you are a golden thing​…

you are a golden thing in this heavy, heavy world - butterflies rising

i could get lost
in all the little ways
you carry love, and carry light,
and hold so much goodness in your being,
you are a golden thing
in this heavy, heavy world,
and everything feels new
when i look at you

i think love is something different…

i think love is something different

people say they want love,
but they go into relationships asking…

what can you do for me?
what can i get out of you?
who can you be for me?

that’s need. and i just think love is
something different. i think it asks different
questions. i think it looks for different things.
like…

what is this feeling with you?
what can unfold between us?
i want to know who you are.

the beautiful things they do…

the stunningly beautiful things they do

if you keep trying to find love
with people who are broken inside,
i assure you, you will spend every last
bit of your energy,
and every last moment of your life, so lost,
searching for understanding of why they do all of
the harmful, destructive things they do…

save yourself for someone who is whole within,
and i promise, you will get to live your moments,
and spend this journey,
endlessly in awe of the way they do all of the
stunningly beautiful things they do
