the tears stream down your face.
i kiss you deeply, surely.
you taste of the ocean,
dangerous, bold, daring
& your eyes are a galaxy
that you've lost yourself in.
i dry the tears from your cheeks
pulling you into me
like a wave crashing to shore,
you're alone no more.
you are a ship, waging war
against a rough sea,
darling i'll be your lighthouse
sure & steady, i'll bring you home.

the stars, the moon,
the ocean's roar,
all the things i loved before
pale in comparison to you.
your smile, your laugh,
your hand in mine,
the way you joke
to pass the time,
i can't imagine another by my side
forever in love with you.

you & i
never learn easy.
we fight & stand & fall
just to do it all again.
we've got flames in our veins
and lightning in our eyes.
we're made of grass stains
and scraped knees,
mud slides & fireflies
in the dark of night.
this life is sweet torture,
& we've always loved a little pain.
when push comes to shove,
we'll shake the world
with our thundering ways,
and dance with the rain.

here is what they don't tell you:
life isn't some grand adventure.
it is not a romeo & juilet fairytale,
nor searching for the holy grail.
most days, it is monotonous.
it is no dramatic storyline,
it is petty and painfully dull.
here is what they don't tell you:
it is up to you.
you make your own storybook romance,
you seek out your own daring adventures.
you search for your own meaning
and fulfill your own dreams.
darling, you are your own hero.
make your own happy ever after,
in between the obligation and
monotony of necessity,
write your own
beautiful
story.

high in the sky
we twist and twirl,
lights shooting around us
and my vision spinning.
we freeze and fall,
each plunge grabbing my breath,
laughter bubbling from our fear.
i reach my hand above me
raking against the metal cage,
reaching for the stars.
my heart's in my throat
and i am in love with the rush,
you and i hurtling and rising,
daring the world to show us what it's got.
i may be older, but i think you
were always braver than me.
you always did make for
wonderful company.

we are from warriors.
their strength runs through our veins.
strong-willed women
and stubborn men,
and brave, bold, beautiful lives.
the sun brings out
our freckled skin
forming constellations that guide us home.
our brown eyes match the soil
between our toes.
we are wild ones
running through the trees,
the wind at our back and the stars
in our hands,
howling at the moon.

oh my loves,
i'd put the world
on a ring for you
just so you could dangle
it from your keys.
i would pull every star
from the sky
& stick them to your ceiling
so you need not fear the dark.
the ocean is vast & unknown,
yet it is but a puddle
compared to my love for you.
no matter where this life may lead,
you had me first
and you've got me always,
and there will never be a day
that i don't think of you.

peaches
taste like childhood.
sticky and sweet,
running down our chins,
our little hands like fly traps.
each bite is summertime,
sweat-bees stinging
while we wait by the pool,
skinned knees while climbing trees.
the smooth skin is a moon-eyed girl
with a mile-wide smile,
the sound of laughter
riding on the wind.
it's the sweet nectar of nostalgia.
with a little ice cream,
just like grandpa taught us.

we both have scars
from rabbits' feet
running up our arms,
i think that makes us
lucky.
grass-stained tennis shoes
and cut-off t-shirts,
summer sun stretching over us.
we make a race
of yard-work,
stealing time & sipping soda.
i love the smell of fresh-cut grass
because it reminds me of you.

we were the best of friends.

the night can get,
but don't you fear.
the stars are shining
& the moon is bright
and though i'm not near
i am here. because the moon
sees me, and the moon sees you,

love yourself.
hold yourself close
& whisper sweet nothings,
tell yourself your hopes
& dreams, write down
all the things you love about you.
the world is full
of jagged lines and harsh edges,
be the smooth curve of a smile
that you deserve.
your heart embraces the world
like a long-lost friend.
give yourself the same courtesy
that you do a stranger on the street
& your dearest love.
be soft, be patient, be kind,
love yourself.

scars from tree-climbing &
bike-racing,
rough-housing & straight-facing,
wide hearts & strong minds
& an unbreakable will.
under the same moon & sun,
wishing on the same stars,
we're always more near

we write self-doubt as our bylines,
shouting
look at me -
i don't know what i'm doing.
do not write your epitath
before you've even lived.
You are skin & bone & brawn,
brilliancy flows through your veins.
your very heartbeat is a testament
to your greatness.
so eat the fear for breakfast because
You are more than enough.
and the world is damn lucky
to have You.

you are sunshine,
lighting the morning sky.
from early on you were a butterfly,
light and breezy and beautiful.
don't you let them forget, though.
butterflies were caterpillars once.
they've watched their entire world
fall and come again.
after a thing like that,
you could conquer anything.

& the dog nipped at our backs.
it gets harsh in Ohio in the winter.
we fell & climbed
more times than i could count.
the stark white

but when i looked at you,
laughing and falling and
laughing again,
i couldn't even feel the cold.

the world is full of those
who will underestimate you.
do not let them sell you short.
you built your own world
from colored blocks and
your own two hands.
when they try to tear you down,
laugh in their face and
build yourself back up.
because you are a builder
in a world full of wreckers,
and they haven't seen
the last of you yet.

two wheels,
two girls,

to conquer.
"you can, you will"

wide smile & shaky confidence,
you felt the wind at your back.
and, not once,
did you ever look back.

life is an etch-a-sketch.
some days
are a beautiful work of art
and others are a wicked line.
in a single shake,
things go topsy turvy
and all is lost.
but from the empty sands
we can begin again.
and from nothing we make something
and from something we make nothing
and in the end,
all we have to show is the journey.

& dreams are born.
we've all got a little stardust

let yourself shine & show them
that you're a fucking galaxy
and all the best things
start and end with you.

this insecurity
is slicing the skin from my bone
like a hot knife through butter.
god how i burn
when i think of you,
of all the not enoughs in your eyes
and the words unanswered.
i don't know if it's fair to say
it all started with you.
but i do know
that i was shouting into a void
where your heart was supposed to be
and the darkness came for me
after you unscrewed the lightbulbs
for someone else's home.
when you held me in your arms
you promised me forever,
but you're both
the ghost in my camera lens
and the monster in my closet.

i love the way
you love the world,
how you hold the sun in your hands
and still let it shine.
most would shield the light,
hide it from the world.
but you are not threatened,
you are sure and soft and
a lightning bolt in a rainstorm.
how can i not fall in love
with someone who both
bends the world to her will and
side-steps for the wind?
you are the most beautiful dance
i've ever known.
