A Short List Of The Things We Know

Folder: 
2020

Once upon a time

my words fell apart

and told me I had nothing else to give.

 

Once upon a time

I believed them.

 

Telling, isn’t it,

the things we know when they are finally written down.

 

So I guess

I only write down what I know

and not what is true.

 

I will write you down until you don’t seem like truth

but you are still here

something I can touch

and mold into something that doesn’t look like a lie.

 

So here is a short list

of the things we know:

 

sometimes I don’t deserve you.

 

I can see the rain before the storm starts.

 

I can’t always see you.

 

When I see you there is something in your eyes

I might break again.

 

I will not do everything right.

 

I will do most things wrong.

I bleed when you get cut

and I can’t stop the slide.

 

I am sure I have never seen perfect

but your hand in mine

is as close as I have ever felt.

 

I will not be everything you need.

 

But I will try to be the moon if it feels like the sun won’t rise

and I wish for you every morning.

 

I love you.

 

You are first on the list

of the things I think I know.

 

I only hope I’m right.
