I know I love you.
I know you know it too,
but is it fair for us to hold on to what we once knew?
To continue writing a story that is undoubtedly hopeless?
To drive each other toward an improbable future?
For once I want you to tell me:
do we have any reason to stay?
Is there anything left to keep us here?
I believe we just have a lot to let go.
I know you love me,
but do you really love me?
Do you love me for how I think?
How I speak?
Do you care to know the depths of me
or just what’s on the surface?
I know what I want.
I want you to love me for how my mind works,
for how the gears turn and thoughts become art.
I want to spend time with your mind
and not just your body,
and I want you to want the same from me.
I know I love you,
but I am in a haze of knowing whether you love me
and I’m drowning.
Not knowing your intention is bane.
So do I go mad as Ophelia,
so be it,
for it would only be fitting.
Then, maybe, you would go bewildered
and play the part as Hamlet,
then I would know you whether meant it.
So I’ll submerge myself into you
or maybe into the depths of my loving you
and divide myself from my fair judgement.
I’ll forget there’s a way out.
Simply forget that I knew how to swim
and allow my body to linger in a pool of cool blue.
Look at me being right on time with posting!!!! I didn’t have any inspiration to make this playlist until two days ago, but sometimes the best playlists are born in the spur of a moment. Never the less, I am proud of how this one turned out.
Do You – Spoon
What You Know – Two Door Cinema Club
The Less I Know The Better – Tame Impala
I Can’t Control Myself – Strange Names
(and OBVIOUSLY any song by Flor) but I feel like at this point, that’s a given so it can go unspoken.
ALSO: Keep an eye out for a new poem post this month!
Well … better late than never, am I right?
My favorites this month are extensive:
Where do you go? – Flor
Unsaid – Flor
Million Bucks – Smallpools
Trip Switch – Nothing but Thieves
and 2U – David Guetta & JB
My favorite band just released their first ever album and I am over the moon about it!! I have included more than one of their songs on this playlist as well as many other playlists in the past! I am linking their Spotify page here and I also want to include their band homepage here as well. I hope you love them as much as I do! (Help me convince them to come play in D.C.!!!!)
And as always, my Spotify playlist:
June favs :
- Elevator Operator – Courtney Barnett
- She’s Electric – Oasis
- Mess Around – Cage The Elephant
These were really different, but I really liked them 🙂
This playlist is inspired by my mom and dad. But honestly… who doesn’t like “good music”? The playlist is ordered from earliest release to most current!
American Pie by Don McLean (for my girls & dad)
Hold On Loosely by 38 Special
and Livin’ On A Prayer by Bon Jovi
They’re truly all my favorites.. 🙂
