Just the Way You Are

I dreamed a dream.

And in it

you were in love

with

you.

Just the way you are.

Whispers

She whispered to her heart:

Go.

Be Brave.

Make me whole, again.

Butterfly Catcher

I was born

to be a catcher of butterflies.

Pass me my net

and I will show you

the joy

and the wonder

that lay sleeping

in your bones.

The Truest Love

Loving others

broke her.

Loving herself

fixed her.

And then there was magic.

Pure, delicious magic.

The Kiss

Give me

the broken glass of your soul

and I will lead you to the moonlight

and show you the kiss

that already sits upon your forehead,

soft

and waiting

to soothe you.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

My heart

lives

inside of me.

Dearest, home.

I’m sorry it took me so long to find you.

In the Stars

Meet me in the stars

my precious little ones.

And we will dance

and play

and love

without the endings

human life

must eventually bring.

Rain

Maybe

this whole time

instead of running away from the rain

we should have been running into it

asking it questions,

like:

‘If you can feed the green under my feet—

what is it, rain, that you can do for me?’

Some Kind of Magic

It’s some kind of magic

that you

and you

and you

will read these words

and think

and feel

and be

something different than you were

before you read them.
