Honestly

The words have disappeared inside of me
swallowed
by a surge of world
in a puff of white.
Scattered petals
twirl        twirl
in the gentle, dancing wind

honestly

honestly, it echoes          with the rustling leaves
just let me be
be

Stars

Stars
fell from her eyes
hair swirling clouds in the orange sky
what
she wondered
was keeping her here? 

Evergreen

Hey      you said, turning
at the sight of your smile, your arms and your hazel green eyes

My world returned to life,           full color
blossoming ever evergreen.

Softly

She saw the thunder in his eyes,
reflecting flashes in its green-brown hues.
The wind and its howl
and the rain
tickling the rough concrete sidewalk.

It bewildered her, to watch all of it happen
in its gentle beauty
and he
he watched her,
her soft brown hues and soft
unearthly glow.

dandelion.

“How is it that you’re so strong?”
A laugh escapes my lips
dancing like a wisp

A hundred eyes watch me
a thousand hands reach
reach

I wish I was a dandelion
blown into an invisible draft
free to run, to fly

a soaring bird, never ever
putting a foot down onto the lush,
plentiful earth.

Push

A stroll by the sidewalk
in the cold
afternoon sun

A pinch in my sides
in my feet
it hurts.

Involuntary muscle contraction
that’s what it feels like to be
with you

A painful squeeze in my chest
and my heart freezes
hot ice

If this was meant for me
why
does it hurt so much?

 

Paper plane

It was always
hard to pin you down

Your footsteps
like a needle in a haystack.

With your arms
outstretched to the sky,

my world inevitably, fell
into yours

with the force of gravity, with a blink
of seasons.
