and post notes and photos about your poem like Ann Foster.
My heart beats faster when you are near.
I can not think straight.
I have been blindsided by a moving truck,
that has no tangible substance.
Your beauty is breathless,
as that is the feeling I have...
I can not keep up with the dreams
that I wish to make... with you.
The hopes that I want to dare... with you.
Nothing in my life will be the same, ever.
I will long to learn to replay time.
I will build a machine.
I will travel back and forth,
again and again,
replaying every day from the first moment
to the last, even smaller than a second.
The sound of echoes across the span,
angels weeping not with sadness but joy.
They laugh as I dance for God.
I make a fool of myself,
and for you.
I stand on the wide oceans beach,
and am ready to swim.
I stand at the cliffs edge,
and I am ready to fly.
But if I drown so be it,
But if I fall, I die.
I will have lived long enough,
to have loved beyond,
all thought ever possible,
and humbly measured
not by tape or rule,
but of faith,
