Holding on is instinct
Letting go is love

You’re a fool to think I write these words for you.
How is it, you can so easily make yourself
The centre of my universe
Or worse
Make me the centre of yours?

Your gravity is far too deadly
Every pound of guilt you place on my chest
One less breath
One less planet I can run to

You are alien to my atmosphere
Poison to my waters
I’d die of thirst
Before I’d swallow

Memories
Like a loose anchor
Serve only to keep you in the swells
Slowing you down
Lost at sea
With no direction
Life continues to move forward
Oblivious to your struggle
Washing up on unknown shores
As continents drift
The landscape alters
Instinctively you hang on
When you need only
To surrender to the current
Trust the pull of the moon
Allow the tide
To bring you home

Time Machine

Science is not required
No magic
Nor devices
Simply the miracle
Of the memory
That takes me
Back
The elixir of hope
That gives me
Tomorrow
I am
The machine

Made with Instagram

There is no one who could love me
Like words
Thrown carelessly across the page
Unedited, unperfected

There is no bag of bones
Running at the mouth
That could convince me
Their baggage is worth the effort

Beyond the secrets
They whisper to themselves
when they don’t know
I’m listening

Made with Instagram

The countdown to new beginnings
Suspended
Destination frozen
within a new world
waiting to bloom

Timeline bulletproof
Defended
Best laid plans
Melt like snow
In a spring that comes
too soon
