74. and i am fear, i am love.


notes reverbrate in my head, songs drown in their own chords. words on words, words on words.
and i am fear, i am love.
i’ve been found out.

‘i am yours now
so now i don’t ever have to leave
i’ve been found out
so now i’ll never explore’

and i can’t stop thinking, though you’ve given me no reason to. you’ve been a darling, my precipice of love. 

it is me, it is i.

i’ve betrayed your honest motifs by wanting more, by being unsure. every other girl would be thankful to never have to leave, but i am i. i can only think of all the lands whose flowers won’t open their buds to me, of all the trees that won’t bloom for me.

i am me and this is i.

i want to come and go, spending every morning in your harbour, every night – under the shine of communal stars.
i’m only tender and i’m only young. i can’t go for days without setting bridges on fire.

imma let it burn.

    There are some of us who can’t get enough isn’t there? The burning could go on forever, the conversations never ending
    wouldn’t life be grand – love would be

    enjoy!!

  3. fuck, i feel like i completely know what you mean. i read this with my mouth dropped cause i felt every line!
    “every other girl would be thankful to never have to leave, but i am i.” i feel like that a lot. but it’s completely normal to want more. you’d be boring if you didn’t.

    “i can’t go for days without setting bridges on fire.

    imma let it burn.”

    this is just beautiful. alkgjalk! i love your poetry, my god!
