Preview of my debut chapbook “<3”

This is a preview of my debut chapbook titled “<3” now available on Amazon.

I Meant It

He told me not to leave;

I said I wasn’t going anywhere

anytime soon

and I meant it.

Without his vivacious singing and weird hairdos

that always make my day better,

without his sharp attention to details about people

that always manage to surprise me like

how he automatically can tell what vibe

a person casts whenever they enter the room,

without his words encouraging me to love myself,

without his company

I don’t laugh,

I don’t smile,

I don’t exist.

He told me not to leave;

I said I wasn’t going anywhere

anytime soon

and I meant it.

Orange

He is orange;

A mix of red, the color of love,

(the blood that rushes to my face

whenever I see him),

and yellow, the color of happiness

(the smiles and laughs I instantly receive

whenever he enters the room);

hints of blue, (the color of serenity,

the calming feeling I get

when I’m around him),

creating a deeper orange.

A deeper version of him

where his smiles and laughs are amplified--

where his puns excel

into the next realm,

where his words have the ability

to enchant the whole population

instead of just me;

A deeper, vibrant version

of him

would set the world on fire

from the warmth he casts--

would bewitch cities

with the magic of his words,

would turn villages upside down

with his laugh that would travel for miles.

A vibrant version of him would change the world;

I would know--

He already changed mine.

Just Him

I haven’t loved anyone else

as much as I’ve

loved

him
