You

Standard

You.
Thoughts of you…
The alarm goes off to thoughts of you.
I step out of bed and into thoughts of you.
I brush my teeth in tempo with your heartbeat

You.
I sit in class glancing at the clock-
thoughts of you 
Doodle your name, 
thoughts of you
The professor asks me a question
I silently think “the answer is you”

You.
Thoughts of you
I end my day, and undress to thoughts of you.
I’m warm in your sweatshirt…I breathe in thoughts of you.
I set my alarm for the next morning
And lay myself down on your side of the bed
I sleep to dream…only thoughts of you

The Story of Laughter and Gloom

Standard

 

The laughing one
The flower princess
The woodland trespasser
Eyed, there, lurking in the shadows
The quiet one
The watching one
The somber one
Then he vanished
Years passed
The laughing one aged
She shed her fairy wings for pencil skirts
And a bun
The somber one grew tired
World weary he was
The glamour of living was rubbed away.
But fate told him to chin up
Dancing in the light of a small candle flame
Destiny waited for him
In the form of a laughing girl
Brought together delight beyond measure
Knowing that he was there
She for him
He for her
In his quiet strength
Wrapped
Fearing nothing
Darkness stole her smile
She shattered into pieces
The laughing one
The fragile one
But the strong one picked up the broken pieces
He placed them in his heart
And there they healed and became whole again.
The laughing one learned
Again
 To smile
