Individual Plus One

It’s a slow burn

That’s about to go up in flames

I’d walk through fire for that creative misery


Habitual in our insecurity and confidence

Can’t sleep without remembering

But I’ll sleep alone

Until I can sleep next to you


You dream at high speeds

I can keep up from right here for hours on end


Your energy is like breaking glass

And dancing on the shards with a smile

Surprisingly, I relate

Because I’m a summer ballerina

With a penchant for dancing in the dark


All of our friends are either wasted

Or passed out from exhaustion

We’re still awake, even though we’re tired too

Tonight is a brand new day

Online anger has no place

In our personal space


You’re all about me and I’m all about you


My head is in the clouds the majority of the time

It keeps me down to earth

When everyone else hates gravity

I remind me of you

You’re my best friend who I’ve never met

Maybe, hopefully, we just haven’t met yet


Single goals make for double trouble

We like it like that

Sailing a rainbow bloodstream

If we have to die, we’re going to die happy

Mission decided

Chameleon-type fashion, but make it love


Knight in rusted armor and with a free mind

Princess ditched her crown for freedom



You remember the big picture

I’ll remember the details

You tell me that everything will be okay

Part of me will believe you


The streets look like death and people are fake deep

But here we are, in a room crowded by our feelings


We believe in God if this is what love is

Nobody has to know what we choose not to show

I can still see you with my eyes closed

As you write stories and poetry all over me


They’re all outside for a reason

You’re the one I want to come home to


No place I’d rather be, unless you were there with me

Best friends for life and forever as they say

On our way to the place of our dreams

Anywhere that’s here

Dancing to the music in our heads

Our hearts are real


You always have a hold on me

I know all about you

Shatter until we’re free

Good Luck from My Heart to Yours

I lost the lottery all by myself

I hope you’re proud

You just laughed and called me your world

We do this all the time

And it always gets better


You spin me around like your dizzy head

We build towering cities

After jumping off cliffs

It’s perfect because it isn’t

Apology accepted

Let’s do it again


I like how your eyes sparkle

Even when there’s no light

I like the way you think

When you think that no one’s watching

Maybe I like how much I love you


Fast forward to the rewind

Have you ever smiled and meant it

This much in your life?

You’re a great driver

For turning right into mine

That’s what I hope you’ll someday want to be

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

I want to know everything

State of Martyrdom

We’ve taken a break from outside communication

To form a deeper understanding of each other

Creating connections for the long run

I’m sleeping awake

While you’re dreaming in front of me

The upside is going down

Insides are spilling out


The numbness wears off

When my feelings hone in on you

The air I’m breathing is fresher than before

Yet, the butterflies refuse to migrate

I never said that you’re my only source of happiness

I never said that anything is guaranteed

No one and nothing are in our way anymore

Life has become more “with” than “without”

I can’t change your mind for you


Crying about difficulties is much easier

When you know for a fact

That you’re not the only one

Drop the act for just a moment

For the uncensored truth

I seem to find you every time you’re jaded

Look, we match!

Same thing happens when we’re better


We’d love to be in love

Circumstance pulls us apart

And slams us back together

Hearts underground like tectonic plates

Surrender to fate

Call Me Felicity

Post-fireworks smoke here

An outpouring of petrichor there

I’m the words that can make you cry

A variety of types of tears


What are you thinking about?

I’m preoccupied with thoughts of my future

And thoughts of you

With you?

Wait, who said that?

You too?


You deeply touched my heart

Made its fabric softer than it already was

I try to back away from these feelings

But you keep coming back

To pin me to the wall

“V” is for vendetta, valentine, … and so on


When in Rome, take me home

You try to distract your heart

And avoid what it wants

But my love is shameless

And I still have you wrapped around my finger

And you love it, admit it


You’re the crown jewel of the ball

I want to be your crowning glory

Let’s turn the fantasies of our favorite love songs

Into our reality

Wouldn’t that be a dream come true?


I’ll introduce you to the real me

The most beautiful disaster you’ve ever seen

Let me care for the real you

As the sunflowers come into bloom


My cheeks hurt

From smiling at the meteor shower

In your eyes

And laughing at something you said or did


Hot Take

Get lost

I’ll never stop searching


You polarize me

I’ll go

But the more I stay, the more you’re worth it


I’m capable of dying inside

More than you dye your hair

When you’re near,

I see the world in its spinning color wheel


I’m not leaving

Your love only leaves me alone

When I need to be

How many more words can I use to describe

How grateful I am for you



I now write to you

By writing about you

I forgot how to breathe, but you reminded me

You enlightened my opening eyes

You are the dream that sets the scene


Your hands are inspirational

These days come and go in waves

You might be the answer

To the questions that I overthink about


I could be that person

I could be that saving grace

What we’re growing into is amazing

We don’t take sides

We give

Dancing With Moonshine

Because I write with so much feeling,

I can only write when I am feeling

Just taking a break hits me with withdrawal

Like I’m somebody that doesn’t even exist

This is my passion

This is my thing

Structured society may have career questions

But quitting is out of the question


I live for oxymorons and irony

There’s never just one right or wrong answer

What’s obvious

And what isn’t shown, but is true


If you catch me shivering,

Then I gave myself chills

My blood ran until it got cold

Or both

Walking in summer’s winter wonderland

Hand in hand with an invisible…

Good morning!


Carnival of the downward spiral

The occasional fairy light

The consequences are unlimited

Falling down voids that seem endless

They said that there will be blood

They said that there will be war

But not if a different voice is listened to

A different path taken


It’s raining bullets and beating hearts

Sedate my toxic imaginary friend

I could be a weapon of mass destruction

Yet, here stands the raw, unfiltered me

A vessel of mass compassion


I freestyle my way

Through the mazes of authority

That disguises itself as strong leadership

Suddenly noticing that I can’t stop smiling

Because I wrote a wonderful life
