You see Imperfections; I see a life lived

You don’t just stumble upon a perfect relationship.

You meet someone you can’t help but adore, whether mutually felt; they will teach you who you are based on their reflection of who they are with you.

Together, you’ll grow,

Together you wil continue to perfect something that can not be perfected.

An that’s is the beauty of two becoming us for a day or infinity;

Whether the relationship is undefined, defined or just in kind

[ – Finn Perkins]

I saw you today

I saw you today

I saw you today
It took me a monument
to realize it was you

Fresh as
If it was my first hello
Smooth
As water on a slip’n slide

I was back there
The days of
Simplicity and quiet gazes

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I’m enamored
by your ability to hold me
Without ever reaching out

Saddened by
Your ability
set a-fire to room
Your never intended
To be in

You never owned your
Dysfunction,
you collected
glitter an wore it as
Your charmed life
Rolled though me
Like a hurricane party
On nitro

You know
One day
You would be
Standing
In the place, that space
Only you would fill
Only you could fill

That day came
It was here
Before us
Playing out
Like it did
In my mind

No disappointment
No resentment
Oddly
It was joy

I saw you today,

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I saw you, today.

Minding my own Life

Good link

Humans depend on positive thinking

Just add glue (heart not included)

holidays they’ve come and gone
And the winter months keep you on my mind

Your not on my speed dial
Your not even in my contacts
Yet you’ve been in my recent calls for days
As They turn into weeks

Would I ever know you
The way she knew you
Could spring turn to summer
Without the mention of my name

Hard to know what’s to become of me
When all you see is the me
She could never be
As you became
The one she met
And the one I know

Can you tell me
Why you can not see
Change in you
Is because of me

Comfort
Intimacy
Choices
As It’s Hard to know what’ll become of me
When all you see is the me
She could never be
As you became
The one she met
And the one I know

Would I ever know you
The way she knew you
Could spring turn to summer
Without the mention of your name

You’re not on my speed dial
You’re not even in my contacts
Yet you’ve been in my recent calls for days
As They turn into weeks

Situational empathy

How do say I understand?,

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown woman

Raised Another, of Jewish Faith

and a passive Protestant  father

Given much

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss is prevalent

and knowing that lived

on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human

How do say I understand

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown mother

Raised by a Jewish Mother

Abandoned by a passive-emotion void father

Replace by excess

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss prevalent

and knowing that

living on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human
