PODCAST: Love, Life & Poetry

Reading poetry is one thing but hearing it gives an entirely different experience! I created this podcast to give my words a place to speak a little more loudly. Though they will always have a safe space to continue to whisper here. Please like, share, subscribe and review on your favorite listening platform. In the meantime, you can catch the latest episode anytime right here. The ‘Love, Life & Poetry’ podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Breaker, Pocketcasts and more.

Can’t

I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of word far greater
to identify this kind of feeling.
Its like the moon finally got to kiss
the sun without igniting into flames.
Like God himself picked me up and
gently placed me in your ocean yet
made sure I could still breathe
while drowning in our existence.
So I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of a word far greater.

Every

Every. single. one. of. them.
Thought I’d never leave.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Have regretted the day I left.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Took advantage of my kind love.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Treated me like I was replaceable.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Tried desperately to win me back.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Desired me, admired me, loved me.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Couldn’t love me all the way through.
Are. you. one. of. them. too?

This

This thing between us is powerful.
Immensely palpable, nearly tangible.
I think I can actually strum the
string that pulls us together.
It seems to keep us tethered
even when we’re miles apart.
And in those moments we share the
same space, we explode without
breaking into a million pieces as this
thing also inexplicably keeps us whole.
