i was taught that the somber sound of books
wasn’t used for study,
and now all i want
is to feel the weight of
all your words on me.

(because of you,)
i have a special
liking for libraries.

1am thoughts

If this nature of life be true,
there need no distinction between
the aliveanddead of affections.
For with chance,
those gone merely wait for their moment of return
back into being,
and lives prove no more of
an expandable substance than
mere thoughts of yesterday.

To fade and forget and fail (to recall)
only proves the inability of one to let go.
