Naked Tree

My soul is restless tonight,
Shaking like a naked tree,
In the winter.
Probably because there’s cold left over in my bones,
From the last time we said goodbye.

Patience

I can’t tell you,
I’ve got holes in my soul,
The size of canyons,
because it’s not fair of me to expect you to fill them up,
But my god,
What I’d do to hear the sound of your voice echoing through them.

One Sided

I want to curl up on the couch with you,
And watch all your favorite movies,
Because I love the way you love them.
I want our memories to be the most beautiful things you’ve ever watched.

Unlocked

I still leave the door unlocked for you,
Even though I know,
Deep down,
You’ll never walk through it.

Worn

The skin of my knee covered by frayed threads,
Barely hanging on.
You’ve left me hanging for months,
The occasional taste of you,
Keeping the edges of these wounds closed.

Jacket

I had wrapped his body around me like a jacket,
Hoping I could pretend his warmth was the heat radiating off your skin.
