Have You Ever?

Have you Ever?

Have you ever felt alone,

Like if you shouted at the top of your lungs over the Effiel tower, people still wouldn’t hear you?

Have you ever been consumed in thought,

So much so that you accidentally use your car keys to try to unlock your front door?

Have you ever been so confused,

That that you start asking your pet or your pillow for answers?

Have you ever felt betrayed,

Like when your friend use to by like your brother/sister, but now they have become your sworn enemy?

Have you ever had a longing for someone,

Like when say you will trek the mountains, the ocean, and Atlantis for them,

But when you see them pass by, you dumbly walk the other way?

If you have ever felt any of these things, be grateful, you are still very much alive.

 

Young Love

I want you to know I love you.

Yes you, the boy with the eyes, that has a light brown hue,

That turns a dirty blond on a spring infected morning.

You had me at first lust, without even courting.

 

Two young doves when we met.

Moved in together before you and my mother even met.

Mother said slow down, God’s time is the right time.

But the right time is this time because my time, is always the right time.

Or so I thought.

 

Our love fell apart in the fall.

Standing on my wall of regrets I wanted to fall, so that I could never recall,

Not the lies you told me…. well sort of,

But the lies I told myself, thinking this could be love.
