my love stories have been
devastatingly beautiful but devastatingly
heartbreaking, too… things have felt so spiritual

to let it all be true, to let myself feel all the things i’ve
so passionately felt, but still keep letting go of
what isn’t meant to stay.

you're still learning to feel worthy... and maybe you don't believe it yet

you’re still learning to feel worthy…
and maybe you don’t believe it yet… but i hope
you keep going until you know it’s true.

like light, like warmth… and that you let
good things come to you, and you let
them fall on you without a fight.

what if life is holding something so beautiful
for you… i hope you let that be true and you let yourself
believe in the beautiful as it unfolds
all around you… i hope you let it all
make you feel so free.

i used to be so hard on myself for how long it can take me to let go and heal from things

i used to be so hard on myself for
how long it can take me to let go and
heal from things, until i started realizing…
these things are catalysts. i’m not just being
asked to let go, i’m also being asked

a perfect night... anywhere. it doesn't matter where if it ends up with you and me somewhere, just talking about anything and everything

a perfect night…
