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

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

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

I’ve forgotten everything

Only So

October 13, 2016

But we
leave it
only so.

Crossing Clarity

July 11, 2016

I am translucent
Figures on a map,
Hand drawn
And hopeful

I am electric shaking.

I am water to your will
Early morning
And a familiar favor
— always so distant.

I am giving up easy.

I am turning waves —
A tide crawling back to sea,
Whence a jealous ocean
claiming me

Be Alive First

March 13, 2016

We’re all going to die.
but the terrifying part
is that we’ve all gotta
be alive
