smile bright 

god is sunshine

melting laughter

out the gutter 

something right 

weak hands 

kisses, hugs

keeping straight faced

getting high 

rolling circles 

round my cuboid 

you’re not a big drinker 

and I get so serious 

don’t know what time it was 

lookin’ so perfect 

high hopes

though there’s fire 

burning in the distance 

forever after 

doesn’t exist 

groovy 

baby spin it 

forget 

like the first time 

like the last time 

right now 

right now we got sunshine 

god is light reflecting

off your eyes 

Heartbeats

slippin’
I’ll just keep on
stay with this
ice snow drifts
wheels runnin’ in the dirt
want me to fix it
I’m tired, a kitten
alternating realities, this
psychosomatic whirlwind
it’s feeding
the lights could be dimmer
draining,
succulence
plant ginger, plant garlic
perhaps it could grow
in the frigid window
really
just focus, breathing
avocado stay moist
one day, just maybe
you’ll become a tree
our thoughts turn
to words
symbols, reality
sewing seeds
when we talk about
escapades, reveries
little curlicues of stories
open to windows
to worlds
thank you for sharing
music with me
your soul
your laughter
have a nip
a taste of that
sweet nectar
with me

Love again

  

I want to talk about love. That indescribable, ever-evolving feeling that we can’t stand but can never get enough of. I’m the type of person that can fall, hard. That reach for the moon, over the fence, word series kinda stuff. If wearing your heart on your sleeve is something, I wear mine as a whole damn outfit. 

I have nothing to hide. Look at me, feel me, and most importantly – talk to me. Tell me your story, your pain, tell me about the shadowy stuff you hide in the dark crevices of your psyche that you’re afraid to air out. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. 

Judgment happens when you don’t love yourself. You find small things that irk you in others and you blow them up. That person then represents everything you hate in society, they exude it, they’re dripping with it. I have been that girl many times. 

God I can’t believe she did that. She’s so…

Now. I tend to shut down when this happens. We’ve got one life to live, and if you’re sat around worrying about how others compose theirselves, maybe you need to dance a little. Let go of that time you weren’t recognized, that time someone made you feel like garbage, get outside. 

People are beautiful, we are unstoppable. We hug, we smile, we cook meals and get covered in dirt. We climb mountains, we kiss kittens, we dive down into shipwrecks. We pick others up who are in pain.

That, that’s what love is. 

When someone is hurting, you don’t shoot them down more. Make them feel worse. When someone is spiralling into bad behaviour, you don’t kick them and tell them they’re bad. You squeeze them and tell them it’s okay and you go for a walk together. 

If you’re invited to my house, drink my gin and wear my prettiest dress and make a mess and tell me all about what you did today. Cause when there’s passion in your eyes you’ve got such a pretty face. I won’t make fun of you. We can use my best blanket and get it all grimy in the grass and I’ll make us lunch with my best ingredients as long as you’ll tell me what’s upsetting you about your parents. 

Love is never having to hide who you are. And I’m so in love with the world I don’t hide much. So if one of these days you find me all messed up, all I need is a hug. 

And that day it happens to you, I’ll be there to hold you too.
