this light

In your light,

I learn how to love.

In your beauty,

how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest,

were no one sees you.

But sometimes I do.

And that sight

becomes this art.


do you love only this?

inquiry for today~ somewhere very near….

the warm moon

I think we all just want to be known.

Not in the way of having our names

strung up in bright lights

or etched across the sky

in thunderous splendor,

but to truly feel like we matter.

to know that our absence makes

someone feel a little more empty

and our presence makes someone feel

a little more alive.

We do not ask for the stars but

just want love to pull up a blanket

and watch the stars beside us.

It is the small things after all,

that remind us how great we are.
