No, no, that's wrong. It's never right to give up on someone.”
― Lauren DeStefano, Fever
Open wide - let the sun show off its shine in life. Allow the joy to touch your soul. Chances are, you don't have a prayer of keeping it out.
Flowers. There must always be flowers to color my world.
Your touch would start my turn
From the bottom to the top
To a place I can breathe
Once, all over again
The night almost gone
I know how I feel
Getting off this spinning wheel
Again, all over again
And just like that, these musings are done. I want to thank @Uwelang for hosting this challenge and just so you know, although much sun and shine was used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day!
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?"
