"Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything."
you have a home in me.
underneath the skin that wears so thin,
between the white of smooth ribs
lies a heart that beats—
it beats for you.
ticks and tocks that, unlike a monotonous clock,
dance about wildly and wonderfully
to carry the fervor flowing in these veins like
a roadmap filled with paths that lead to you.
you are the journey, but no,
you are also the destination.
Your touch is sea salt
against my skin,
pure and raw;
I’d strain the ocean to feel you,
I’d strain the ocean,
To define is to limit.
To force emotions and feelings,
people and places,
into silhouettes of
letters and words
when they were never meant to
fit within such small confines.
How can you expect a cage
to encompass the world?
It hasn’t been this gloomy in quite some time and I’m reveling in the scent of petrichor, in the wonderfully ashy-colored clouds drooping awfully low, in the serenity that a day like this brings.
As I stare at the electricity lines and dare to imagine just how far they stretch, it starts to sprinkle once more. Raindrops fall quickly and lightly, kissing the surface of the ground with dewy mouths on iridescent faces. It’s beautiful. I’m so in love with this moment.
The gentle pitter patter calms and ceases, and the moment is gone just as quickly as it arrived.
