angels and earth…

we make it a little softer here for someone

some of us just aren’t made
for how hard the edges are here,
for how slow pain moves,
or how lost light can get,
and how heavy it all can weigh…

we’re surely not made for how flawed humans love.

but while we’re here…
we can try to love a little deeper, and burn
a little brighter, and maybe, just maybe,
we make it a little softer
here for someone.

this isn’t the end…

this world is too wide, and this universe is too big

heartbreak has this way
of making your world seem so small,
just taking everything that
has meaning and collapsing it into
one single story, with only one other person,
and just one version of yourself, in just
one version of life, with what feels
like no way out, and as if there is
nothing more to know

but this world is too wide, and this
universe is too big, and you are just too beautiful,
and there is just way too much inside of you,
for you to let this be the end

this isn’t the end…
