There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how

For a Better Man

We're both better than this. 

We're capable of love.

We're capable of giving our heads

And not just our hands.


We're not just two bodies

Eight limbs entwined

In the confines of four walls

We're not just hi-hellos

Interspersed with emoticons


Let's be better than this.

Let's be better versions 

Of our text msgs

More full forms

More late night conversations

More naps on your shoulder...


And until we can be more

Let's be less

Not disappear

Just confess

That we can't be more to each other

Without being less to the other.


That's if you really want to be more to me

I know you've been hurt more than me

I can see you cower to protect yourself

But we both know you deserve better than this.

This is an honest catharsis of someone who is growing and wantimg more out of life. It feels as if you have poured your heart out, willing to gamble for something better. I like it very much.
