silent love




they asked me what i thought of love
and i said i didn't think much of it at all.
that word.
that word that means so little to a poetess.

for i have spun one hundred lovely tales
and each of them contained the word so many times
that i was
sick with it.

so please, don't tell me that you love me.

help me across the river and tell me why you love the stars.
laugh until you're afraid you'll break.
and if you need to
don't say anything at all.

because i promise
in every moment that you turn those eyes on me
i will know what you really mean.

though i stay silent.



p.s. sappy poems are my jam.
p.p.s how can summer be over already?

    Also I love your blog's new look! (I just now came and noticed it, though it could've been up for awhile. I'm an inattentive scrub) It's so beauteous.

  8. THIS IS MAH JAM JAM JAMMITY JAM. sorry. got carried away.

    somehow i feel like this is sent to me. and it...was good.

    *cackles evilly because i'm about to break the rules*

    I LOVE THIS POST.

    *so evil because i used the word love muahahah*

    p.s. i bet every single person loves sappy poems, though they won't admit it. *glance at Red from Half-Moon Investigations and Thomas from camp* XD

    p.p.s. summer is not over until the bearded lady shaves her back...or until work camp is over. then we can cry at our loss and embrace autumn with open arms.

  15. yes oh holy mackerel yes.
    the term 'i love you' means little in my mind. it is overused and careless and like a breath in a howling gale. but to be there and to show that love, speaks louder, oh so louder than any phrase.

  17. sappy? SAPPY?
    um, okay, let's break it down. in this world of approximately seven billion people i'm sure over half would say sappiness is disgusting and yadda yadda...BUT. deep deep down in every person's heart, there's this place that finds a little tingling joy for sappiness.
    SO JAM ON.
    anyways, this was beautiful. <3 too beautiful that the english language doesn't have the right words to describe the beauty.
