"Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare."

If you want the truth,
I am completely
terrified you will just walk
out of my life,
because the doors
I opened for you
are also an exit.

I know I am
disconnected while
speaking on the phone.
it’s just that I feel heavy,
like the ocean, and
sometimes I want to swim
even though I know I can’t;
But I’d sure like to try.

And I know no matter
how many times the tide
drifts away, it will always
come back to kiss the shore;
but I am afraid, I am not
the tide, and you are not
the shore.
