love languages (blood + sugar + love + magic)…

love languages (blood + sugar + love + magic)

love languages…

blood + fire… the wild. the passionate.
the visceral things that burn in your veins,
that bite at your senses, that give you a pulse

sugar + flowers… the sweet. the soft.
the vulnerable things that tender the walls
and break your heart open

love + soul… the deep. the true. the heart.
the lungs. the breathing. the wings. the free…
the things you ache for… and the ones that ache back

magic + stars… the infinite. the destined.
the things you feel beyond words, beyond bodies,
beyond… before… after… always.

that moment right before something wild and beautiful is about to happen…

that moment right before something wild and beautiful is about to happen

that moment right before something wild
and beautiful is about to happen…

it’s why that girl loves a drop… you get pulled into that
moment that holds your breath, and then the music
takes over like the whole world is high on
soul-driven adrenaline / and in that feeling right before
a kiss… there’s that universe that only the two of
you exist in, and then the kiss takes over your whole body
like some kind of love-flavored mescaline / it’s the let-go
before the give-in / the suspension before the collision /
when we hand our head over to our heart and let
something made of magic find its way in

…she likes the way that feels… that moment right before
something wild and beautiful is about to happen.

smoke & sugar…

we can kiss slow and wild until we forget time and collapse.

smoke & sugar…

you’ve got
too much gravity
in your head.
so take it easy.
and put the heavy down.
we could be delicate here.
or not…
you could come mix
that smoke on your lips
with the sugar on mine
and we can kiss slow and wild
until we forget time
and collapse.

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.
to let all of that shadow and sugar be in you
and the 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.

it’s all so beautiful…

passion. and vulnerability. fire and wild and art and love and sugar and soul.

passion.
and vulnerability.
fire and wild and art and love
and sugar and soul.
a pull towards the stars;
an ache to be more free…
to feel. so. alive.
with a need to feel things deeper
and sweeter and closer,
and a heart that changes shape
when something moves you.
it’s all so beautiful.
so let go of the ways this
world says you’re supposed to be
and feel all of the ways
that your soul is.
