Notice me
the way I notice you.

i need an alibi for where i've been
i knew better than to call you, but i did
now i'm contemplating each diving line between
"mistake" and "i knew better, but i did"

Yes, you are only one.
No, it is not enough.

Mar. 15th, 2017

I can't cage you in my arms
when my heart is jumping forward
to avoid your false alarms.
And you can't tell me not to stay
when I open up your window
and I watch you fly away.

I could never go with you, no matter how I wanted to.

Mar. 8th, 2017

All the comrades that e'er I had are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had, they wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise
And you should not
I gently rise and I'll softly call, good night, and joy be with you all

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ordered been
A time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass, good night, and joy be with you all

I only want to say,
if there is a way,
take this cup away from me
for I don't want to taste its poison. Feel it burn me.
I have changed.
(I'm not as sure as when we started.)
Then, I was inspired.
Now. I'm sad and tired.
Listen-- surely I've exceeded expectations;
could you ask as much from any other man?
After all, I've tried for three years.
Seems like
ninety.
Why then am I scared to finish what I started?
What you started.
I didn't start it.

I just have to save them because, after all,
a person's a person, no matter how small.
To say that you are pretty
Would be like saying that the ocean is blue.
Because the ocean is filled with all kinds of colors,
And I see all kinds of things when I look at you.
And I want to explore you
With my tennis shoes off,
Standing ankle deep in a tide pool with my khaki pants rolled up.

I know that you checked my pulse
to see if I was freaking out
'cause you were freaking out
(and I don't really know if I'm lying to you
or hiding the truth from myself)
