Lost And Found…

first, i got lost

and in his arms holding me…
then i got lost in all the lies he told,
and i was just… lost.

shadow & sugar…

to let all of that shadow and sugar be in you - butterflies rising

shadow & sugar…

you are
allowed to be
a many-layered thing…
to have texture and shades.
to be kissed by the sunlight
and bitten by the moon
and to feel all the different
ways that you feel,
all the raw and tender
mess of it all.

pretty and dirty and beautiful
and wild run through you
and spill out of you
everywhere, all at once…
to just let yourself be a
soft and wild thing.
