A Fractured Mirror

If I were a poker player,
you would be the
last hand I play,
where I go
all in
for.

Hey guys! I’m so sorry for not posting in awhile, words are harder to come now…I’m happy. I truly am; it’s been awhile since I felt that way, but I’m happy and sometimes…sometimes, whenever I’m with her, I’m giddy…when I hold her in my arms, or put my arm around her, or cover her hand in mine, I feel at the top of the world…So yeah, sorry for not posting as much; I feel as if my words flow more freely with my sadness, as that is how most of my writing’s been- I’ll try to post a bit more from now on- have a great night!

- E.S.

Before you,
I craved sleep
to dream of just
one night with you.
Now,
I lay next to you
unable to sleep,
for fear of waking up
from the dream this
must be…

this is it."

I refrain from adding
anything to the end of
“I love you” when
I say it to you,
because “very much”
and “so much”
only detract meaning
from those three words.
Three words are
all I need to tell you
that I love you more
than anything extra words
can tell you.

"I love you."

And that is all.
"Nobody loves you
like I do."

Sometimes it’s
impossible to
fall in love if
you’re too worried
about how you’re
going to land.

Love is a war fought upon
battlefields scattered with
shorn hearts,
broken promises,
abandoned hands,
with more casualties
than stitches can sew
on a heart torn apart
by the endless rage of battle.

But you…
you’re worth the fight.

"If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second."
