Reminiscing

I wear my heart on my sleeve
You see, I’ve learned through
Lifes’ many lessons
To not be afraid when matters of the heart arise
I think of you and I can’t help
But to feel this yearning
This thirst which can only be quenched
By your soft, supple lips
Pressed against mine

I had a dream of you last night
But, it’s slowly slipping away
And it sucks, because it’s the only way
Left of holding you anymore
We said we’d be friends
But, you see when I learned to wear my heart
On my sleeve I lost the ability
To hide behind masks of bravado and hipsterdom
These feelings for you are not friendly

I played it cool and said
“Life is not a series of coincidences,
But rather destiny at play.”
And here’s the thing
I believe that, truly I do
But, sometimes it seems destiny
Has a way of prolonging the inevitable
And all I want to do
Is tell you to let go and just be real with me

I just want to remind you
That the last time we kissed
Was after I brought out your trust issues
Which are always sitting there at the surface
You thought ignoring my messages was
The best way of dealing with us
But, I called you out on your bullshit
I just want to remind you
That you were the one who leaned over to the driver’s side
And kissed me

I wasn’t expecting it, truly
You proved to me
That the calm collected
Image you put out there
Was nothing more than that
An image
I stand by what I said
I scare you
I bring out something you aren’t even ready
To admit to yourself

You said that I make you feel
Safer when we’re together
But, then
You also said
To find you when you’re 28,
Because you were too young for all this
Well, since we’re good at calling out BS when we see it
Let’s go ahead and do that here as well.
…….Bullshit
Damn, I just want you to open up
On your own . . .for once

I wrote this awhile back and just now was wanting to get these thoughts out. I stand by what I wrote then, I hope it reaches the right heart…and if not, well, life is a learning process, right? Everything in its own time.

If you are too patient with people you risk putting your own life on hold for someone who can’t even have the gall to say what they feel.
