I think… I think that I think too much. I worry about things out of my control. I think about people and situations beyond myself, and just get overwhelmed, yet you make sense. You fit. I’ve never had such an immediate state comfort with anyone else, but in these moments with you, I feel a balance that has a escaped me for years. There are people who constantly look for… Something. This unnamed, intangible experience. We wander this beautiful Earth, yearning for that feeling, that gives us and our spirits limitless flight. Well I think that this might be it. I think that while walking the streets, on this cold rainy summer night, I found it in the warmth of your red jacket. #poetry #hoodpoetics #streetpoetry #quicky #jacket #red #rain #streets #warmth
There are my good days. I have days where I wake up from good dreams. I have days when I look in the mirror and realize that I’m smiling. I was once told that the corners of my mouth were curved in such a way that even if I wanted to have a serious look, I would still be slightly smiling. It’s a physical aspect of my face, not forced at all, and some days I’m thankful for it. On days like that I know that whatever bad days you brought me, were worth the good days I have by myself. Oh my love, it turns out that have feelings I can’t control. On good days it’s my bliss knowing that I’m better off, and I don’t need anyone to tell me when enough is enough. #poetry #poetics #betteroff #doyou #youarebeautiful #eveninheartbreak #selfie #septum #blackandwhite
