i’ve been away for a while
i can’t tell if it’s because i’ve fallen in love
fallen out of touch
or simply fallen

hopefully more posts are coming soon

I whisper your name
Like gospel, your heartbeat is
The pulse of our hymn.

Isn’t there something
Tragically beautiful in
Just one last embrace?

My feeble tongue speaks;
But they’re not words, rather the
Lyrics of love’s song.

ThreeWordParadox 200 Follower Giveaway!

I can’t believe 200 of you follow me and want to read my shitty poetry. I know it’s not a huge number, but I honestly expected a grand total of 5 followers here so it’s truly an honor. 

To thank you all for following me, but because I don’t have real money to buy giveaway prizes with (struggling student, etc. etc.), I’d like to do something that more closely aligns with this blog. I’d like to make a personalized poem (most likely courier series or handwritten) for the winner of the giveaway. We can message back and forth a couple times to figure out something you’d like and then I’ll whip something up, throw it in a frame and ship it off to you. I’ll do up to five of these poems, depending on people’s interest.

The rules are as follows:

  • You don’t need to be following me (though, since this is a follower giveaway, it would be nice if you did);
  • Both likes and reblogs count, but only one reblog (don’t be that guy/gal and spam your followers);
  • Winners will be chosen randomly and will be notified via tumblr—please have your inbox open!
  • If you are a winner, you must be willing to divulge a valid postal or P.O. box address (willing to ship globally);
  • I’ll keep the giveaway open, at least initially, for two and a half weeks, give or take. That means the contest will close and winners will be chosen on midnight on April 25, 2014 (may extend deadline as interest allows).

Again, thank you all so much for following me. I hope you take advantage of this (and that the personalized poem isn’t so completely stupid that no one wants it) because I’m really excited about it!

While you were not mine,
I let myself become yours;
Now I can’t break free.

Shall we lie in the
Grass and let the spinning world
Carry us to sleep?
e. olson
Tonight I will melt
Into the folds of your arms
And your lips’ creases.
e. olson
my biggest regret is not being born with lips destined to kiss yours.
