here is half of me

sit with her for a moment

see if she is someone you could love

i cut you in two the moment i met you.

 

no one ever knows everything about a person.

 

 

 

 

love is

how two people can be two people

but then at a certain point

share a space

where they exist

together

it sounds so simple until

i’m hogging all of the bed sheets

and you’re drinking the last of the juice

and we’re arguing over nothing

and can’t remember

the last time we laughed.

 

 

 

 

i wanna see the way you do

so i try on your glasses

i wanna love the way you do

so i try to open up

and tell you that i love you

but my voice breaks

and i tell you that i like your shirt instead

and we keep walking.

 

 

 

 

if i let you in

you will wear me out

i grew tired of love once

i sat down and was bleeding

light headed

lacked focus

blood all over

my white clothes

i tried to wash it away

but they are forever a light pink

and now i only wear black.
