Forever it does remind me,
Of an unquenchable thirst,
As I can't drink yet can drown,
And must I, before I burst?

An object warm and white,

Cup-like with a handle at its side.

Halfway filled with a liquid,

A liquid with a name,

Its name being coffee.


Eager am I to hold this cup,

Equally eager am I to drink

From its rim which my lips shall touch.

Slowly yet quickly I do tilt the cup

And the liquid pours into my mouth.


The liquid's bitter taste,

Yet sweet and warm it is.

Satisfying is the taste,

So gleefully I do drink more

And indulge myself in this sweet galore. 


Freely does the liquid

Move around in my mouth

As it plays with my tongue

Tickling its taste-buds.

Around and between my teeth it goes

'til I move it back with my tongue

To the back of my mouth

Where the coffee meets its doom.

Down my throat it goes,

The aftertaste the same as before.

My thirst craves evermore,

Thus I drink some more.


To Find Myself Without Love

I smiled and let you in;

You tripped on my wires.

Explosions made you run to me closer,

Unaware I felt the tremors of every footstep that neared me,

So I sank, as you held on tightly.


My body survives, but my mind stays with the current,

Returning me to you once again;
I’m a slave to hungry love.

Following the path to where you wait for me, always,

Forgiveness comes easy;
When I found myself, you seemed so far away.


Pulling misguided arrows from my chest,

Leaving you behind as I cast my boat off to sunrise,

Rowing down to where the river meets the sky,

Gathering my wings;

Flying solo.


The sky offers no freedom,

Only tiredness and lonesome,

Clarity of thoughts beat needles into sanity.

Crashing into whirlpools, escaping into waterfalls,

Chasing thirst in the deserts of your land.

Giving up what is loved because together there can be no progress, just the same cycle on repeat

I Would


What would I do for you?
The proper question is,
What wouldn’t I do for you?
Because I know in the end,
That being with you is bliss

I would gladly freeze for you
Just because I know that
You will warm me up
Wrap me in your arms,
Causing my temp to go up, stat

I would gladly starve for you
I would simply dine on your love,
Because I know your love
Is like manna sent,
From the heavens above

I would gladly go thirsty for you
And that would be
Because I know you will
Cut yourself make yourself bleed,
So I could drink, you see

State anything you wish
And I will tell you how
He would make it better
Because his love for me,
Is just like “Wow”

This was written to my "boyfriend" Tom ___. This was written just before I met up with him last. These are the things I would gladly do for him, however I dont rightly believe theres a point. But I still would.
