I will wait for the girl
with an earthquake spirit
that sends the fault lines
"Proper Cracks for a Heart Attack"
I moved through the crowd, a judge with a wine glass gavel, spilling verdicts on my shoes, speculating on the unaccused through heavy lidded eyes. Fake. Phony. He doesn’t love her. She’s trying too hard. Overdressed. Wear less make up. Ten years of unhappiness, no chance of bail. The ‘shove-it-down-your-throat’ Christian. Still in the closet. Daddy issues. The easy girl.
I had them all pegged.
A hand grabbed my shoulder, and I turned around. The pill popper. Obviously high.
'Hey, aren't you the rich boy who's daddy gives him whatever he wants?”
"Can you buy me some cigarettes?"
After two minutes of silence she walked away, while my stomach unravelled into steel wire thread, dropping to my toes.
Guilty." - Lest ye be Judged || Derek Deyling
since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world
my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate

And death i think is no parenthesis" - since feeling is first by ee cummings (via beautyisanillusion)

I appreciate the concern. This is actually surprisingly well said.

Seattle, Paris or in a shoe with that old lady. She sounds chill.
Some nights there is sadness, and it doesn’t make much sense.
But it is there. And that’s about as much sense as there will ever be.
It took two million granite blocks
to construct the pyramids
and Rome wasn’t built in a day.
I learned patience from
with roots much deeper than
this shallow heart.
train cars taught me momentum,
that any movement
as long as I am
I took a beating from beauty
batted eyelashes broke me,
and time didn’t stop.
Actually I’m trying to be him, in reverse.
Its hard to understand, I know. Just don’t think too hard and it makes sense.
