you could love a kid from far away,
and ten a month is all you'd pay.

love her caus she makes you seem
like love is truly what you mean.

and how you'd realize when you're sad
that love is what you never had,

that caring isn't love, alone.

it takes a heart to leave a home.

if what you see around you is all a lie,
then what is the truth?

you have hands
pulsing with omnipotence,

and a heart
pounding with courage,

to fear the world you live in.
that is when you die.

if you could say every word
exactly how you wanted to say it,
you wouldn't need to write.

whenever i see that building,
smell those flowers,
read your letter,
i live the whole thing all over again.

you are my own private purgatory.

there was a time
when i never thought we'd be friends again
when the pain overtook the bond in all its mess of sound.

the pain is gone now.

thank you for waiting.

and then. the silence was broken.

and the words began to bubble and hiss and ooze out from every crack in the ground.
and they crawled up the walls and made faces on the ceilings.

"we are words", they said."we have come to redeem you. to let all of them know you are here."

and i told them, "i know nothing of you. but already, there's this feeling. i need you."

"you will learn and it will hurt until you've realized that they feel just like you. we will be here for them and for you."

"will the pain be for long?"

"it will always be with you. but you will thank us later. they always do."

and so i cursed the words
until i learned
what they really meant.

and i was thankful
despite the pain.

you cannot begin to put it together
if you cannot see the pieces.

you can read all the words you want
but it doesn't change
your fear to live them.

being you is hard
but i bet you're the only one who could do it

there is an us
so much more powerful
than one could ever dream

i've never felt so lonely
as i do when i'm with you

Friday, January 8, 2010

you've arrived

Sunday, January 3, 2010

so while you're laying asleep at night thinking of you
i'm laying awake at night thinking of you too
and wondering if you'll ever return the favor.
