NaPoWriMo Day 11/30

4/11/15 1:23 pm but it's not tomorrow until I go to sleep today

I promise to keep your secret
The one that you won't tell
Though it slips along words we share
I'm your friend
It's what I do
And a soon as I figure out what it is you're scared of
I'll keep that secret too

NaPoWriMo Day 22 (x3) / 30

I missed Day 21 but I'm pretty sure I made up for it...

4/22/15 6:40am, standing on the train trying to put this into words

How to describe to someone
Who's never loved like this before
That the obligation of living for You
Is my fondest wish
Even when I fail
That the bonds of love
Make me want to try again
There's no obligation at all


4/22/15 7:15pm, I don't think I've ever put it in so many words before

Dear Friend
We've disagreed on so many things

Our friendship started with a fight

In some ways
On very important things
We'll never see eye to eye

And yet
And yet

For all that you are
And all the words we've let loose
For tolerances
And unheard patience
For trusts
And confidences

All that I am
Loves all of you
Dear Friend


4/22/15 7:20pm, euphoria sometimes leads to introspection

Maybe I don't value all the things you've been to me
And that's why I can't write about anything
Except failure

Or maybe you've meant so much of everything
That failure is too strange
Not to remark upon

NaPoWriMo Day 12/30

4/12/15 10:00 am, I've said it now I'll have to do it

I'll gather together all the things I've written
About you
All bundled and sorted
I'll put the depth of my regard
Into your hands

(Inspired by a friend of mine who is also participating.)

NaPoWriMo Day 20/30

4/21/15 12:29am, looking back I realized something

Little Brother
This, apparently
Is the time of year
When I go looking
For you

Tell me
Little Brother
When is the time of year
When you can be found

NaPoWriMo Day 19/30

4/19/15, 11:40pm neither stupid nor crazy, there's a reason I write this one a lot

I always wondered what it would take
To make me one of your
Revisionist projects
To write me out
To recast me
As a villianness
Hiding in our [your] own midst
I've seen you do it before
When there were no witnesses
To contradict the new tale you present
(None but me at least)
And I always think the same thing
Are you lying now
Or were you lying to me then
