forests of sound


your eyes
in a lighting of their own
absorbed
in a world of their own
these days
penetrate my skin
and I find no peace
in the ripples of your laugh
because your arms fall open
to a world 
away from me
in cold depths
entrenched in gallons of saltwater
squeezed
pressed to breaking
under deep seas
how your gaze never falters
piercing through
the space around me
grazing my earlobe
falling through air
rising against gravity
forests of sound
cloud my eardrums
oceans of love
hover
waves on the verge
these cells of my body shrivel

gratitudes

Today I am grateful for:

- pumpkins and pumpkin flavoured everything turning up everywhere
- hearing my name rolling off your tongue
- making leaps into the unknown 
- being okay with myself as I am
- my decision to be a wee bit selfish
- travel plans on the horizon <3
