Mother Nature

I’m wrapped in your soft, willow arms. 
I arch my neck as the sun plants kisses of sweet honeydew down to my collarbone. 
Your light breath, a breeze, brushes my cheek and touch’s my senses. 
Wild flowers grow where your fingertips trace my skin. 
Buttercups
Indian paintbrush 
Queen Anne's Lace 
A wonderland of colors, scents, and smells. 
I get drunk on your love Mother Nature.

The moon and stars

What would happen if the stars and moon collided?
It already happened in your eyes. 
The sorrow of a thousand yesterdays and 
the joy of a million tomorrows. 
The captivating light dancing in them. 
I could swim in them all day and drown in the 
Moon and Stars c o l l i d i n g.

I'm Awake

I feel as though an angel has been sent to me. I don't know what I did to deserve him. I'm not a perfect person sometimes-most of the time actually-I'm not even a good person. For so long I have been told I was not enough, that I would never fit in, that I wasn't deserving and now here is this wonderful person saying that I am more than enough, that I fit perfectly in their arms, that I deserve  the whole world. I don't know what to think of it. Is this real? Can someone pinch me to make sure? My feelings are scattered; is this real or just a whisper of smoke that I want so desperately to be real?

 I do think it's real. For so long I believed what they said about me but now I'm not so sure. What if you- you beautiful, caring person- are right? You would never lie to me. You mean so much to me for being able to see past this broken shell to what I forgotten had lain sleeping all this time.

Well now I'm awake.

You

Look at you, look at me
Perfect pair 
But not meant to be
I fear. 
I want you and I’m pretty sure I 
Need you....
The sound of your voice 
Is the first sound I’ve 
heard since being deaf for 
a thousand years. 
Your smile is the first thing 
I’ve seen since being blind for 
a million years. 
And.... 
Just....
you....
I want to talk to you but how?
I just don’t know 
What do you think when you see me?
Yes
No 
Maybe so?
I need answers from 
You.
