If I had You

If I had you

I could consult you for a dream

You could teach me lessons

Make my whole self me

We could discuss my shaky future

And make all my goals come true

We could work together

If only I had you

Inscape of My Poetry

Will the inscape of my poetry

Foreshadow my doom

Will it lay the groundwork for me

Intentions in a cradled moon

Or is it visions of my trauma

My past that lit fire after night

The things that built me lonely

Past and Future surely blight

Predator Eyes

What drew you to me?

Was it my innocence?

Did it radiate to you?

Could you tell I was a victim,

Because I didn’t have a clue?

Couldn’t avoid you

or notice your predator eyes.

Couldn’t deny you

or sift through what I didn’t know were lies.

I let you have me

and take me

to the worst parts of you.

I let you use me

and break me

because I didn’t have a clue.

Ebb Away my Happiness

Can you ebb away my happiness?

I don’t want to hope

Memories break down on me

Broken glass, a shattered trope

Can you bring me realization?

A world too physical to breathe

I need to not drift elsewhere

I need truth too sharp to sheath

Hesitate

Hesitate before you reach me. Let the wonder linger in that moment. The hunger for me build on the tip of your tongue and the possibilities of us exhilarate your mind. Create us to last forever in each of your falling steps.
