She is so fucking gorgeous
And that is the least interesting thing about her.
I never wanted to fall in love with her
All I ever wanted to do was understand her;
But it was in exploring that I found her soul
And I am convinced that anyone would fall for such beauty.
I had never written an honest love poem
Until I heard her sob
From my stage
And I felt my heart tear in my ribcage
For the first time
The words came pouring out
I held my breath for the entire 48 seconds that it took her
To look at me after we kissed
On that escalator
In the airport
And when she finally did
I saw stars in her eyes for the first time.

This is beautiful….
I have been following your blog for a few years now and it has always inspired me. I can really see how you have grown as a writer and a person and I want you to know that your work is appreciated!
Thank you so much for your kind words :’) I was JUST thinking today that I shouldn’t bother posting anything, but now that I know that someone is out there getting something from my work, of course I have to continue. Bless you ❤
