Today we say goodbye to our beloved Christine, age 27. No matter how many times she was told not to go hiking alone, she did it anyway. Raised as a suburban girl, Christine had no real survival skills, so when given the choice to turn back around when she came upon thick vegetation she could not see through, she chose to go through anyway. She met her demise in a snake she was sure would not bite her.

i uncurled from the ball in the middle of my bed
coaxed by the soft sound of your breathe.
i uncurled swiftly
to reveal my open heart to you.

with my heart open
you were able to leave your fingerprints
adoring each beat with an "i love you" in my ear
and a kiss on my neck.

it is so easy to get lost in your eyes
in the gentleness in your curves
in the close conversations shared as we lay close
but do not think--
i have forgotten who i am.

i am my own stars
i am my own moon
but i still belong to the universe of you.

it's hard to say who would be the planets and who would be the solar system. we easily revolve around each other

It was beginning to feel like I had no stories left to tell.
I felt drained like all I had left was nostalgia and ennui.

I love the power of having a story to tell.
The ability to capture an audience.
To change their day, week, perspective.
To bring the audience through a range of emotions.
To see the tears building up with sadness to flowing out as happiness, as relief.

I miss that
Of standing on the stage in front of a group of
intimate strangers

Our hearts as one are so bright
I have forgotten what the dark is.
I've found sanity in our eternity
and solace within the depths of our minds.
In our infinity
I feel alive
for the
first time
The adventure pumping through my deep
blue veins.
It lifts me out of this world
And I confess
I love you more with

Why do I love you?
My mind jumps in a million directions
Because my mind
is full of you.

Because nothing makes sense without you
You make me see the sun
where I once
saw only clouds.

You've changed the way my heart beats
I now dance in the rhythm of you
How I long to continue to dance with you
on every corner of this earth.

I want to give you everything I have, and
you've already given me the best gift--
Permission to feel safe in my own skin.
To feel enough. To be loved

I will never be
I will never be
The girl who comes home from her job and works late into the night on her passion projects
I will never be
The girl who everyone thinks I am
I will never be
"You're going to change the world," they say but that girl
I will never be
All I can be is me,
Imperfectly beautiful.
