I Wish to Bawl My Eyes Out

I wish I can bawl my eyes out
if that’s any use to you
alas these tears do not flow, for
they can’t flush away your grief

I wish to have the perfect words
that can make everything proper
alas the more love I pronounce, mere
shrill sounds proceed to your ear

Oh how I wish to move this mountain
one you deem impossible to climb
alas it’s this obstacle, that can
mount evidence of your might

For now I’ll simply be with you
lend you my ears and my heart
Til that moment arises, when
you can love you like I do

There’s No Way I Don’t Love You

There’s no way I don’t love you
From the way my bruised heart bleeds
Bricks sunk in my chest
But yearn for your ears

Love not romance, I miss
Optimism from our twenties
Plans to change the world
But never locked down

We’re here now years later
Anchored to different seas
Hope, dreams, nostalgia
I shall never be!
