daydreamers ENTER MIDNIGHT
  • I numbered all the reasons why I was better off without you 

    and you must have done something similar 

    since you just disappeared one day, no traces left 

    I thought I knew you well enough 

    you always came back 

    and I always opened my arms for you 

    still, this time I waited 

    and waited 

    and you didn’t come back 

    that’s when I numbered my reasons 

    not to miss you 

    not to cry over you 

    to be strong and proud enough 

    to not call you 

    but lately 

    The reasons why I miss you, I don’t even count them 

    I just know that we were not perfect

    but we were great together 

    two flawed individuals who liked each other 

    exactly how they were, exactly because we were we 

    and so, many months later, here I am 

    making love to your memory and not letting go 

    waking up crying because I dreamt of your embrace 

    I guess you don’t miss me. I gotta understand that. 

    Only problem is my heart doesn’t understand reasons 

    and I’m still here, waiting for your smile to come back to me

  • The saddest, loneliest moments of my life have, ironically, happened when amidst a crowd, I couldn’t find a soul I could relate to. Not one single soul that shared the tune of my heart.

  • I wonder if there’s a place outside this world where all the love we create is stored… When it is happy, it shines over us, but when it’s heartbroken, it rains down on us, so we all share its pain.

    Take me to the other side of the moon
    where no blue songs are sung
    and no lovers pledge their love to it

    Take me to the other side of the moon
    the one that’s oblivious to this world
    and cares for no grief because it knows nothing of it

    Take me there or anywhere uncharted
    one unbeknown to to heartbreak
    one whose flowers have never been watered with tears

    This feeling is so new and fresh
    just humor me and play my game
    let’s pretend we just invented love

    Maybe there, where there’s just you and me
    love is a garden that blooms year round
    Maybe there, in our alternate time and space
    new love always thrives and never forgets

    Take me to the other side of the moon
    and maybe there our hearts will be free
    to light up our world, unashamed, unbound, untainted.

  • I’m sorry. I don’t do one night stands.
    I need love and care and feelings to bare myself to anyone. For it’s not just my body is my soul I share… It’s not sex, it’s love I make.

  • Let me cup your heart in my hands 

    and let my heart sing sweet lullabies to your aches 

    let me show you how love truly is 

    and it’s not what they made you believe 

    Yes, many horrors have been made 

    in the name of love 

    but love is generous and kind 

    and giving and caring and free 

    Let me embrace your soul like a warm blanket 

    one you’ll be able to keep for your cold nights

    Let the memory of my kisses 

    overpower those gray ones 

    Let me love you. 

  • Deep in the black of the night I still think of you. I have 4am conversations with my heart and make pretend drunk calls to you. I’m not sorry you’re not here anymore, I’m sorry I still miss you.

  • If life gives you lemons, fuck the lemonade, make an amazing lemon cheese cake!

  • Sometimes it’s best to leave stories unfinished, circles whose ends never close… that way we can still wonder, deep in the dark of the night, what could have happened, or maybe it will just finally let us sleep.
