everything beautiful i can’t make sense of…

you are the sweetest feeling i know – butterflies rising

you’re out there
and i’m here wishing i could
reach for you as easy
as a star could cross a sky…
just fall across your chest
and feel it all again.
your way of settling my madness with
that soft… slow… “baby” late at night,
and how you feel like everything beautiful
i can’t make sense of.
it’s a dangerously pretty edge
when you’re here,
but there’s a wild ache when you’re not
and my axis pulls and pulls to
wherever you are.
i still feel you, and i miss you
and i miss you…
you are the sweetest
feeling i know.

i don’t know any other way…

and maybe it's just too vulnerable a thing... this ache to feel it all so deep

and maybe
it’s just too
vulnerable a thing…
this ache to feel it all so deep,
to break myself so open,
to feel it all so sweet.
and to crave the wildest
ways that it can burn,
to let it make me
such a mess and bring me
to such an edge,
to let all be such an
untamed. passionate thing.
maybe none of this is the
safest way to love…
but i don’t know any other way.
