There's a certain madness
in not being able to express
to you how I feel.

I open my mouth, but
your eyes do not give
me permission to continue.

Your hand rests softly,
innocently, on my ribs,
bringing back a thousand
memories and fueling a thousand hopes.

My God, I miss you more
than I could ever tell you,
and more than you will ever
allow me to.

You always told me to never
hold back, to never change for
anyone, to say what I feel.
So I will write until I
stop feeling this ache for you,
or you look me in the eyes and
tell me to stop.

So I'll tell you the only
way I know how...
This. This is all I have.
And today it's yours.
I am still yours.
Don't hang your hopes and
dreams up on him. They are not
the same as yours.

I know he's right.
But how do you loosen
the grip, remove
hands from the steering
wheel of a hope?

You don't, even though
you know you can't reach
someone who doesn't want
to be reached.

You crash and burn, and
watch yourself go down
in a blaze of anything
but glory.

I loved you.
I did.
I ache for your arms,
even now.
My ribs, delicately tied to yours,
with the string of words
that meant nothing to you,
and everything to me...

Why didn't you love me?
Write hard and clear about what hurts~Ernest Hemingway
I want to know you.

Here, where the air lies
Heavy between us,
Where words remain unspoken...

I want to know you.

I want to record your sighs,
and play them back
when I am alone,
So that I might know the
Sounds of your frustrations
And your joys.

I want to memorize the staircases
Of your inner being;
I wish to know every cell
That molds you and imprisons you.

I want to form thoughts with
My hands and build sculptures
In your name, all from
Reflections of our time together.

I want to know the dreams
Behind your eyelids
And the darkness in your daylight.

I want to know you...
I want to know you.
