“little dandelion
let your heart keep time
now the clouds are gone
all of your tomorrows


walking in the rain

i walked
in the
rain wishing
i cried
my tears
away but
i knew
i was
not clever
enough to
disguise them
tears with
the rain.
I want to know you.
You seem like someone worth knowing.
Every day I feel like I’m surrounded by people with hard edges and sour faces but I get the sense that you’re different.
too often people seem to think
that they have answers to everything.
Their faces are trapped in permascowls and
they can’t be bothered with anything besides their narcissism.
You aren’t like that.
You still ask questions.
You’re still looking for the answers.
