You Had Me Once You had me once— wild and willing;
you wanted a lover who took you to the edge. Wasn’t it I— who gave you that feeling?
A love that danced upon a ledge.
Then came another who offered you safety— and you chose to be with her instead.
There was a time when I thought I wanted more. When I saw the sky as a soaring highway and the world as one big carousel. But those yearnings have grown so distant, ebbed so far away from me, they feel as though they belong to someone else.
All I want now is a rainy day, a roaring fire, you and I talking about how quickly the time has gone.
Witness It is the mark of a great poet to write words that feel as though they have stood witness to your most intimate memory of love.
Reclaiming the Sky
Ask the sun to relinquish the sky to the moon.
Tell the moon to rise with a fierce unyielding vengeance.
Remind her it is now her time to glow.
Moving On Leave him, let him go. Don’t be the crazy ex-girlfriend or the shoulder to cry on. You’re more than just an ego boost, a story he can tell someone he’s trying to impress.
Just walk away with your head held high and don’t give him another second of your time. I know you love him so much that every step is killing you.
But this is the moment you’ll always look back on as the day you put yourself first. Go and make something beautiful of your life and I promise you, one day you’ll forget he was ever there.
Shelter My father was a house, my mother was a home.
We Never Broke Up
We never broke up. I am on my second cup of coffee and you’re just waking up. The sun is streaming through the curtains and I go to kiss your back. We never broke up. You find me on the bathroom floor again after a bad day. You pick me upand we talk it through. You tell me nothing is ever as bad as it seems. Not when we have each other.
We never broke up. It is two in the morning and we’re laughing so much, it hurts. We keep telling each other to go to sleep, but neither one of us does. I was so happy— I could have died that night.
Sometimes I wish I had. We never broke up. Only, we did. As I lie awake wishing, willing you here. Dreaming of the day you’re in my arms again, asking me why did we ever break up.
Into Existence If you wrote a line about me, it could never be false. Even if it is. Don’t you see? You are writing me into existence, so please be careful with your words.
They put me in a gown and sat me in a chair and a man in a white coat showed me picture card after card and said tell me the first thing that comes to your mind.
First, he showed me a china plate and I said hunger. Then he showed me a dead bird and I said, fallen. Then he showed a picture of you. I closed my eyes and said, broken.
Darts on a Board I don’t know if it was me or her or the one who came before that. What did it matter? We were all just darts on a board, wishing we had hit the bulls-eye.
