Addiction

Our relationship has never been the healthiest

We drive each other crazy

And have even crossed a line

There’s no respect

No love

Yet we are still here

“Leave him,” is what I hear

But how can I?

If every time I do try

You reel me back in

We are connected by a red threat

And even though it’s not healthy

And even though I shouldn’t say this

I can’t let you go

Because you are

You will always be

My addiction

With a Hint of Jealousy

As a Barista, I know it is your job to smile. It is your job to devote your full attention to their needs. No matter how minuscule they may be.

But I can’t stand it.

No matter how many times you reassure me that it’s okay. That it doesn’t mean anything. I can’t help but submit to this hint of jealousy.

But how can’t I?

You’re beautiful and kind. You are a wonderful listener. And that smile! No matter the situation, that smiles makes it seem easier to handle.

But as I look back at you and our eyes meet, I can’t help but feel my cheeks flush.

Because even though they may have your smile, I have your eyes.

 

First Impressions

I am a person of few words

I am the person that’s hard to read

I am emotionless and blunt

I seem to not have any decent traits

These are things usually said about me

But I will say on thing–one thing only

Keep your opinions to yourself

Because you haven’t taken the time to know me

 

 

 

Captivated By You

These feelings I cherish

These memories I keep

They all have something in common

They all revolve around you

You have never been one of many words

And I haven’t had a problem with that

In fact, they’ve had the opposite affect on me

I cherish them

They are who you are

While some find them odd

And others find it distasteful

I embrace them

In a way—

When our eyes meet

When I am the only who understands

It feels as if the ocean speaks to me

The ocean petrifies me

Yet you know that

But as long as you are by my side

The waves will be nothing but soothing and gentle

I will forever cherish these feelings

These memories I will treasure

So for now

While we still can

Let me be by your side

Because just like the ocean

The future is unpredictable
