I want to write a love poem,
but I only want to be in love
if I have someone there with me.

instead,
I romanticise the efforts
of pressing pen to paper,
painting pages personal
and colouring them
the same green as your eyes-

your eyes.
that's something that never
strikes me as common,
as something permanent
like concrete,
or a given
like a constant variable.

to wake up,
and see the lids like curtains,
thick and deep like night,
over them,
I feel like I am a film photograph.

and when they open,
sealed with sleep
and more honest than ever
before a single wall can be erected,
I see a poem
as I begin to swim,
and forever,
in place of writing it down,
I smile along with you
and we readjust
to be closer and enfolded
like paper cranes
in the other's arms,
and,
with a connection,
brief,
of lips and teeth,
we drift off again
to a sultry sleep.
i may be in a relationship now, but i'm not in love, not yet


I CAPITALISED MY I'S? WHY? (it seemed like the thing to do.)

I love the description of eyes (: Maybe I'm a sucker for romanticising maths (though I'm not sure how on earth I could squeeze any of that out of it myself xD), but it's just perfect (:

lol it feels so weird to be responding to comments on pieces about him now, he broke up with me like a week and a half ago but it led to better things i think, it's just odd! thank you, dear <3 and let me know about your boy!!

I know that feeling. People often send sympathetic responses for things I wrote at a very different time in my life. I've had too much work to get through many of your deviations lately - I've got fourteen of them to read at some point xD
