"Bright like neon love."

You’re the boat.

I am the dangerous unforgiving sea.

But, I would like to be the safe harbor, lying as your only sanctuary.

I am the lobsterman that scuffs the deck of your boat.

Though I want to be the Lobsterman’s wife in which he names his boat after

I am the secret love letter in you locker.

Though I wish you wrote me a secret love letter

I am the aching space you ache for…

Yet, I ache for you more.

I am the girl who sleeps alone

I am the girl who pretends you sleep next to me.

I know that you will never know,

That more than anything I want you to be my boat.

I was just wondering...

? ?


and I think that i might just be in love with you

Just in time to catch the morning news
And you were somewhere but nowhere to be found.
Could it be I knock on wood and please I beg you
Bring him back here safe and sound.

And god forbid you catch that morning flight
Cause it goes up in flames after you board.
One time through is all it took for you

And I was the exception to the rule.
So for now they say to go to sleep
And that the morning brings a new born day.

Control all within your
Reach and then roll the dice
And let them speak out loud to you.

Dear: My lovely lovers who are bound to love....

The boys needed friendship, the beat needed meeted.

Unh unh. Her dress was a ship at sail.

Unh. Her knees were the water pail.

This was survival and she was the kit.

You could die of thirst if the girls won't give you sips.

You're all jenny and lindsey and fine

And I'm underwater, shedding my mind.

And I'm pretty sure baby if you'd hold my head 

I could live like I've wished for and undo my dread....

When I go for a drive I like to pull off to the side Of the road, turn out the lights, get out and look up at the sky

when I find you tonight
I'll put you in my boat and away we'll ride

away from the city lights
to the place where the water makes the heavens and the earth collide

and oh my darling
I can feel you breathing
you're by my side
you're mine tonight

When you look at me, I know tomorrow will be better.

We are just friends. Several times now, I have fallen asleep intertwined with you. Cheek to cheek, even lip to lip--just feeling your breath on my skin. We go no further. Today we went for a walk after a summer pour, and I could feel the warm steam rising from the streets. Now tonight, I sleep alone. It's probably healthy because when I'm tangled up with you I can hardly sleep at all. I spend the whole night on fire, quietly smoldering most of the time. Except when you pull me closer and rub your soft scruffle up and down my neck and chest. Or when you grab me by the hip bone and sink your thumbs into my flesh, sending electric chills up and down my body.Or when you pull me into you, sliding your fingers down my spine until they press the small of my back (chills, again). Or when your lips find the back of my neck and you mumble about how good I smell. Those are the times that the smoldering gives way to a blazing flare and all I can do is hope for a nap the next day.

But not tonight. You're there and I'm here. I could never tell you this, but every night your body isn't pressed against mine, I have to pack pillows around myself just to fall asleep. But we are just friends, and I'm sure you sleep fine without me." - Le Love 

Lost and Lovely

You’ve got cucumbers on your eyes

Too much time spent on nothing

waiting for a moment to arise

The face in the ceiling and arms too long

I wait for him to catch me ....
