love, love, or love?

and he said, as he looked at his face
in the melting ice of his drink
i couldn’t tell if she was
infatuated, or truly into
the truth of me, if she even cared about
my ugly guts and insides and all those
vulnerabilities i could be hiding,
but i think, he said,
her desires were stuck to
the surface of my skin
letting her heart feel all of the hollow
lies she convinced herself was love,
but really was just an empty shell pretending
to sound like the ocean in her head
and now she has me all messed up
wondering if the love i know is actually love
or if it was all just a lie i misread

written by Tiny Fawns for daily prompt: penchant

to lose the sun

choose to be the sunlight people use
as rags to mop up their cloudy soppy days
you might feel a bit used, but without realizing
it, you probably made someone feel a little
less miserable, and a little more warm
when they felt they were losing everything
even the sunlight on a sunny day

the thinker & the dreamer

they both stitch up their minds and hearts
with different seams, and yet when
vulnerability opens the door, their thoughts appear
to walk hand in hand, not as far
away from one another as they seem

listening to the wind

the wind wants to be heard, but lacks a voice
so she grabs onto the backs of leaves and
shakes them, rattling fences,
throwing dirt into our eyes
waves rising and falling
did the wind catch the sails
to guide us to shore
did we hear anything at all
or was it better left unsaid
she’ll trail off, nothing more
than a gentle breeze like before

caught in the blue

my fingertips are blue from the cold
be my fire, warm me, turn my eyes to gold
so that my heart can be a little more bold
to hold out my cold hands and share
everything i’ve always should have told you
but, i was caught in the blue, swept into
something far away from you
i’m growing older now, but my heart
is still young and close to you

from genesis

you are the apple of my eye
and yet, i can’t tell
if you are a genuine prince charming
trying to write me into his fairy tale,
or something more alarming,
something pretending to be divine
crawling out of hell through wishing wells
trying to unravel my story,
attempting to cast a spell

empty and full

another person’s empty
makes me feel full
because i can pour my heart
into theirs, pull them out
of the void and into the light
but what makes me feel a fool
is when their full is cruel,
making me emptier, leaving me
a broken vessel, all the pieces
there, but lost in the night
