grapefruit

grapefruit juice,
drippin off the side
of your mouth,
leaving your hands all
sticky
and sweet smellin.
i told you,
lovin me
is like pickin
the
sweetest juiciest
fruit of love.
did you ever imagine
me?

hand washing

remember to wash your
hands.
you've got coal
and dirt
left over from
messy hearts.
your soul don't live in the
slums
anymore.
you are home.

post summer growth

let yourself be
a flower
blooming.
no longer in a dark alley.
your words are honey
and love now.

Lessons in Overthinking

1. The only reason your heart fights alone
is because you can never get your
mind to follow.

2. Playing a dictator to a heavy sword
is much easier than loving with a soft soul.

3. You remember all the seeds of lies
that were planted outside of your home,
and you water them as if
they were the only ways
you were loved.

4. You think that the stars have put you here,
but really you thoughtfully manifested
your heart breaking.

5. Painfully, your mind believes you
are a damsel in distress,
always to be
alone.

and with much of nothing left

I've taken the sincerest thoughts of you,
and I have left my heart open,
without guard,
dripping of vulnerability and optimism. 
Purposely, 
I left time to reveal how cruel 
fate could really be
and my God, 
not that I have the best track record 
with working on my knees (forcing my eyes shut and 
feeling uncomfortable 
as I clasped my hands together), 
but my god, 
was fate as cold as a Minnesota winter.

magic

magic exists in the believer.
it manifests from the beauty of self.
when the soul
builds off of it’s own wisdom.
