"In your bed,
I can stretch out to the four corners of the universe.
Beyond my fingers’ touch?
Nothing matters.
So I breathe, breathe, breathe.
In
&
out.
In
&
out.
And reach over to pull your lips to mine."

If faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains,
What does my faith say about me?
If my mountain cannot be moved…

You are my mountain.
You are my sky above, littered with stars.
You are the waves crashing at my feet.
And the wind caressing my cheek.
You came in, my own private hurricane.
My landscape is forever changed.

So if I can’t move you,
If I can’t extinguish the stars,
What of my faith?
And how else have you altered me?

I’ve had love won,
And love lost.
To face many dark nights
-Alone.
Only to find myself;
And then?
Only to find love won,
And wisdom.

Love does not always remain won.

Bow to string.
Once again;
Not enough pressure,
Not enough contact.
The old song comes out scratchy and crunchy.
An echo of what used to be.

I sit down in frustration,
Only to stare at the hands which betray me.
Trying to create what once was…
It isn’t working.

So I turn the page to find something new.
So I lift my bow to string,
And fingers to you.

"Breathe
Take air in,
But also let it out.
You know,
You are worth your weight in gold.
You are love.
So let it in.
It being-
Happiness,
Contentment,
And love.
But also?
Let it out."

Raindrops as numerous as my stampeding heart beats crash on the ground.
Adults with youth still shining in their faces have hunkered down,
Lives paused until the storm has passed.

Could I brave the wind and deluge?
Could I race outside and hold out a bucket for each drop?
As if I were catching a falling star…

If I could,
I would launch that star,
To go over your horizon;
To act as your guardian
And fulfill your every wish.

In the space between:
Dreams
And reality,
I smiled and rolled into you.


Right onto the floor.

I helped take pictures of my best friend’s older sister’s wedding.
It was a beautiful church.
