— a poem of potpourris.

“When a semicolon joins two or more ideas in one sentence, those ideas are then given equal rank.”

Your name’s written all over my tongue; surfing the riptides
Thoughts of you cavort; leaving marks on the mind
Time rolled disheveled to little glimpses; composure is what we seek
Heaps of feelings left unsaid; going
there and back again
Questions remain unanswered; the what-ifs subjugates
Not sure of what’s right; not sure if I want to be
Weeping days are ahead; joy feels far-flung
Euphoria’s too far to reach; beyond the flickering lights of the night
Delusional is what I am;
nothing more and nothing less.

Went on and on and so forth the morning after

As the hours blurred into days and so on into months,
I rest my awfully crowded head and wish for the day
where our warmths would once again collide
as I gently brush aside my sight and call it a night.

I’ll have the sun again tomorrow; a new dawn
only to pollute them with my longing of the day
where I could finally show all the things I went through
simply to get to you.

— a poem of potpourris.

Where no one thought I’d be, including you.

I promise you’ll find me near when you crave me,
Swear I’m too close to miss.
I’m all yours, and I never was
I’m the new lover, the death to your existence
The unanswered calls; the vagueness of it all
I’m both the remedy and the quick fix.
The light you never let out, the doors you left unshut
The road you left untravelled, the heat that comforts
The never-ending night, the hours passing by
The her you’d love to have but never care again
I’m with you through everything; nothing, and all at once

Until hell itself freezes over.

Each wave of restlessness that crashes ashore
And the ever-unwinding road,
Each leaf that falls from the withering sycamore
and dreams so surreal it left me gasping for more,
all of them made me realize
this whole time, on every step I took
I thought of only you and never stopped.

Now playing:

Blanco White — Sol
