4/15 (15/30)

I ask myself when no one else will listen.

What the fuck do you plan on doing when

The truth between your lyrics become plain as day?

What’s your next move when she blows the dust off

Revealing that your novel was actually non-fiction

Romeo just refused to name Juliet out of fear of

Rejection.

What are you gonna do when she reads every line

Her brain sifting the gold from the waste and dirt

The weight of your words burying every letter like

Bones to a puppy in his new favorite yard?

It’s not like she’s stupid.

You like her because she gets it, right?

So why do you encode your emotions only to 

post your groans in poetic form for public opinion?

It’s like you want the world to know how hard 

you’ve tripped up on your typical routine

and fallen flat on your face in a puddle of feelings

and it’s not to say it’s a shallow attraction

but you still lack the accurate information to measure

the depth of your affection against her character

and for all you know,

you may be a pebble skipped on the surface

being laughed at by a stone who happened to

carry more weight behind his intentions and

dove to a point where no one knows but he and her

So why do you keep at it, knowing the risk

Knowing how much you stand to lose in pursuing the win?

I ask myself this often.

And everytime I leave this thought as an ellipsis,

Nothing easy was ever worth the chase.

Nothing ventured nothing gained.

And if I die in this battle, at least they’ll say

I bled my heart dry for what i believed in.

I wonder how biology can explain the physical pain you feel in your chest when all you want to do is be with someone.

But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends. But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly. You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable. Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives: First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed. That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life. It is, cause the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… it could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen. The terrifying thing is… what if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?

Shades of Grey (Friend-zone)

Grey

used to be one of my favorite colors

used to stand firmly between extremes

used to facilitate my decision making

and now

it only torments me

with how endless its spectrum seems

i’m a raindrop hanging on for dear life

clinging to a dark cloud’s silver lining

keeping me from falling as hard

as bombs when they soaked hiroshima

My passion’s held back by the lack of

a target willing to be smitten by the

unadulterated truth wrapped in emotion

But i can’t blame you for not wanting

To bite a bullet that you can dodge

I can’t hold you accountable 

When it comes to the investment i’ve made

I know that if I bet wrong, and it all crashes

a great depression is all i’m owed afterwards.

I used to love grey.

how neutral seemed to suit me as if

tailor fit for the way i saw the world

yet i never expected to become its prey

never thought i’d desire darkness 

if it meant i was unfit for the light of day

never wanted to feel like i’m

less than the ideal but more than a reject

because the middle can still be passed over.

i don’t want to be over you.

i don’t view you as an obstacle to be conquered

I don’t see this as a bridge to walk across

But i refuse to offer a river of tears

flowing from the ocean that is my heart.

Especially when friendship is bittersweet

But palatable enough to swallow with my pride

I won’t cry over a wound before it’s arrived

Maybe i’m just embracing feelings for a love

Discovered long before its appointed time.
