thoughts on a jump rope
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
My tongue becomes tangled
And i am not sorry.
A fragile face once cut my palms
And watched me
Watch them bleed
And that has nothing to do with anyone
As I step into a stride
I think they carry grace,
Though how does another broken heart see beyond my face.
While the light connects from one corner of your eye,
To the other.
Like the stars in a night sky
Breaking through the surge of sadness,
Or the heat breaking through winter
When time comes for May.
They spill secrets slowly,
For those who care to listen only,
And so when I say I don’t need you
Please open your heart to connect it with your mind to understand that;
Does not mean I won't bleed for you.
When my eyes land on you,
Past your charms and dreams
Everything that is waiting to burst through the seams
Looks similar to me.
But beating for the same reason it always has,
So I’ll ask,
Do you love you
And i mean like love you
Do you listen to you like a night scene cafe listens to jazz,
Leaning in on the soft beat
For a little bit of stability,
To truly be moved by the bold tunes,
Our bodies connected to mind and spirit,
Somehow just know how to move.
Two minds up in space,
Yet when I look at you,
Time does not exist.
So how did this happen to become
Or speeding up as
I throw a penny into a fountain
And wish for enlightenment,
I wish you the best
There is a tormenting sound echoing from inside of my chest
There is a fight within it,
Is solely set on the motion of
That coin entering without hesitancy,
But what they never tell us is
to listen closely in on what the world whips around while the stars in our eyes are set on the clouds
that rain down
On self doubt wreaking havoc,
Our dreams coming true,
Hidden in shades of blue
But sometimes only the heart and wish remain true,
While other echoes within other chests are pounding to be heard.
I promise I heard you.
I promise to hear you.
And I will keep on,
Singing my own optimistic song
That allows melancholy to tag along.
