Ophelia

Processed with VSCO with tech preset

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?
Tell me.

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.

August Music

20. August Playlist '17

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.

My favorites:
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!

Abigail’s August Playlist

8. August Playlist '16

Happy August! I usually am really excited about the start of a new month, but I have mixed feelings about it being August already. On one hand it’s exciting because fall is coming which means I can break pants and jackets back out, but then on the other it means that school is starting soon.

But without further ado, here are my favorites from this month’s playlist:
Hell Nos and Headphones by Hailee Steinfeld,
Poison by Luhx.,
and Technically Single by Tayler Buono.

Enjoy,
