i could light a whole city

 

i do not want to have you
to fill the empty parts of me
i want to be full on my own
i want to be so complete
i could light a whole city
and then
i want to have you
cause the two of us combined
could set it on fire

12/5 Inspiration…

 

Even though some days the temperatures do drop and the wind does blow, the sun never seems to fail in Santa Barbara, California. Given that and the added palm trees, sometimes it’s hard to remember that it is December and snow is pouring down around my hometown. I guess that is why most of my inspiration boards are filled with flowers and sunshine, but I suppose that’s not an entirely bad way to feel most of the time. Thank youuuuuu Santa Barbara ❤

Flourish

And maybe I’m not numb.
For the first time in my life
I am genuinely happy.

Not for an hour
Not for a day
Not even for a week…

But for months
And months
And months
Without any fall.

Those moments of darkness have died
Along with him
And I missed it.

That darkness was a close friend of mine.
The closest friend I had for years.

That part of me has died.

And now
I flourish.

11/2 Inspo

 

most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page
where you’re sitting
your degree
your job
the money
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them

Rupi Kaur, milk and honey

I Found Peace.

I found peace in the crisp Autumn air
in the birds chirping over there
in the sun melting into my skin
in the small tingle of the wind.

I found peace in your stare
in knowing that you were there
in your efflorescent laugh when it’s tangled with mine
in the way that your fingertips fall down my spine.

I found peace in you
like I found peace in mother nature
in everything that’s true.

That’s a gift that no one could have given to me
but you.

10/12 Inspiration

 

Some thoughts today:

A friend said to me the other day, “Have you ever heard that saying? ‘If you a writer falls in love with you, you can never die.’ Cause, you know, they will always be in their writing, out there in the world forever.”

Nothing ever resonated so deeply, and what a blessing and a curse that is.
