u don’t find love? u build it


how much does it matter anyway?
all these people and their stupid games.
why do we all have to care so very much?
I mean, is it even possible to ever really find love…

don’t you have to build it?
don’t you have to grow it?
don’t you have to pay for it?
and even then you never own it…

you don’t just find a diamond on the beach,
why do people force such a silly belief?
why can’t we find some solid enough stone
and carve it out till it matches our own…

isn’t all of it a gamble anyway,
who really knows all the rules of the game?…
all they say is ‘you’ll just know when it’s right…”
but what about choice, risk, and sacrifice?

how much do feelings matter anyway?
what’s so wrong with settling for a safe play?

truths mean more than dares


i didn’t see the point in tying you down
i couldn’t bring myself to throw my heart out,
and when you asked if i agreed and i was sure,
i wasn’t going to argue you into loving me more…

and i may never have told you i loved you or cared,
but i sat there every night and was always there…
some people speak with words that never end,
some people can kiss you into loving them,

and some people write letters, others poems,
and some people like me will never say so…
only want to live in your presence all the time,
laugh at your jokes, and finish words to your lines,

just want to climb mountains and sail seas with you
with unceasing teasing and games of taboo…
some people will never open up the lid
and let all the steam be visible again…

to be honest, i’m still figuring out exactly what love is.
trying so hard to be honest, in every way with this.
I don’t know the future, but I do know my dreams,
i don’t know the right words, and i can’t name feelings.

but i do know that every day we’ve spent as two
i’ve laughed twice as much, and started telling more truths,
closer to the person i want to be, when you’re there,
i guess sometimes a truth means more than a dare.

so all the words i hold unspoken within,
you can read them in how much time i’ve spent,
as someone so set on living all of my dreams,
how could you not know, how much i cared for thee?

sighs of ‘could be’


I don’t know what your getting at
or if your getting at anything
all I know is I got myself all worked up
started questioning everything…

But clinging onto the
to the thought of you & me
really isn’t healthy
& it’s draining me of energy
I face this decision, seriously
& shrug, ‘someday, could be’…

I’ve met my match,
you got me confused & unarmed
you know what’s going on
& I’m here feeling charmed

but charms wear off over time
I mean, maybe we could be a we
someday, somewhere, in the future,
but for now, your just exhausting.

For now, you are just a sigh.
for now, you are just a shrug
for now, I don’t know anymore
for now, I’m done. i’m done.

I’m done over-analyzing
i’m done trying to figure it out
Sure, see you someday soon,
right… someday, somehow…
