Heart Full of Bees

November 29, 2016

Its easy to romanticize bees,
When they dance
Instead of speak,

Its easy to romanticize bees,
As they obey their
Queen’s every whim,

Its easy to romanticize bees,
Atop their mountain
Flowers,

Its easy to romanticize bees,
Because
Your heart is full of them.


Ionized

from the stoic advances
of an ignorant boy
to the knowing glances
of a half-tamed lover


I Follow the Light

November 20, 2016

From hope
to expectation
I follow the light
until it dies.

I know I shouldn’t
rely —
but I follow that light
until it dies.

Left listless
in the darkness of an empty bedroom.
I’ve followed the light,
until it died.


An Unfortunate Verse

November 13, 2016

I’ve forgotten everything
I’ve ever said.
except for when,
I told myself
“You’ll never win.”
