Butterflies

Butterflies are set free from her mouth,

the way none-sense usually is.

You see, she’s the type to speak before she thinks,

a quality others admire most about her.

Thousands of butterflies escaped

and filled the room.

Her mouth hung open.

Not word bounced off the walls,

only thoughts and butterflies.

Matters Of Love

The gates of her garden are left open to wanderers

They say she’s too friendly and she shouldn’t be so trusting

that matters of love are a waste of time

But that isn’t her

The roses died and bloomed

and dried out

They’ve been over watered,

pruned too early,

and forgotten,

But come spring they show their rosy pink faces

As if all those things

could have destroyed a blooming rose

Kiss Me

While the world wastes away on a monotonous routine

step outside of it all and kiss me hard.

Don’t kiss me hard only after everything is falling apart

Kiss me hard when everything is going right

There’s no point in waiting

This is what life is:

connections, honesty, bravery

Show up, kiss me.

It’s not always easy,

but it makes life worth living

And these days it seems we need more reasons

to stay alive.

Know Yourself/Share Yourself

There are a million people that will love you and see you the way I do.

You are not stuck with one person

they are not the only one who can understand you.

But it is your job to understand you.

When you understand you and accept you

it doesn’t matter so much when others don’t

And then when those few people come along

who want to know every inch of the folds inside your skull

you’ll be able to tell them who you are

 

the idea of listening to you talk about who you were

and who you are

and who you wish to become

sounds like a conversation that’d peel me right open

 

let’s talk

Empowerment for the gas lit

They’re going to belittle you and question your thoughts

Keep empowering yourself

Keep thinking

They’re going to tell you how you should feel

Keep feeling every little thing that ripples through your veins

They’re going to tell you don’t worry about it now you have your whole life ahead of you

Get it done

They’re going to try to convince you that you should be doing it their way

Don’t you dare stop doing things the way things work for you

And know I will support you when they all laugh at your ideas and call them silly and call you stupid

Your ideas are not to be laughed at. And should be taken respectfully.

And you my free spirit are abso-fucking-lutely

Not Stupid

Her Looming Shadow

I spin her round
Like a top
No, more like a dance partner
She’s mad
She’s not interested in being spoken to this way
What does she know? She asks the heavens
And I dig in
I know about the sex
I know about the dirty little things she does when she thinks nobody’s looking
Those are the least of her worries
Because I have my dirty little habits too
And then she looks up
And her head aches
And her tummy growls
There’s a storm brewing
And it’s not coming to drop a house on the bad guys

Because bad guys don’t always lose
