A Poem about a Girl

Dark and the quiet of comfort,
two minds, so different yet travelling together
and for a while all is settled.
Life stops rocking but my heart still beats.
We said romance is but a dream,
but this is better.
This is real.
I don’t know a lot,
I don’t know you yet,
I don’t know me yet,
and I don’t know us yet.
But I do know,
I want to.
Seven hours is a long time
but it goes by so quickly.


A poem about a nightclub

Tonight was both too long, and yet too short. 

I spent my night dancing with people I know so well and people I didn’t know at all. 

And all at one it occurred to me, you became clear, you were both of those people. 

Tonight brought many revaluations. 

I didn’t like this club. 

Nine pound was a lot of money for a night where you only know five songs. 

And I’m not as good as falling out of love as I thought. 

We are apart but too close. 

We are still not close enough. 

I see you, and I see everything. 

You dance differently, badly, but fantastic in every way to me. 

You smile. 

I smile. 

You look elsewhere, I dont know where I’m looking. 

The lights of the club highlight nothing but buried emotions. 

I look for anybody who can take my eye my eye away. 

No things working, my brain won’t pull itself away from you. 

I don’t t know what to do. 

I only know what I want to to do…….
