"I just need to know that it's possible that two people can stay happy together forever."
Almost 24.This ache in my chest is infrequent now- this longing, this nostalgia.Almost 24. by loopy-lexy
Unrequited love is a sorrow you’ll miss, I promise.
I need to feel this way to feel I have anything left to say.
I’m not sixteen years old anymore.
I’m almost twenty-four and I know what I want and who I want to be and who I want to be with.
And I’m fine.
And sometimes, when I’m lucky, when the window rattles with wind and rain and the air smells like winter, sometimes-
I still ache.
i wonder what you could possibly knowThe world is moving too fast for me.i wonder what you could possibly know by loopy-lexy
I can barely take a breath before
everything is gone or changed or
missing and I'm emptier than I was
yesterday, when I was as empty as I could be.
I turn on the porch light as though
I'm waiting for someone. And perhaps I am,
because not waiting is foreign to me.
It takes all my don't-wants to figure out what I do want.
I don't want to just see how it goes. I
don't want to be convenient. I don't
want to be an optional possibility.
I want to be a big event.

june.I think it's your birthday today.june. by loopy-lexy
I should be certain but sometimes
it seems as though everyone was
born in June
and it makes me wonder
what happened in October '89
that had everyone making love.
I don't know about '89 but
in 2009 you were the glue mending
my broken excuse for a heart,
the breath in my every laugh.
I was addicted to your logical, reassuring mind
and ever-present promise of hope.
I was addicted to being needed,
to keeping all the secrets tearing you apart.
I miss being your turquoise terminator
and crumpled crumpet and saucy salamander
and effervescent iguana.
I miss complaining and over sharing
and knowing you'd listen to it all.
I miss believing we'd have that love forever.
So maybe I'll say happy birthday
and we can keep pretending nothing is wrong.
Or I'll pretend I forgot, the same way you forgot mine.
Or I'll congratulate you-
twenty-one years old
and still too thick to see how you've broken my heart.
series of events so sad.you are perfect, but you are broken.series of events so sad. by tragicvista
you are broken, but you're fixable.
you're fixable, but i'm reluctant.
i'm reluctant, but i'll do anything for you.
but even though i'll do anything,
i won't be able to set you free.
and if i can't set you free,
you don't want me.
the things we tell ourselves.i used to ask myself why you would never touch me unless we were alonethe things we tell ourselves. by wolfet
and even then, sweating unspoken questions and turmoil in your basement
(your mother always had a fire going, who lights fires in august?)
you would reach out, hesitantly, afraid of crushing my paper-thin wings
with one finger you would trace a small circle in the skin on my hip
then pull away, cradling your hand with its second degree burns.
i used to wonder why most of our love affair was carried out in glances
furtive looks across oceans of misunderstanding faces
each one a mask of a silent threat, and you terrified of being discovered
not embarrassed of me, no, with my hips and large, willing brown eyes
(a deer trusting the truck not to hit it, even as it crumples under the wheels)
but of yourself, and the things your glances said when no one else was looking.
once you told me that God, or perhaps the Devil, had sent me to you
that i was the apple in your garden, and you, only human you said this t

intoxicating. Oh how
I love your heartbeat.

that's kind of different
from the usual.
I'm going to talk to you
until I find out
what keeps you
up at night.
I need to unlock
the contents of your
brain, only to spill
its secrets all over
the ground so I can
sort through them.
Then I'll comfort you
just enough to make it
I'm going to make you need me.
