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

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.

I too

I wonder if
maybe I like listening to lies
and that makes me a liar by association
because every time your lips open
teeth part
and meet
and part and meet
leaving room for untruths
to be spat out
I look at you delicately
almost proud of how good you’re getting
at making me want to believe you.

Close

You were the first thing outside of myself
that I looked at and felt connected to
Do you understand this?

When truthful

Do not write me off as empty
because alone
is my peace.
I have chosen myself first
fiercely
because I suffice.

On distance

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

.For you.

I have all the audacity in this world
see how I love you!
see how I adore your skin!
like you were the earth itself
like you were everything in the sky
and when I am in your arms
I am the bird.
the gleeful bird.

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.
