Note to self

And loving yourself isn’t a sin,
loving yourself is one of the bravest things people will call you out on.
Most things about you are magical and should be praised.
You are a goddess in and of yourself

grandmothers

When your grandmother dies,
she does not remain in the ground
or in the picture on your bedside table.
you will find,
that when a man kisses new dreams into you
you’ll remember to thank her for your face
and the lessons she whipped into your skin
thank her for making you worthy of good love
again and again.

Know.

I write you poems because God spoke the universe into existence,
So don’t ever let me hear you say that words are just words.
That words don’t leave a mark, make a change, create
where once was nothing.

what it should be

Kiss me with your entire life,
Anything less than that and it can’t be love.

The Process

The snow & I

Don’t ask me to stay the same,
Ask me to stay and I will try to always love you the same,
But even that I can’t promise.

Love is :
the sweetest of surrenders
and the most common offender.
Be wary of it.

On distance

I was intended for you,
lover,
what does the ocean matter?

Yours

I am going to love you,
again and again
until it wrecks me
and I will call the wrecking my truth
and I will live in the wreckage
again and again
because quitting you is as dangerous
as loving you.

I am the girl you shouldn’t love but still do.
I am the lesson you have yet to learn.

passion

Camera 360I offer you chippings of my life
because love is risky and loving is reckless
take the shreds.
take the particles.
keep them,
guard them,
one day you’ll have me whole
and girls like me don’t usually belong
to anyone but ourselves.
