Magic

“I’m a tragedy” she said. “I have yet to see anything beautiful that isn’t. Your story provides meaning and you wear it on your face with a delicate smile.” He continued “Anyone can see you’re magic.” “People don’t believe in magic” she says staring blankly past him. “I do.” He took her body into his…

Tonight

And tonight I don’t want to think about the millions of ways we could’ve been everything to each other. Tonight I want to figure out how I can be everything to myself, while you fall asleep thinking of her. Missing her. Tonight I don’t want to think of the alternate dimension where you choose me….

Natural Disaster

The ocean is my favorite natural disaster Deep and calm A massive body of water sitting in a bowl Blue planet in space   Only the ocean isn’t a disaster until it meets wind I wasn’t a disaster until I crashed into him Sleeping giant hurricane If the earth shifts and shakes—tsunami Enough power to…
