The moment you realize
The world doesn’t revolve
Around the sun:
It revolves around you.

Thinking About You

Once I loved you like
My best enemy

Soon I’ll love you like
Somebody I never knew

Already I love you
Less than strangers

You have the kind of smile
That makes blush blush
Your lips are as soft as
The petals of my heart (She loves me? She loves me not?)
Your eyes are like
A sunrise of dreams
And your curves are
The steps to  lust love forever  more

What You Make Me Wish For

You make me wish
The world were flat
And you were sailing
In a boat toward its end

I wished we’d never said hello
Because our meeting
Descended me to the lows
Of hell

Stretch your heart
So I can fit inside

By Benjamin Grossman and Christopher Rupley

Let’s dance in the rancid rain,
the memories of what happened
when she left that day,
and waltz upon the mezzanine,
the hollowed ground that
was the only land for me

I know we don’t need the past
in order to be struck by the beauty of stars,
but it takes reasonable amounts of time to forget,
even if time is never reasonable to our wants

It often chides us,
reminding us that it is in the
driver seat,
the lavish control room of
potential for all our desires,
losses,
victories and shame

And when we turn back
the clock’s hands
you still don’t freeze, you still don’t dance,
you still don’t stay …

you don’t even remember my name
