Reminder

Keep doing it. Remind me to live in the
moment instead of giving energy to spaces
we haven’t even stepped into.
I’m a dreamer, sometimes I just get carried away.
I’ll admit, the reminder sort of feels like
some air has been let out of my balloon yet
I’m still filled enough to keep floating
towards whatever we might become…
Just at a much healthier and realistic pace.

Wants

I want a forever partner more than I want the
idealistic marriage we all get lost trying to find.
I want a kind love more than I want a lover.
I want someone who truly loves themselves
because I’ve learned one can only love me
to the extent they honestly love themselves.

Vibes

Maybe my memory has betrayed me but
you and I were never this calculated.
We would literally just chill and
vibe on whatever, wherever…
Mostly in bed or on the couch because
we’re both homebodies, yet still it was easy.
Can we go back to that?
Can we not overthink us?
Can we just get back to good vibes,
grandiose laughs and great sex?

They

We can only love each other to the
extent our personal demons will allow.
Until we confront them and
cut ties for good, they’ll continue
to disrupt the beauty of us.
Maybe we should just
introduce them to each other…
Maybe they’ll finally heal
and leave us to do the same.
