I remember how much I wanted you Craved you like a meal only grandma could cook Longed for you Like stewed peas with spinners Served over white rice that tastes nicer Than any restaurant could dare make The sweetness of the meat Contrasting the salty of the marrow….
In hindsight I know You didn’t deserve me. But I feel I deserved you– Every bit of joy, But more times than no I feel I deserved every bit of pain;
Like a recovering amnesiac I get vivid flashbacks: Triggers Like a shot to the head I feel: Like a survivor In a burn unit That much more hesitant To light fires
Now that the bleeding has eased And the knives have been sheathed We may heal You and me Us
Some people make love Some people make do But you and me We made poetry
funny enough i don’t like repeating myself but i like saying i love you.
Give me the ones who dare to care to make a difference The ones with fear in their glare but still stand for change
