True LoveTrue love is a crimson coat
That no one dares to wear.
It's talked about, and dreamed about,
But no one seems to care.
It stays locked in a wardrobe,
And seldom looked upon;
But no one dares to wear the coat
That only One has donned.
That One, they say, who wore the coat
Was often called a Son.
A son, by whom, the people say,
Victory o're death had won.
The coat had earned its color
By the blood that He had spilt.
But, died He not
How grass dies, or how roses wilt.
Who can match this sacrifice?
Who compare to this?
Can anyone amount to it
With just one simple kiss?
With just one hug, an "I love you";
An action, oh-so-trite.
Can any show a love that's true?
And don the coat, they might?
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
