kilo verse

at first
it's like scripted ink
weighing more than spoken words
unable to surface the tension 
of this kilo verse

at first 
it comes with the tide
silence filling footprints side by side
your halo veils the 
crashing of the night

at first 
it's like the moon
holding the body of the ocean
twirling exuberantly on the surface
a thousand years intertwined

it starts with a kilo verse
that starts with time
and dances to the beat of silence
beginning when your footprints 
are next to mine.

what does it take

does it take a messy bun,
strands of hair escaping like
the bottoms of baggy jeans
I guess I better replace the skinny ones...

does it take a smile
every time
to make you "feel better"
that I'm alright...

I'm alright.
I don't need your validity
a flower does its best
to bloom despite humidity

but what exactly does it take
to bloom
when the pressure of the weather
is put on the structure of a flower ?

Everything.
(Except you.)
