thoughts of today

Sometimes I wake up

and wish I hadn’t

because whatever dream

I was having

was better than this.

Even though you weren’t there,

at least I didn’t know it.


There are photos of friends

that I am in,

that keep me afloat

but make me sad.

I want so much

for that happiness

to be my constant visage.




When she walks down the aisle

you feel that sense of calm

wash over you like you’re able to breathe

on the bottom of the ocean

while the chaos crashes above you

and your muscles relax,

and you hear nothing

but the tingling of your skin
