Samuel Guest

Cherophobia

i fought against love until we both lost

it terrified me to think about what would
have happened if you had swept me away

 
Wet Flowers

there are few
things as romantic
as wet flower bulbs
drooping after the rain

little droplets sliding gracefully
down each stem

falling to the ground without making a sound

 
Between the Clouds

darling
you are what i hold deep in
my broken soul

i want to get rid of this fog
so i can treat you right

we can grow wings together

take me between the clouds
where we can survive off
the undying blue in the sky
