5 p.m. Nostalgia

Missing Someone

You stumbled in to my life, with your wild eyes and gentle hands. You made me feel alive, and I wanted to keep you as mine forever.



What I’ve come to realize is this:
You are the stars;
And I have wished upon you for so long.
I have wished for you for so long.
I left my gaze looking up,
But I never knew I had to wade through the darkness,
Only to find a light that has shimmered so brightly.

The Struggles of Grad School

The Office

College is fun – the best times of your life. Grad school is the biggest pain in the ass. And it’s a pain that you rationally and consciously chose to bestow upon yourself. I’m 25 – shouldn’t I have my life far more put together at this point? Instead, I feel like I’m teetering on the brink of insanity, from which only an IV drip of caffeine can save me.

If Only

If Only

If only you knew the power you have over me. Not in a controlling way, but in one where I feel my heart tug when you are not around. Where I catch my breath when you whisper my name. Where I understand that some sort of heaven exists when my lips are between yours.

Morning Conversations

Morning Air

It was more than the cool mist giving me goose bumps now.
It was abrupt, unexpected,
An interruption in the middle of my sentence.
And yet your eyes held such gentleness,
Soft, tender – you looked at me as if
you wanted to take care of me for the rest of forever.
