Week 19 – Stumble

Stumble

I am too good at beginnings.
They last so short, bursts of adrenaline sparking my heart when I see your name.

I feel wise beyond 23 years when I let things begin at the end,
Hope the way I leave you is better than a cold night in Hoboken, coat held to my chest, wondering when I got so lost.

It is so easy to smile at your butterflies.

Let me stumble into your arms.

Day 29 – Touch the Sky

Touch the Sky 

Today, you tell me you found what you are looking for.

 

It’s always been a competition between us,

Who can outrun the other.

 

I’ve learned that some need to win,

And I am only able to swim to my other shore,

Across my own ocean.

 

This is my cross to bear,

And I smile because things grow from the ground up.

 

Sometimes, there is nothing more beautiful than reaching up to touch the sky.
