I remember when I could breathe
When the air was sweet
And my lungs were free
When my arms were spread
And my feet were bare

When I wasn't choking.
...coughing.
...dying.

When the day meets the night, there is hope
There is light after dark
There is purpose after rest
There is life after death

When my heart met yours, there was hope
That was light after dark
There was purpose after loss
There was life after death

When the day meets the night, there is love
There is bliss after despair
There is home after forage
There is peace after war

When my heart met yours, there was love
There was bliss after despair
There was home after solitude
There was future after past

When I fell in love with you
There was everything
I'm in love

I dance.

My toes dig into the soft mud
My dress is drenched from the rain

I dance.
My arms are outstretched
Cutting through the air as I spin

I dance.
I smile at the moon
My heart is full
I'm in love with this moment

I dance.

I breathe you in like sage and jasmine
I feel you like a whole universe is in my chest
I think about you like marshmallows and lavender
You're the sweetest human being my soul has ever tasted
You're the spiciest meal I've ever fed my mind
You're warmest blanket that's ever covered me

When I look at you I see a king
I see an emperor conquering his empire,
Defiantly taking what's rightfully his
I see a whole soul, an old soul
A warm soul, a full soul
A kind soul, a weary soul
A strong soul.
A strong mind.
I love you

so I noticed that we both drink coffee.
just like anyone, we both like ours a certain way.
i like mine sweeter, with just the aftertaste of coffee there.
caramel, sugar, creamer.
i think about when i’ll have my next cup, and the idea of it alone makes me happy.
i don’t care what time of day i have it, i almost always have a cup.
i make time for my coffee.
it might be safe to say i think you like your coffee black.
you might add just the smallest touch to soften its bitter taste, but never too much.
sometimes i think you just pour it and carry on, as though it’s nothing important at all.
as though all it is, is just some quick fix.
like you just want to get it over with.
we drink it in two different ways.
i drink it slowly.
i note every flavor in every sip, i enjoy it.
i note the warmth it brings me.
i like it all hours of the day.
you drink it quickly.
quicker than me, at least.
you don’t care if it burns your tongue, or perhaps you’re used to the pain.
you accept it.
you never let it last, you move on to something else soon after.
i lay in your bed, watching your eyes as they skim the screen in front of you.
your mind is somewhere else.
i savor the moments you look my way, if even for a second, and smile at me.
i wonder if you even notice them.
i feel your laugh vibrate my bones, making the hair on my arms stand on end.
do i make you feel at all?
i reflect on it every time i drink my coffee.
i think about it with each and every sip, taking my time.
something tells me that you don’t do the same.
after all, it's just coffee.
but i put my all into this coffee.
i think you like your coffee black.

I remember you there, with your back against the wall.
Baseball cap giving you some kind of mystery.
Some kind of shadow.
You were calm that night.

But your eyes.
You looked at me that night,
and I knew

It was always your eyes.
Always in the shadow of that cap.
Leaving a mischievous smile peeking out at me.

When you did look at me...

When you looked at me...

When I saw your eyes ...

Your eyes
They told me everything
Everything that I already knew
and more

Your eyes
Your eyes

Your eyes.

Maybe* it's in your genes...

That thing about you that I could never explain
That thing about you that made my eyes glitter
That thing about you that made my heart stutter
That thing about you that made my smile wider
That thing about you that made my body shiver
That thing about you that made my nights sweeter

**Maybe it's in your jeans...
