watering i’s…   [POEM]

i messed up
loving halfheartedly
i should have given time
but i instead chose honesty
and so i became more or less
the promise of probably
i gave my all, partially
the perfect peace to a problem
was a part of me
i knew this awhile before now
but i had parted, free

you feel insignificant
my attention is inconsiderate
not for intention,
but because of ignorance
you insinuate otherwise
but my sense is intimate
you want more from me
i want something all different
we both want it now, instantly

i messed up
loving you halfheartedly
i should have given you time
but i instead chose honesty
and so i became more or less
the promise of your probably
i gave you my all, partially
the perfect peace to your problem
was a part of me
i knew this awhile before now
but we had parted, free

i resent the way that led us here
i present you that said just clear
going through the motions
because we had no focus, near
i was still wanting my wants
and you were far from hopeless,
cheers
would have been better off, on
but we kept missing that train, it’s gone
and now we’re here

i messed up, bad
loving you halfheartedly, mad
i should have given you time
but i chose the honesty i had
and so i became more or less
a promise, and you’re probably, sad
i gave you my all, partially instead
the perfect peace to your problem was led
but was a part of me, fed
i knew this awhile before now,
but we were already dead
and we had parted, free, to laugh.

Even as it seems… [POEM]

you love
because you love
and for no other reason
than was
until you can prove
to yourself
that trying not to love
is no help

even as it seems

because love
is no way to live
yet love
is life itself
the much you fight to give
love is like its self
it survives,
despite its self
in spite of all the hurt
it comes,
and it helps…
while love won’t ever loathe
being the ship
that rights itself

even as it seems

that there is a love
that likes you just right
and will love you just like
for no reason other than that
and in knowing
that you just might
find it good enough to trust
and so you feel confident,
and adjust like…

you were told to,
because you were supposed to.
