“Nowadays,
all of my love poems
are for you.
Because phone calls and letters
so often fall short.
And hopping on a plane
isn’t an easy solution
to missing you suddenly
at 1 a.m.
Sometimes,
poetry
is the easiest way
to bring you here
beside me.”
Galaxies | Lora Mathis (via lora-mathis)

For you, Annie.

Wanda Sykes “Detachable Pussy”

Strip malls 
Winter in the fall
It happened so slow I barely noticed it at all
Blank tapes 
Try to stay awake
I’m running from the future but I can’t escape it

Heartaches

one last cup of joe before I go from
the thermos, yesterday’s coffee
strong 
black
dad made it, extra 
hot and I pour
it into the cbc regina
mug that mum won
at the folk fest

I toast a bagel 
sure to unplug the toaster after
and eat it plain

Last night I cried 
and he wrapped his arms around me 
told me everything was alright
told me everything was okay
it’s okay to be sad
it’s okay 
it’s alright

As she tugged on my eyes
she pulled on my hair
she sucked her thumb and wound her fingers in my tendrils
she said stay, stay with me and 
we’ll always be three, getting
cuddles from mum and 
hugs from dad and
we can even stay twenty-three 
with your sister, she’s getting
married, and you can be there
you can be the maid of honour to
stand up for all the years 
she stood up for you 
and we will be happy 

but the ticket’s already booked
and I’ve never been one to back out

even though it’s where I need to go
even through the time I want to
even though my heart has a home made
and the reason is even throughout

one more cup of coffee 
to ease the heartache
to ease the heartache 
to make it easy
on my heart

"Hopeful" Josh Ritter

How many times does the truth that you take to be true
Is just truth falling apart at the same speed as you
Until it all comes away in a million degrees
And you’re just a few pieces of fallin’ debris

And she’s hopeful. Hopeful. For me. 

"And as things fell apart, nobody paid much attention."
