67 (who?)
i like the things that go unspoken
between you and me,
like the night we spent on the beach
lying cramped on a shitty, five-dollar walgreens towel
with another frayed over us,
and hearing the string
of intoxicated teenagers walk by and say,
they're watching the stars at night.

and no matter how much that girl,
clearly filled to her brim
with vodka as she tripped along the sand,
lacked eloquence,
she spoke something more beautiful
than a van gogh painting.

we were romance, we were god,
and i know i must believe in god
because of the feeling building in my bones
when i see those "jesus saves" signs,
black with white lettering,
bordering the highway.

i feel a sense of peace
when you hum off-key to your songs
and your black truck blends with the sky.
you feel like a saviour when we're
caught in each others' arms,
but we'll only get to heaven
if we make it through the night.

and if only i could,
i would show you the scriptures
i've penned to express
the buoyancy you've rebirthed in me,
giving me a new easter to
find myself thankful for,
as i draw out my beliefs-

my religion is poetry,
and in you
is where i keep my faith.
i like this. this is what i needed. this is how i felt after friday, after last night. i am so thankful for his presence in my life, and so thankful for my best friend for guiding me when i falter. thank you.

I found this to be much more powerful than many of your recent works. Probably because I like scenarios with beaches and beauty in ugliness? Anyway, thanks for sharing.
thank you very much!
It flows well. A nice read :hug:
