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

a wild heart burning…

a wild heart burning

you stay still
waiting for a cold heart to
warm towards you,
while somewhere else out there
is a wild heart burning,
so untamed, and so unafraid to light up
everything in you

a wild open…

love me in a wild open with a gentle hold

love me in a wild open
with a gentle hold
where i find myself, in myself
but let me feel
your racing heart
and your burning blood
through your steady hands
and let this be how we love
so we can love in a way that the stars we
come from want for us to know

let us burn and breathe all at once
