Day 27 – Beautiful Thing

Beautiful Thing

There is no balm for the heart,
Like sitting across the table,
Knowing we can come as we are,
Share our struggles over the same sangrias we share our joys.

Friendship is a beautiful thing.


Day 18 – High Wire

High Wire

Perfection is such a fickle thing
So relative, a new normal

Tell me why you like yourself and I can’t provide an answer,
Look for things in me I don’t shove away in a drawer, come up with words like
Because I am not afraid of so many brave things but I am terrified of others

She’s always a woman,
Shades of good and bad
Imperfectly beautiful in her way

I walk a high wire of letting myself be human.

Day 2 – Show Me

Show Me

Sometimes, I want to shake you.

Rattle around and see if I can spy the things that make you you.


I don’t understand why you choose the way you do.

I love you, and I wish I could show you what four years of growing up has done,

The possibility that this world can be lit up in shades of gray.


I see your struggle,

I wish I could help you.

Oh, how I wish I could.
