but also

i am not a wounded animal
i am not easily tamed
i flourish with this season
(so love me properly)

i am young
too young to settle for less
than this magnificent spring day
than love that wears me well

patience is not permanence and
i do not settle down where
i do not feel wanted

patience is not permanence but
i want to settle down with you
and i want to feel wanted

i want to
put on my best dress
drink white wine by the river
hold your face in my hands
feel appreciated
feel deserving of it

i want you to
stop firing shots and
claiming to think
the safety was on
when we both know
you’re lying

i am not a wounded animal
i am not easily tamed
i flourish with this season
(so love me properly)

sentiments

the sentiments are all the same
but there was a time when
i didn’t feel that my breaking point
was a curiosity of yours

the sentiments are all the same
but there was a time when
i didn’t have to reassemble myself
on a regular basis

the sentiments are all the same
and i guess that’s
what matters

not quite finished

i do not like to be vulnerable

you can justify anything

i am so god damn tired of
having to tell myself i am okay

intentionally or not,
everyone is a vulture and
i seem to be rotting in the desert

sometimes it’s not about being right
sometimes it’s about being nice

!!!

sometimes it’s not about being right
sometimes it’s about being nice

serve justice for breakfast
watch my face drop
it’s what you wanted

i was crying before and
i feel like crying again

i need a friend but all the dynamics
are ominous

i’m not sure why the sun even
bothered coming out today

YEAH I’M HUMAN
YEAH IT HURTS

new diplomat

hello, new diplomat

overwhelmed with
a plethora of somber sentiments
cowering under your
partially transparent umbrella
being bad at
communicating the parts that
aren’t weightless
and wishing someone would
make you feel loved
but not wanting to have to
ask for it

hello, new diplomat

new age

you’ll make the drive

i’m not sure what you’ll make it into
or out of, though

fyi, there is nothing sexy about
outdated technology

but this isn’t really about you and
it never really was

i’ll make the effort

i am not lonely
i am not lonely
i am not lonely

ancient illusion

a colourful collage of days past

you can take the same adventure twice
in different company

i am not sure i believe myself
to have been born before
but sometimes i catch a
sparkle of ancient
illusion
