The Heavy Crown

After all this time I still wonder what you think about before you lay your head down at night.

The Heavy Crown

Every time my mind wanders, my chest starts to burn

I can't hide it anymore, I bury it deep but it stills pokes out from the grave we made

My eyes are filled with tears

I haven't felt this way in years

I'm so scared to say what's going through my head because I'm scared of the thoughts too.

Why did things go south? I didn't know feelings could migrate so quickly, it feels like yours left early for the winter and I'm still living in spring

It's beautiful here, but I can feel your absence and it's a hole that can't be filled by drinking or fever dreaming

All I can do is keep on thinking -

Of all the time we spent staring at each other

Like looking away would break the progress we've made and you'd run like you always do

Maybe I should follow in suite, but it feels like I don't have a clue about you

After all this time I still wonder what you think about before you lay your head down at night

What do you think about when you see me? Can you feel how deeply I miss you, or how scared I am of losing you completely?

I want the happiness I felt with you in my arms. I miss the warmth from your smile, I miss going the extra mile.

You're worth every step.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
