Staying In Love

We’d reach across  galaxies if that’s what it took
Just to interlock hands and give each other the look
Just to smile at each other about our inside joke
To show love to each other we do the most
It doesn’t matter  how tired or how busy you always take time to tell me you miss me
I always have time to have your back
And I often imagine you kissing me
If it ever seems like I’m too distracted please don’t  have a bad reaction 
Please never stop reaching because every now and then I come undone
I’ll always grab your hand so we can walk this life together
You’ve been here all this time so I guess I can imagine forever

What I am What I should be

I’m always getting anxiety about the forces that be trying to make me something that I’m not
But what if what I’m not is what I should be?
I’m always dreaming of apostrophes and sometimes I think they own me
Almighty dollar is what’s wrong with me
Bill paying prolongs the disease
I chase the flicker of the green that comes from machines hoping to see more green outside my window
All I ever notice is the dim light of daybreak and before I know it, night has swallowed me
My body aches and becomes heavy hoping for rest but I am one of many weary ones
I can’t afford to sleep
I guiltily nap on my days off feeling as though I’m missing something that might pay off
I neglect family for homework due
I drag into work
I drag into school
People say stay encouraged
What else can I do?
I just keep on going
I choose not to choose
And should I fall into blissful sleep
I hope it’s not all in vain and I wake up to that which I seek
And I really hope I have become what I should be
