It wasn’t about finding myself as I’ve been here all along. It was about understanding myself.
took, broke and baked in everything
although insides were solid of steel
beams were broken, now extended
life was all and far from nothing
his touch led, it felt
it brought another year
a twist and feature
his chills ran theaters
a smile for crazy and love with past insanity
once broken, now calm and solid
a love will never die as it holds till the end of time
distance creates, we find fate in sultry
fairytale of once, how hands caressed the sun
but time tells and we all stumble down stairs
it was once upon a time
back in the year
when my heart was set on the sun
I’ve never had a New Year’s resolution as I act in the moment and don’t depend on future possibilities.
It was never about sex. It was about our bodies embracing one another and our souls becoming intertwined in warmth and devotion.
I am not just, I overcome and become. I transcend into a being of past meets present. Life experience created who I am at this moment in time.
the grace for his ghost
how he’d taste till he’d roast
not one to ask, one to know
the way you’re supposed to close a hole
perhaps i climb and please when i shouldn’t
but he used words when he couldn’t
said he would when he wouldn’t
threw and spoke, used words without knees
not one to bask in the pain of another
i’ll dwell and ask myself, but laugh because well
we know i use words that i shouldn’t
emotions like i’m the bullet
but a shot can only go so far
arms can only feel so warm
his hair will soon gray
i’ll remember the day and our stumble
the “maybe one day,” but here, in this moment
i’d rather live for now than before and not a revolving door
words by dominic riccitello
We were forever and always. My love for you being forever, while the child in you is always.
All I needed was an intense feeling of affection to bring me in from the cold.
I’m not as crazy as I used to be, thankfully.
It was the night before Christmas and all I wanted was to no longer feel haunted.
