you are like:
a mirrored lake, everything below the surface.
handwritten love letters and bright smiles.
a quaint cottage surrounded by wilderness.
the glimmering sand and burning sunsets.
the whole night sky and everything beyond it.
the force in the tide, the chill in the breeze.
lingering glances and long drives.
lightning and thunder -
there’s a place where the trees collide as if they
are making love and the hush of the leaves overlapping
is like a whisper of,
branches and plants and limbs and bodies.
maple and palm and sandalwood
and fresh air.
the roots messily fall along edges and depths
and i just want a love like that
natural like nature
quiet yet passionate
messy and thoughtful
the kind of love that is clear like a waterfall
like laughter and fish nipping at your toes
peace, sunbaths, the chirp of the birds
at the sunset bay,
where the moon tucks in daylight/
it’s like in this place,
there’s a hyperawareness of bruises
and there’s a gentle caress of the wind.
and the way your lips part at a near death or when
a song is on the tip of your clicking tongue
an empath spinning in a hurricane.
the best lover to is the one
that feels like home
and i know, for
the trees tell me so.
the places we leave,
they whisper old songs when
we fall asleep
and yet we hear them.
mayhem in the way the clouds
intertwine with the sunlight
basslines we thought we’d forgotten
play in our heartbeats
remembering our fears,
and yet, we dance.
blank spaces between stars tonight;
there, they leave traces of you
you blew out candles
like it was nothing and you’d never
lost your breath the way
i’d lost my mind,
something in the wind that is softer
than the palms of your hands were
and when you love there is
a hurricane inside
it is impossible
for you to love
with your head
saltwater in the places your coy
fish thoughts laugh and i miss that
you can see something on the horizon
it’s a dream you’re chasing after
and i hope you can find him.
how do i tell you?
i am flying so high
above these clouds
how do i show you
the butterflies that live in me
my veins full of ecstasy
the warmth of that summer breeze
the monsoon comes closer
and that rain is here to purify
everything will find its place
there is so much to see
so little to say
how do i show you
there is so much more warmth than cold
these golden rays never get old
the grass blades sway with hope
there is so much more to live for
the morning is yet to come
the dawn is where you're from
hold my hand and let me show you
together we'll run
straight into the sun
good music, good vibes
what you want
because i want you
you look the same way
the sunset paints brush strokes
on the horizon
i want to be your horizon.
sometimes we love without a reason why, without knowing anything except for this. the way we clumsily work toward interlacing our fingers reminds me that life isn't perfect until we're content withthe fact that it's not perfect.
you make me see all that life can be. with you here, i am more than content. i am happy.
you changed my life.
like an autumn evening
changes green to red.
your smile is my
and i play connect the dots between
the corners of your mouth.
you make me love.
i love love love you
his eyes spill over with yellow
and honestly i've never
wanted anything so
i found the meaning of life
in his smile/
when he says my name/
in his eyes like autumn mornings.
i was made for him.
and on good, fine, and bad days,
my love is made for me too.
i see my future in that look
he's got in his eyes.
and it's all
i ever dreamed it would be.
