I Just Took A DNA Test And I’m 100% That Drink

We met, two people
You stepped into that puddle
And I dried your eyes
Like a wish granted
You got inside and lived in me
In the sweetest of ways
Perfect nights
Gifted days

You came into my eyes with style and grace
I came to curse the day I couldn’t see your face
A supercharged feeling that I couldn’t replace
Now it feels like nothing
Your eyes told me something that I needed to hear
The nights we held each other so impossibly near
I felt like I could do anything
Now I feel like nothing

There was a light that would never go out
But it went out, when you went out with him
I can’t just go back to what could have been
A gift taken for granted
You left me behind and drifted
In the cruelest of ways
Sinking nights
Twisted days

You came into my eyes with style and grace
I came to curse the day I couldn’t see your face
A supercharged feeling that I couldn’t replace
Now it feels like nothing
Your eyes told me something that I needed to hear
The nights we held each other so impossibly near
I felt like I could do anything
Now I feel like nothing

You want to talk but we can’t go back again
You can’t slam the door in my face
And then knock for closure
You want to walk hand in hand
But I’ll be thinking of you with him
Maybe you can’t stand to be alone
But I can, and it’s over

We were falling in love
We were falling in love
We were falling in love
Now we’re just falling

On Pinky Swearing

In that same place, the place where we spoke of futures and things to come, I sat alone and thought. Shivers ran through my body like shadows of kaleidoscope, twisting and changing into ever more interesting shapes. Your fingertips grazed my imagination, and my lips caressed your magic and our destiny.

Could there be any other way? Could there be any other place? Impossible, your eyes argued. Agreed, my hands conceded. Don’t you ever leave me again, your mouth beckoned. Never, my body promised.

We shook hands… in our own way.

What I Meant To Say

Vague responses to clear cut questions mean repeats, repeats, repeats. The ice melts. It never really broke, did it?

He was there, and you didn’t warn me. And again today, you didn’t warn me. The pink flags were there, edging red, daring me to pull out.

I can’t pull this off anymore, but I can pull the wool off my eyes. I wasn’t pushing you away, but I can push the envelope. I wasn’t dragging this out, but it was a drag.

I miss you, goddammit.

The One Who Likes Rainstorms

I rained
This one stayed inside
That one had an umbrella
She ran and played in it
I subsided
She splashed in my puddles
Scattering me everywhere
Gathering me into her heart

Your Security Clearance Is Denied

You gave me nothing at all
Even when I gave you my best
You want me playing your song
But I’m not taking requests
You pushed me so I would fall
I don’t fall easily
You pushed me against the wall
You were just teasing me

I hope you break when I drop you
Hope I’m the person to stop you
Hope it gets worse for you
I hope it hurts for you
I hope you break when I drop you

Thirteen And The Caffeine Machines

I awaken after a dream
I’m walking around a tour bus
a man tells me what he’ll do if I don’t stop
but don’t stop what?
I don’t know what he means
I have no idea
it stresses me out
but only for a minute
while I work out the metaphor
coffee warms my soul
the familiarity is like a singularity
where the caffeine machines
bond with my thoughts
and we take turns
controlling each other
