how can you say you are a bad thing
when your favorite type of flower looks like a sundrop
you love things carefully
and when you wake up
there is always that little piece of hair
that sticks away from all the others?
there is not a freckle of you
that I could ever call
I love you
For your little, startled, thoughtless ways,
For your ponderings, like soft dark birds,
And when you speak ‘tis a sudden sunlight.
I love you
for your wide child eyes, and fluttering hands,
For the little divinities your wrists,
And the beautiful mysteries your fingers.
I love you.
Does the blossom study her day of life?
Is the butterfly vexed with an hour of soul?
I had rather a rose that lived forever.
We as a society really need to stop romanticizing the idea of “needing” romantic partners and “not being able to live without them” because it is incredibly unhealthy and leads people to wind up in unhealthy situations of dependency or feeling dependent and not thinking to change that mindset because it seems romantic

your hands remind me
of shipwrecks, their sails
forever at half-mast, wooden
planks wailing as we kiss.
i am the storm,
and i promise, i will make
a seabed of you.
darling heart, i loved you from the start
but you’ll never know what a fool i’ve been
