And then...There was you
Drawing my heart. Close.
I can never forget.
I’ve known you forever. And yet.
How is it? We've just met.
Dressed in shades that don’t exist, things that may, but not anymore
Washed in stillness, wrapped in peace
Welcoming you to this silent retreat
I hit pause and wait, wait, wait
I love you far too deeply. A love from deep within. No end to its beginning just loops around again. But you are right, it’s scary deep. And so…I keep my guard, hoisted way up high.
I keep aloof. I leave it inside.
A flower. Always. This picture is dedicated to #ThursdayGreen #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world. Every. Single. Day.
So the joy may touch your soul

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
