And when I fell, you caught me

a solid form, and you held tight

turning me into something real

And when I looked into the mirror of your eyes

I saw the shadows of  the earth and the moon

And somewhere in the realness of it all

I began to fly apart and all my pieces drifed and lifted

And I was rising, spreading out further than the universe

a pillow and a blanket for all the stars

a stretching muscle that is reawakening

and yet I was as small as a wish pressed against your chest

Time was still as I counted all your heartbeats

Until infinity began again

And then you move, and a shaking begins

an epicenter of we, two

cause and effect

spontaneous confliction

intense friction?

All at once I’m slammed back into the ether

and I’m wavering between substance and element

and as I come and

float back down

the moon and the earth

have this spinning sound

and there’s nothing to catch

and I’m right to where I began.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
