Tangled in bedsheets smelling of cologne and laughter,
I realized how dangerous you seemed;
You toppled the wall I’d built inside of me
And used the stones to build us a home;
You’ve given me the ability to believe again
Holding the ability to hang me on your every word,
(Your lips are my hangman’s noose)
And I don’t want to tear myself away;
After years of broken promises and empty vows
On a watercolor fall day in my sixteenth year,
Tracing a heart on the pure skin of your chest,
I whispered through tears that I loved you
And that it was okay if you didn’t feel the same
That it’s “hard to love someone like me”
But your beautiful soul kissed my tears
And told me that “I love every part of you.”
Tracing the keys on my keyboard as I type this,
I’m telling you I love you
In the best way I’ve learned how –
When I caress your cheek and mock your stubble,
When I try and push you in the snow,
When I relentlessly send you video after video
Of all the animals I love at work –
I do all I can in each action to encompass how I feel
When I buy you ridiculous gifts,
When I change your phone language to Japanese,
When I reach out to touch your face
At even the most random of times –
When you’re driving, talking, laughing –
It’s to feel closer to you
To span the distance the air between us holds
And in these moments, I think to myself:
You’re really not all that dangerous after all.

I write and post nightly, sometimes bi-nightly. I write in mostly prose poetry, but I do write some speeches. If need be, I will do requests.

I've played guitar since I was 5, and absolutely adore it. I love writing; it's a passion, but I want to be a U.S. Marine.

I'm more introverted as of late, so I apologize if I'm awkward.
In lieu of a recent office visit and small "intervention", if you will, I have no idea which direction of tone my writing will take, only that it will continue.
