117 (who?)
this is a poem at midnight
a walking away of hands.
it is beautiful
we will never run out
of salt the way we
run out of love

we are children of the sea
oceans inside our
glass bodied vessels
and drifting along rough sands.

i want to touch you
a hundred different ways,
to kiss you like i need it to breathe.
you just tell me about making magic
i can tell you about making love
(and how they are both the same).

i love you more than i love myself
and i wish that actually meant
something. instead i rely on
poorly structured letters
and wrap my head round the wildflowers
in hopes that we can lie
hopelessly entangled
until it is uncertain where
i end and you begin.

make me laugh and you have my soul.
the way your heart beats in my ribs,
around my spine,
you are magic.
(because home is wherever you are, and any space between is just the path from me to you.)


i'm happy. i am. i'm sleep deprived. i am. i'm doing my communications homework and going to sleep. or dying. but either way it will be with a smile on my face.

I completely understand being happy and writing depressing (or at least not happy) poetry. Sometimes getting this out is the only way one can stay happy.

I was listening to Warm Whispers by Missy Higgins while reading this and it made me closer to this poem than ever (or I don't remember). I'm wrapped into the rough beauty.

i like it when you are happy.

i like it very very much.

and your writing seems to be more gentle and relaxed. there's a definite influence from mood there. [but that's already obvious.]

I have to say this is a really beautiful poem.
You've really and honestly captured pure emotion into words and made it beautiful.
Great job <3
