Head to Amazon now to grab your copy!
My fourth collection will be released May 12th, 2021!
I ended up changing the cover again but I think this time we really got it! I’m debating doing a free giveaway of 3 copies but I’m not sure what the interest level is there?
You’re sleeping and I don’t want to wake you
but I need to tell you that I love you
so I’ll trace the letters on to your skin
and hope it sinks into your heart.
If you are tired
Let me lay you down
My hands will murmur soft lullabies
into your hair.
If my feet grow weak
You can carry me.
If the wind and the rain
make you shiver
I’ll shelter you from any storm.
And I’ll be there for you
as you are there for me.
Paying in kisses and gentle words
Take from me as often as you give.
Insecurity and doubt are monsters
that live in my head.
I introduced you to them last night in bed
Are there any alarms going off inside your head
that think I’m just a different brand of crazy?
An apology scraps the inside of my mouth
but the monsters push another imaginary issue forward.
My naive heart has been betrayed and lied to
and as a last line of defense,
I will accuse you of doing the same.
I must trust you to not slice open
this vulnerable heart if we’re going to last.
I wonder if she enjoys being in your arms as much as I did
Does she know how good she has it?
Does she adore you as well as I did?
I never tasted lips so sweet before
Does she feel the same
Or are you somehow playing for second place?
She has thousands more nights by your side
Does she know what I would give for just one more?
I hope she treasures you
I hope she doesn’t take for granted
What was so precious to me.
I wear your t shirt to bed.
Let all the memories of you
Fill my head.
I dream up fantasies of what we could be
We’re probably not even right for each other
but aren’t you dying to try?
Don’t you want to see if we can reach the sky?
I love you from afar
because up close I start to see
too many cracks
It’s so easy to love things
that are light and pretty
It’s so hard to stop myself
from running when it gets
heavy and dark.
I’m driving down the road
that would bring me to your house
if I reached the end
But I turn right
like I have the last few months
Wishing I could forget you
and the way to your house.
I don’t think this is going to work.
Because you are you
and we are us.
And we don’t work as well together as I had hoped.
Because you can’t decide on what you want
and I deserve someone who is sure about me.
She’s the type of girl you still think about six months later
after she’s fought for you
after you cancel on her for the fifth time
after you’ve taken her for granted.
when you can’t find anyone else who wants to take care of you
when no one cares to hear about that song you dance to in the car
when you can’t find anyone else to stand up as your advocate as you tear yourself down.
She’s the type of girl you never thought would leave
so you treated her that way and funny enough that’s the reason she left.
And now your sorry ass can’t stop thinking of way to get her back.
We are not a love story
and we are not a lesson.
We were just two people wasting time.
Comfortable in the in -between
hiding from our truths.
You didn’t love me
and I didn’t want to love you
