Weeping, I weep now.

Weeping, I weep now

As if thoughts of us

Watching them playback

In my mind, such beauty.


And rage, I'm full of now,

Hurt and anger filled.

I only wanted to touch

Your skin, your skin, perfection.


I just wanted you

Pressed naked,

Against me, seeking

Comfort in my protection.


You sought of course,

Ever seeking you were.

You still are, but you seek

Nothing in my arms.


Not now and not I,

For we both shall follow

Schedule. It's not human

nature to follow hearts.

Writer, poet, hopeless romantic, lover of art, fashion, style, design and self expression through these things. Aspiring attorney, maybe my writing will shorten the gap to law school...hopefully it inspires someone to chase their dreams!
