nickole's poem for sean

&superman's here to save you
to take you up, up and away.
fix all your probems,
bbydoll, unlike the others,
maybe he wont run away.
Super human strength make him capable
of handling all your stress,
Always able to handle your pressure.
Best friends forever means forever,
Even if millions of miles seperate you.
Holding hands, fingers intertwined,
Together we'll take on the world,
Together we can fly away.
Leave behind the acid and the drugs
Leave behind the people that judge,
Just me and you together,
Best friends til the end.

inhaling thrills through 20 dollar bills

go ahead
take your clothes off.
because apparently that's all your worth.
oh, and those drugs you're consuming?
go ahead and shovel them down your throat until you feel nothing
you're changing
but why?
we both know that you are better than clothes on the floor.
better that the shit you inhale to make you "feel better"
it breaks my heart knowing that you are doing what you were so strongly against.
nice job, hypocrite
now every word that falls out of your mouth means nothing.

I'd write you a dictionary to verbalize your brilliance

Do you remember when we met?
I do.

I was fifteen. Young, aspiring.

You were bold, and seemingly fearless.
And over time, i've grown to make realizations of you and all your worth.

You once created fireflies in my eyes, years upon years ago. They lit up my face with a glow that was more than empowering. I felt alive.

If I could vebalize just how amazing you are and have been to me, we'd be here a long, long time.

I have tried. But relentlessly, I feel like I have failed. I'd have to create new words for proof, but i'm not sure if it is time for that.

The fireflies are gone, but my eyes still get a dim glimmer when I speak to or of you.

I'd dedicate my written dictionary to you and hope that I could make you feel as important as you did to me when you woke up at 3 a.m. every morning to leave me those 'have a great day' voicemails.

Three years have flown by us, haven't they? But I still admire you.

Thanks to Brandi for writing this for me.
