To the bottom of every blank

Page before me.

I don't want to write anymore.

I don't want to wake up

Shaking and sweating

Wondering if I could've

Said anything different

To make him stay.

And he hasn't even left.

Yet.

I don't want to write anymore.

I don't want to carry the burden,

Of every artist who's written

Before me.

And every poet

Sure to arise from the ashes.

I don't want to write anymore.

Yet here I sit,

Pen in hand.

Reluctant,

And

Ready.

Lessons I should've learned two years ago

I hate that seeing your face makes my stomach sink,

And that I let you define the way I loved.

I hate the way you left me there to doubt and hate myself,

For all of your shortcomings.

It was never my fault.

It was never that I wasn't enough for you,

It was that I was too much.

Too good.

Too sweet.

And now I'm too strong

To get washed away by your languid lilting lyrics.

It's time for you to go.

You're a song that's stuck in my head, and the notch in my bed frame I'm just trying to forget.

21 Candles

I've been on this planet for 21 years, What a wild ride.

I've loved,

I've lost,

I've learned.

What will wait

On the other side of a decade?

Where will I be

When these walls no longer

Contain me?

If I have learned anything,

About myself at all,

It's that I love deeper,

And stronger,

And that's okay.

Happy birthday to me,

Here's to another 21 years,

Orbiting the sun,

And burning bright.

Green Glass Love

I love the way you say something is "ours" or that "we" really enjoyed a certain restaurant. Or the way you say "should be good for us!" When someone asks to make plans, I love that we're a team and I don't have to think twice about it.

I love the way you trace the contours of my face with your fingertips, and remember that running your thumb over my eyebrow calms me immediately. You have me memorized in ways I never thought anyone could.

I love that you know all the things that broke my heart, and that you know which dress I wear to impress you. I love that you gave that Tiffany blue dress new life, and gave me a reason to dress up again.

You make me feel strong, when I feel paper thin and falter in the wind.

You curb my ego when I'm headstrong, and bring me back down to earth when I'm light years ahead of myself.

I feel like a kid with you, so silly and adventurous and ready to share this giant world like a huge playground in an everlasting game of tag.

I love that you love to see my nerdy side, and that you understand why a Mayan ruin could bring me to tears. And when I do cry, out of one eye, you tease me into smiling.

You make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me question my own thoughts, and challenge me every day. You make me strong, and you make me proud to love so fiercely. You make me better.

You make me human.

Toss and Turn

Every night since you left

I curl up on the right side of the bed,

Your side.

Tucked tightly against the wall,

Burying myself in blankets,

Where I used to bury into your chest.

Hoping to catch a brief hint

Of your cologne.

Every morning,

Without fail,

I wake up on the left side,

My side.

Blankets hanging precariously over

The edge of the mattress.

The fitted sheet, pulled away.

I lose the same war

Each night.

Waking without you,

Sends shockwaves through every inch

Of exposed flesh as I reach for you

In the middle of the night,

My hand falls through

A deep nothingness,

And I realize

I'm alone

Again.

What I wouldn't give,

To reach out,

To find you

At arms reach.

And when I wake up I'll feel differently

I don't want to write "good" poetry anymore.

I don't want to post some half assed rhymes to meet a quota.

I don't want to be a statistic with every Oxford comma I neglect to use.

If I even attempt caring about punctuation.

I want to write about the reasons my heart is full,

And the reasons it breaks from time to time.

To do the beautiful world around me justice as I explore the vastness of it all.

I want to write about the man I love, and how his words make my skin flush and my heart race,

But I'm not prepared to lose it all.

So I mustn't write about it.

After all,

To be a poet is to turn loss into art,

And I've done my time.

Rushing to the finish line, for second place

I only write

At three AM

when the world is fast asleep

I only dance

Under moonless skies

Under a canopy of trees

Who I am

I do not know

But if there ever were a time

To love what I am

And who I will become,

Or to have your hand in mine

It's now.

Intrusive Thoughts

I have to remind myself

It's not about me

Or my body

Or the way I love.

And it never was.

UV index

There was a simple truth in the way you looked at me,

Like I wasn't the only girl on the planet,

But I was the only one that mattered.

I've been falling in love with you,

For 366 days now,

Drawn deep into your orbit,

Floating carelessly,

Burning up

With every inch of skin you kiss.

"Perspective" or "As you will"

Being the kind of woman I am

I fell for you before I could think,

And

Being the kind of man that you are,

This is a ship that's destined to sink.
