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….
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.
