Lucky you

They’re not

Really louder,

There’s not really

More of them,

There’s just

Fewer distractions

To keep you from

Listening

To the voices

And anxieties

Screaming

In your head.

The volume

Is

Roughly

The same,

But the usual background noise has subsided just enough to let the chorus of fear and self-doubt make it’s way closer to your consciousness.

Lucky you.

Erosion

I’m going

To bury

Them

In a field

In my mind-

Some fertile

Corner

With plenty

Of light,

Good drainage,

And nutrient-rich soil.

Let the ideas

And feelings,

Memories,

Grow

And take

Root,

Holding the soil

Of my mind

In place,

Secure

From erosion.

More

I need

More

Of you-

On my lips,

On my tongue,

In my nostrils,

In my arms,

Pressed against me,

Shivering in my arms,

Smiling at me,

Biting your bottom lip,

Turning away from me so that I won’t see the thoughts in your eyes and the flush of color in your cheeks.

I need

More

Of you

And I

Together.

I don’t want

Everything,

Just

You.

Another night

It’s when

Things get quiet

That I think

Of her

Most-

When the sounds

Of life

Can no longer

Drown out

The noises

Caused by the memories

And desires.

When the stillness

Returns,

The restlessness

Awakens,

And the quiet

Is shattered

By the screams

Of “I LOVE YOU”

Deep inside

My head.

She doesn’t

Hear

The screams

Or see

My contortions

To hold it all

Together

For just another

Night.

Snapshot of her in my mind

She squints

Slightly,

The sun

In her

Eyes,

With her hair

Glowing

Like a halo

Around her head,

Wind blowing

Tendrils

Across her face

That she pulls away

From

Those unbelievable lips.

For now

Look at me

Again,

With those eyes-

Sparkling and bright,

Dark and passionate,

So telling without words.

 

Kiss me

Again,

With those lips-

Curled with a grin,

Pinched

Between teeth,

Softer than a breath,

More electrifying than lightning.

 

Let me

Touch you

Again,

And see those eyes

Ask,

Feel those lips

Quiver,

Taste the saltiness

Of your tongue,

And have my arms

Around you.

 

Just let me

Be next

To you-

That will work

For now.

“Maybe I’ll always be this way”

Wanting more,

Wandering,

Dreaming,

Living

For those moments

That shutout the noises

And distractions,

Delivering the happiness

Of living

Now.
