got me in the mood

you’ve got me in the mood 
to cry, let these tears flow
without consequence
never good enough 
“come on baby. just like this.
i know you want to”
you’ve got me in the mood
to throw away everything
i’ve become 
never good enough
“why are you being so dramatic?
just live a little”
you’ve got me in the mood 
to lose myself
“baby who are you fooling?
you’ve never found yourself
in the first place”
you’ve got me in the mood
to believe everything
you believe of me.

never goodbye, just a smell ya later

when i was five
kindergarten kid 
you were my cool
amazing all star
sister. 
stars in eyes
some called it
when i thirteen
fresh meat grade eight
you were my hot
popular, “hey have you
met my baby sis” 
sister.
my protector, my guidance.
concealed poorly
is my admiration,
respect i have
for you, my sister.
years continued and faded
suddenly no longer 
was i the baby sister
but an equal
you depended on me
let me carry you
when your five inch
stilettos busted
metaphorical or not,
let me wipe away pain
inflected by those who never
mattered. 
so i won’t shed tears
(or try not to)
because this isn’t goodbye
it never is.
it’s a 
“you better have a
grey goose martini ready.”
here’s to you,
my beautiful all star amazing 
sister.

give in

it’s past one in the morning
yet here we are
eyes wide and sharp
on each other
yours look a little weary
but you won’t give in
until I have too
so we stare
darkness surrounding 
the edges of your jaw
the roundness of your cheeks
it would be easy to
push
the lines of my lips to yours
but I won’t give in
until you have too

the people we love
the most
are flawed inconceivably
the most
yet we are blinded
by our love for them
we do not recognize
the pain they inflict
on our now toughened skin
