beautiful things

i never understand you

you make me angry

smile, laugh

you’ve made me cry

this is typical

predictably maudlin

but it hurts me

to know and not

to know you

you’re perfectly ridiculous

but make perfect sense

and nonsense

i love you madly


but it’s love all the same

you can kill with your eyes

i’ve died before

in the land

where conjunctions

hang in the air

between two people

where blue waters

meet the woods

that’s where i get lost

trying to find you
