i can't yet say it
but i can damn well sing it
two thousand different ways
say you what you mean to me
in the breaths between what words i harmonize

i'm sorry i can't say it
because it's not true for all of me yet
and i seldom ever lie
give me some time
to catch up with the part of me that sings
because she knows
she knows you

she knows you better than any song
she knows the curve of your lashes by heart
and that's all fine and well
until you've cried for the first time in years
and she won't let you look away
she won't let you hide that one thing from her
because she thinks one thing means everything
and you can't disagree

the me that sings has held you before
before our hands ever touched
kissed you before we shared cigarettes
assuaged your fears before i owned a weapon
i still don't, technically
i have no use for blades, guns when i know
eyes cut and fingers split skin

and you will know it soon too
you'll beg me to define reality
tears lie in wait for the moment
nothing makes sense except for
the tongue in your mouth and 
the songs that move through me

i think i sing to you
i think i sing to you a lullaby
a ballad, a war-song
"to me, to me" i call
calling to your heart
because you wouldn't go into that dark night willingly
without someone holding your hand

i can't yet say it
but i can damn well sing it
two thousand different ways
you're going to die and be reborn
in my arms, in my eyes
it's only a matter of time
before the me that sings

stops to say i love you
Halsey Knows You Well
glory be, it's been a verrrrry long time since i've written anything and i fucking got triggered to do so catching sight of a used cigarette on the ground. met a boy, we're moving fast, not too fast though because we're making a playlist together which is going to be awesome because he and i have totally different music tastes. 

that and i finally started listening to Halsey (been holding out on that) only to find Colors describes him perfectly, minus to past-tense. so yeah.
are you happy with yourself?
if not, then follow me

i will hand you a potion
will not tell you what will happen
because somewhere in that blackened heart,
you know - you know you will
swell up six times your human size
grow two more sets of arms to seize more love with
hooves to leave the ones who really know you in the dust
double-edged horns to hurt yourself more than you hurt others
claws to dig into the earth, proof you will never change
oh darling i will change you

it is the truest pain i know - the pain of learning you 
have taken everything for granted and i
will tear asunder the persona you so quietly molded
break open your hubric rib-cage
find your false heart fluttering in fear 
it has no choice, it is time to die

i will burn your remains
watch your old skin peel away 
barricade of lipid thoughts melt into nothing
bones char as they see the sky for the first time
i will pull the real you from these ashes
small, crying, hurt
because you cannot make a home out of the past

are you happy with yourself?
you aren't, don't lie
i can see right through you
(that is why you will follow me)
A New Dawn
the past few days have seen me do my catalyst thing, tell others about it, write a fucking paper on it and resolve that i should ask when i meet new people "are you happy with yourself? if you are, then don't spend time around me" because i will change you just as i have changed the world around me

i am incapable of having a non-deep conversation. i read too far into things. yet i feel like a priest and if the shoe fits, then i will walk this earth in it.
i am
a love song that's missing its verses
chorus too benign to remember,
you'll never hear me over the orchestra
of the music that you make with him.

i am
i can only give you half a stained glass window
even i don't know what i really feel
i don't know what pieces to use
do i use green for your eyes? do i use pink for the
lighting in which i've always seen you? or do i
use burgundy, for the poisonous envy that has drowned me,
speech thinned by wine and secondary school stress?

yet in your eyes
i am more than adequate
i am made terribly complete by him
and all you can hope for is a sliver of my time

in all actuality, i do feel threatened
but not in the way that you think;
i am not threatened by your connection 
but rather
how he can open his mouth and mean what he says
when i have no words to give you just yet

Thanks so much for the faves on "poisoned fruit" and "in oceans deep!" 
P.S.--I'm glad to see you have some new poems. I'll have to check those out. ;)

You're very welcome, and thank you! I'm glad I finally got through the stack of yours I had hanging around for so long. I'm on break and trying to find things to do while I have the motivation. So far, I have done four loads of laundry, one load of dishes in the dishwasher and one by hand, and cleaned the litterbox. That's just today, and they're not even my cats! (I'm staying with friends till the dorms open up.) How is you?

Haha, yes, see, the reason I haven't posted anything in forever is because I was giving you a chance to catch up...yes... :D

What is this motivation you speak of? And do you have any to spare? 'Cause I probably need some of that. 
Sadly, I only do laundry when I run out of clothes to wear, and I'm the only dishwasher around here. The litterbox does get cleaned promptly, though, as my cat enjoys yelling at me otherwise. Also if she's hungry. Or she wants attention. Or the door won't open when I'm in the bathroom. Jeez, cat, give me a break. :shakes head sadly: 

But good for you! All gettin' things done and stuff. 
I've been all right. And you? How were your holidays?
