Too Soon? 

​I don’t believe in Society’s implied time to go through stages. The biggest reason I’m marrying you “so fast” is because I’m certain. I’m certain that I love you with all of me. I’m certain that you know it. I’m certain that each and every morning, your face is the one that I want to wake up to. I’m certain that when things are going bad for me, you’re the person that I want in my corner picking me up and motivating me. I’m certain that I can give you the physical, mental, and emotional support that you may need from time to time. I’m certain that I want to start the rest of my life with you as soon as possible.

Effect on Me

There’s two sides to me

Sometimes three

The one that everyone knows

Is the protector of the other

The one who loves hard 

Too much

Because the world doesn’t go easy

On hopeless romantics 

So I save him for when he’s needed

Right now

There’s nothing to protect him

From the love he feels

Because even the protector 

Is in love with her

And she’s gone

Impact

Imagine an immense boulder

Rolling down a hill

As every second passes

It gets faster

The force behind it stronger 

At the foot of the hill

Waits a wall

And this boulder crashed into it

That’s the impact that I felt

When she walked onto that plane

The love that we fell into

Was moving at lightning speed

Halted suddenly 

Now we’re apart

And it’s going to be hard

But we can do it

No matter what 

Broken Eyes

My eyes must be broken

Leaking for so long

Just from a couple thoughts

I don’t want you to go

What am I going to do

Without you 

My eyes are broken 

They already long to see you

All the things about you

That gave them life 

My heart is broken

I feel it 

I know it

I’m going to miss you

Beyond my ability to describe 

Hurry up and come back

Fix my heart 

And my eyes

A “Man”

Someone asked me if I was soft

Because I missed my fiancé 

I guess I have to be

If that’s what being soft means

We can’t love anymore 

Without someone trying to bring us down

Then we wonder why

There’s so little real love around

So call me soft all you want

I’m not going to jeopardize her happiness 

To save my reputation in the eyes

Of people who don’t understand 

What it takes to love
