6 Spoken Word Quotes On Love


“Just so you know, my weird mind wanders, and my brave heart breaks. 
I’ve nailed some milestones, but I make mistakes. Because I’ve got more faults than a map of California earthquakes.

 Wake me if you like me, wake me if you want me.
 Wake me if you need another poem.
 Your once and future lover has made himself at home.”

“Seems pretty simple.
You wanna get your teeth cleaned for free? 
Date a dentist. 
New addition on the house?

-Rives, Dirty Talk

“She told me that she shouldn’t have let me get so attached to her; that this whole thing was a mistake, but, how can it be a mistake that I don’t have to wash my hands after I touched her?

I can’t – I can’t go out and find someone new because I always think of her. 
Usually, when I obsess over things, I see germs sneaking into my skin. 
I see myself crushed by an endless succession of cars…
And she was the first beautiful thing I ever got stuck on.”

“Can I offer you a penny for your thoughts?
 As a matter of fact, how about three?
 One penny for you, one penny for me,
 and one penny for our minds engaged not so sexually. 
Getting intimately closer as we approach the
 climatic altitude of nude, mental, sensational… conversation. Because I’m trying to get to know everything about you, 
from the neck…up.”

-Gemineye, Penny for Your Thoughts

“On stained leather interior dank with the smell of expectations 
I traded integrity for security and called it love.”
