In the depths we swim deeper

we are magic

we are moments.

we are dreams and

we are everything.

and in the depths

we swim

deeper to

discover that we

are not born whole

so we cannot be

broken. we are born

in two’s, and we are

searching, searching

for the other piece,

that other person

to guide us home.

Pieces of her heart

She left pieces of her
life behind her
she went.

It’s easier
to feel the
without them,
she said.

completely fallen

I have completely fallen for you. Everything you do, everything you say, everything you are. You’re my first thought in the morning, you’re my last thought before I fall asleep, and you’re almost every thought in between.


Words cease to exist

The eyes are one of the

most powerful tools a

woman can have.

With one look, she

can relay the most

intimate message.

After the connection

is made, words

cease to exist.

walked into love

“I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway. And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you”

― Kiersten WhiteThe Chaos of Stars

your dangerous chaos

your dangerous chaos was

a danger to my beautiful

ordinary life, and i knew 

that. then suddenly, we

became beautifully 

extraordinary together.

all or nothing


“She was too quiet, or she was too loud. She took things too seriously, or not seriously at all. She was too sensitive, or too cold-hearted. She hated with every fiber of her being, or loved with every piece of her heart. There was no in-between for her. It was either all or nothing. She wanted everything but settled for nothing.”



dance with me…



“We will run and scream, you will dance with me,we’ll fulfill our dreams and we’ll be free.”

I fell for you again

“I can still taste the tip of your tongue

On the back of my tongue,

And your breathing,

slowly escalating,

Getting warmer,

On my neck.

Your body


My body.

Your hand,

Grasping for air,

On my hair,

Your fingertips tracing

The hills and valleys of my back.

You can have my body,

But you’ll never have my soul back.

I fell for you again,

Like the rain falls,

In the fall.

But though you pretend,

You’ve never loved me at all.




Memories whisper-drift
Unrealized dreams
Wait on the edge, and time
Sways anchored inside
The space where nothing matters;
Hearts share a moon glistened destiny,
An intertwined beauty
Holding on tightly, hands clasped in prayer,
Night whispers the beating heart, nestled safely
On horizon’s cusp
As rain softly whispers kisses down upon the echoes
Staining each sacred ache,
Petals of silk
Open arms
Heart-prints collide upon tender;
Shadows of happiness,
Softest reflections beneath a breath…



just like that

And just like that, he picked her up and dusted her off.

Without even trying. That’s how their love was.

When she was at her worst,

he saw her at her best.
