Eupompha

i pray
that you have the strength
to destroy the fear
that forces you to stay
when your heart whispers
for you
to leave.

Photinus

darling,
you can’t expect someone
to spend forever with you
when you can’t even spend a day
for yourself
first.

Scarabaeus

we were really fighting
against time,
weren’t we?

every passing day
hours closer,
to the line drawn by powers
unseen.

the briefest moment
spent together–
an eternity
in my heart.

Alaus

a soft
and quiet river
makes its way
through the mountain
just as effortlessly
as the roaring fire.

Phanaeus

it’s quite strange
really.
we haven’t spoken a word
in months
and yet
my heart talks to you
every day.

so full of you
my heart has become
that i cannot even say
it is mine anymore.

~lt

Chrysochus

i think that’s all i really want;
an open night sky,
twinkling string lights,
bare feet on a wooden porch,
slow dancing with you
with Tennessee Whiskey
playing out over the lake.
i don’t need money
or power;
just a little corner of the world
that’s mine to share
with you.

Calosoma

you made the stars
a little brighter,
the sun
a bit warmer,
the booze a bit harder
and these long, lonely nights
a little more long
and lonely.

~lt


Cotinus

to be honest,
you occupy my mind
more than you probably should.
i wish it was something i could help
but
when this world gets cruel
and terrible,
all of me,
heart
soul
and mind
drift back
to when all we could think of
was a future
in which we didn’t have to be apart.

but oh,
this world
can be so cruel
and terrible.
