“I may not always love you”



The Beach Boys played at 3pm

on your birthday; while I was

sitting at Veritas writing;  



the grad house named

from the Latin truth

uniformed by black

shirts with gold writing


in vino veritas

there is truth in wine

like the night after Vinny’s

my drunken confessions

about happiness with you

or the date over blues fest

all the laughter; the kisses


when you look for us

I hope that you look here

In the truths beneath the wine

In the moments brought by the

silencing of our fears and insecurities

When you look for us, look here

This hit me like a wave when I wasn't looking. I have to be honest and say that I am envious of this, I wish that I had of been able to write this way and say those words. You are so refreshing and so amazing. I hope someday we can share a bottle of wine and maybe write together. How awesome would that be??

"It is a terrible thing to be so open. It is as if my heart put on a face and walked into the world" -- Sylvia Plath.

I have bene feeling defeated as a writer these days, really being hard on myself for not being able to get the words out, and back-lashing on old poems that just don't live up to my new standards! I needed these words so much right now! Thank you my love!


I often feel you are that poet for me, I read your work and say "I wish I could write like that" .... so you are that poem, maybe not for yourself or in your own perception of your poetry, you are tht poet for others!


AND OMG YES! That would be amazing! we have got to make that happen! It would be so fun to hang out and write poetry together!


<3 thank you for showing me another way to view my own words! I need that so bad today!

Much Love
