I look up at the sky
So blissful and dark
Filled with an ocean of stars
Because I have a sliver of hope
That even tho you live thousands of miles away
You're looking at the same star I am
And smiling, the same way.
Your smile, a crescent moon
That gives me guidance at night
Your eyes, a forest
That I get lost in
You, an angel sent down from the heavens
To mend, heal, and protect me
My life is not complete
And nothing can compete
With the love, you give to me
I am glass
till I crack
Then I shatter
don’t be fooled though
For even when I’m shattered
I’m still strong enough to hurt you
For when I shatter is when you bleed
So don’t push me
Or I might just crack
I’m so lost without you.
But you’re so free without me.
Now I have never kissed you before
But I have imagined it.
What it might feel like
Or what you might do
Some people say it’s magical
But do you think that’s true?
Because my Father says it’s like a raindrop,
Now I don’t understand that too
But he’s had a lot more experience than me
If I had to guess what he meant
I would say it’s soft,
And sends a chill down your spine,
Is a little uncomfortable at first
But in the end, it will be just fine.
If this is true, then it’s not how it feels that makes it magical
It’s the fact I’ll be doing it with you.

I can’t find a single thing to say
When your smile accidentally makes my day.
The creaking boards, leading to the endless fog
The smell of salt
The crack of the waves, seem like a distant memory
The only noise comes from the boards and the birds
The smoke, white as snow, consumes me as I near the end of the peer
I could only stand and stare
I wrote this in 2019. It was really smokey from the forest fires and I took my motorcycle on a ride to the beach. I walked down the pier, sat down in the smoke, and wrote this. It was so peaceful.
