Way Up High In The Cosmos

"I just want to pour my soul out on someone and not have to worry about the mess I’ve made."

Andrea Slicker  (via fragilis)

chew your name and it tastes like
pecans and milk and
brown gasoline,
i have
never written a poem about
the way
you kissed of thunder or
how your fingers were
wet matches
against my skin, God, we could have
built cities, we could have started
but even Mt. Olympus
had it’s fall and even the stars forget
why they are burning"

"all these poems about people leaving and not one
about how I convinced myself to stay.
I know what you want to hear-
that I slayed the dragon and swallowed my demons
and laughed in the face of my nightmares
and lived happily ever after-
but the truth is much more ordinary.
the truth is I breathe through the pain
even on the days it whistles between my ribs
on every inhale every exhale
and I celebrate like hell on the days it doesn’t make a sound."

"As I see it, you are living with something that you keep hidden deep inside. Something heavy. I felt it from the first time I met you. You have a strong gaze, as if you have made up your mind about something. To tell you the truth, I myself carry such things around inside. Heavy things. That is how I can see it in you."

"I learned that people can easily forget that others are human."

"It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on this earth as though I had a right to be here."

I wanna show you how much I like you with lots of kisses in lots of places.

"Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one man seems nonsense to another."
