|Not much to me, Perhaps I'm simple.|
I'll Never Grow TiredTonight I'm going to stop youI'll Never Grow Tired by daybreaksmiles
on the porch, we'll stand toe to toe
the way we used to when
the pulse that thrummed
quick and strong through our veins
sang out our young, unbridled hope.
Our eyes will meet and,
just like the first time,
I'll take a moment to run my fingers
through your shining thoughts and
caress the sharp lines of your mind.
I'll lean forward and press my lips onto
the the flower-petal curve of your self-expression,
and that will be enough for you
to take me by the hand
and lead me up the stairs.
In the soft moonlight that filters through
the trees and our gauzy curtains
I'll unbutton your fears and slip them from your shoulders,
revealing smooth broad dreams. And,
careful not to miss a single freckle of insecurity,
I'll kiss my way down to the hollow of your throat,
where your soft-spoken tendencies
rest among unshakable beliefs.
Between the ridges of your ribs I'll count your worries
and smooth them away with my fingertips.
Over the subtle curve of your hips
Jumbled concern.I'm losing my voice,Jumbled concern. by awakebutasleep
knowing the lies that slits my lip.
Nervous shaky hands grab mounds of food, as if the calories could protect me.
What are these misfit sentences trying to scream what I cannot?
Self hatred has dragged its claws into my heart.
I cannot look right into the mirror.
Deep seaI'm drowning in the deep sea, I scream.Deep sea by awakebutasleep
People reply; they can't help me.
Just a bit.Always wanting to be someone else, other than myself.... what a shame.Just a bit. by awakebutasleep
I'm in a world full of billions alive, so, why don't I feel like I'm living?
