Of course You know Another night No sleep Sharing bar-close kisses with strangers Post-lust-call Drug-driven hang-outs Snorting powders until daylight Swore, before you came along it was the last time. Swear, I was fine. Found what I’d wanted. Somehow made it mine. Too bad it takes two or more for our relationship, And it only […]

Feign forever Pretend for tonight We’ll act like good lovers Act like we got this for life Knowing damn well this ends There’s no such thing as forever Only just tonight So let’s cling to the covers Tomorrow, we’ll both be alright Kiss me like it means forever Even though it’s just tonight It could […]

Is it a cop-out to never love again? To deny any and all the possibilities of it? Regularly battle with the idea that this is for the best: to remain vacant and hollow in interactions with others in order to protect what’s left of my particularly fragile heart. Other times I know that those connections […]

Learning the specials of the hipster, local dive-bar so well I could repeat them to you. Not that I ever order them unless they’re cheaper than my regular Whiskey Sour. Still frugal as fuck. Always broke as shit. Probably because I feed off seedy little joints like this one for inspiration, and they won’t let […]

Still trying to get away from you Been trying hard to escape from thoughts of you All marked in pen and sharpie Knowing I can’t just erase you Leaving you alone for the good of us There’s no point in chasing you Still trying to come to simple terms that one day, The day I […]

We’ve embraced each other: materialism and I. Pseudo-social success with ample nod from the local in-crowd. No hassle and free VIP strip-club access around the city. After-parties high up in lofts, somehow higher than we get. Always looking better than we feel. The surface is tailored, matching and adorned with shiny accoutrements. Layers deeper, things […]

How long until you know that I want you? Don’t want to be a creep, but girl, you got me Facebook creeping Blame it on you, from all the cheesing we do on the weekends Whatever it may be, girl, please believe it You might want this, but moreso, you could need this

You say I can’t force destiny Won’t stop me from trying Build my own future Content with the unknown of dying Playing against the universe Like it can’t catch me Unregretfully expecting You standing next to me
