I spent

So many hours

With you glued to my face

That when you left, all i could hear was the silence

It rushed in into

The places you had suddenly filled with

Hysterical stories of death

And groceries stores

And being trapped in the freezer

beside the milk

and her face that looks in

at us trapped


stuck together




And we talked about the epic hug fight

In which

I roll down



onto the highway

and into the ditch

beside a fence

and a field

and a boatload of conversations

about hermits

that live together

defeating the purpose

and the dead bodies under my bed

some of which aren’t actually dead



inside the boat we will share

when we are out of college

and away

away from them

the world

and scary fathers with shot guns

he says im sorry

and after im done saying that’s ok daddy,

I walk away

And disturb you in your dreams

About this screwed up world

And the screwed up songs

Of singing faces that you give to me

About singing faces

That disappears

Every time you leave

To run

Those ten feet

So that I can


To the beat



of your heart

under the t shirt

t shirt that you send me

in a bubble envelope

that I place

beside my face

and pretend

just pretend

that you are here

here with me

with me in that dark

under the set piece

in which we were caught

and our respect questioned

until im sorry

turns to Polaroid

and I am

forced to just

say thankyou


while you say

I love you

I love you

I love you nonexistent hair

That you had cut off

By your sister

Who gets you


On coke, and oh yeah


Until you ask me politely

To sit on you

And you sing about rum and Caribou Lou

On the phone with Jessica

For 2 hours

We watch pieces of shiny toy guns

Shooting up the ting tings

And mgmt

Singing songs about living the dream

And the way the killers

Stole the sound of modest mouse

And we deny

Deny to him

What happened

Until I explain

My fears

That are

Lastly nonexistent

Of him

And his way that

He pulls me in

Right off my feet

Into a

Gdfbb day

In which I run

Run run


Into his apologetic


Of I’m sorrys

I love you’s

Screaming futons

And the death of pillows



When I’m sorry isn’t enough

And the small


That calls at midnight

And is shut


By my fathers loud hello

Good bye



Then no longer

you glued to my face

That when you left, all i could hear was the silence

It rushed in into

The places you had suddenly filled with

What will be.

For now.

For then


Main and new England

Heres to

Canadian death race

And running across the grand canyon


All the ands

That are to come


It’s the quiet

Of the ache

Of what you did to me

And the ache

Of what I am waiting for

Doesn't make any sense, but you feel that there's some connection of feelings and it is a very emotional poem. I like it.

No, bit doesn't make any sense, but that's what makes it great. poems that make the writer happy are the best, but I haven't written one in a while. i love your writing.
