lately, i’ve been wasting every minute
choking on inevitabilities; wondering
how many times i’ll promise myself
this year i’ll be different until
i move on to something less
unattainable. truthfully, i’m just sorry
for the ones who still think
i’m trying

and i have been waiting an
ugly amount of years for my
prophetic completion-- a love like
i say you’re beautiful when really i mean
you make my heart stop, like
i was born to meet you or perhaps
i’m actually breaking some universal law
of equilibrium; loving something
so unnaturally
beautiful.

i want a love like that:
napkin poems, handwritten
and tender and accidental collisions
igniting a thousand forest fires
beneath my skin; me,

blossoming like a wildflower
on a california highway, basking
in the sun and ignored definition
of earthly limitations. i want to believe

that somewhere, there’s a boy
built of summer sunsets and shooting stars
for every homesick girl who never
quite fit in, that when he traces
patterns in her hands, he finds
something magical

that when he says i love you,
life would mean enough.
i'm still a romantic underneath all the awkwardness and cynicism and other garbage

(not sure on the ending)

This brought tears to my eyes. Your words are such moving words and if I can hug them I would.
