Boo

Sometimes
I feel like a

frail
wispy
thin
tiny
  secret
ghost

and my
unfinished
business
is finding out
if you ever
  really
loved me

like
you
  said
you did

Soulmates

I love all the cute ways
you show me you love me
like waiting five days
to return my calls
avoiding eye contact, and
that funny time you forgot my name

we'll be laughing about that one for a while

Nostalgia

Thirty years from now
we are holding hands
and laughing about
that poem I wrote
to tell you I love you
and how you had no idea
how I felt, even though
I ended it with the words
"How on earth could you possibly not know?"

Pretty

I should have known
When you walked in with that movie star face
That you’d never understand me
Nor I you
But what use is understanding
When dark eyes carve a longing trench
Deep and wide through the heart of me
I want to fill it with your stories
Hide myself away
Observe your careful hands in flight
As they reach through my closed lips
And pull out everything I never wanted to say
