Sunday Night

Weekday Series Themed Poems About an Impossible Crush

It’s 11pm
And I can’t stop thinking about you
And what it might be like
To feel the weight
Of your body
Heavy
In truth and effort
Atop all of my naked passion
The madness in the hunger
The absence of sense in the urge
Makes the yearning
Makes the waiting
Makes all of the impossible time to get here
Worth this sin
And when you rest yourself
Inside of me
And your breath
On the old familiar pillow
Wearing the very linens
That embraced my wake this morning
A thousand years ago
Before I felt your weight
Before I let you change
My Everything
Your breath will sound like life
Like feeling alive
And I might cry
And you might just keep on breathing
And resting
Inside of me
And my tears will roll onto the 1,000 year old linens
And I will smile
And shake
And thank everything in this mad world for existing in the first place
For letting me have this moment
This life
This feeling of being
Alive

You Did NOT Die Today

It’s after midnight now. On January 11th, 2016. You did not die today. And I feel like a total weirdo. Sitting here by myself sobbing uncontrollably over you. Over someone I do not know. And then, “Lazarus” comes through my computer speakers. “Look up here, I’m in...
