vulnerability is a scary thing
but sleeping at last never fails to soothe me
listen to the great conjunction

All the Ways

January 30, 2021



Heart pounds
Breath quickens
Thoughts tangle
And you're not even in the room

Head spins
Body tingles
Focus blurs
And you're not even in the room

Pulse jumps
Hands shake
Passion quakes
And you're not even in the room

Anticipation waits
Desire awakes
Soul aches
For you

You don't know you do this to me 
You don't see the secrets I keep
You don't know all the ways I ache

I don't understand how much I want you
I don't know what I want to do
I don't like all the ways I ache for you
Will probably become a song.

    Re: The Scholastics Art and Writing competition is a huge competition for youth in the US. People compete on a regional level for gold and silver keys, and gold keys are judged on a national level.
    Here's their website.
    You should totally enter next year if you're interested.
