a little mischief
in his smile and
a little wild in his eyes,
but there’s bleeding
in that heart
and a whole lot of
passion in that soul,
and he doesn’t just
make you feel things…
he lets himself feel
it all, too.

the closest heartbeat…

sometimes,
we just can’t come close
and not get hurt. this life.
it can be so hard for lovers here…
our hearts hidden
in heavy human stories,
our hearts wrapped up in so much hurt.
and you bruise each other at the touch…
and you both go a little mad along the way.
so what you feel… it lives in soul places.
and how you love,
it’s in distant heartbeats.
and how you hope, my god
how you hope
that maybe, just maybe,
there is some other way,
in some softer place, in some kinder time
where you find a way to break. through.
and you can unbreak yourselves,
and unbreak your hearts,
and you can unfold into love,
and they can fall into you,
and you can feel them in the
