3 More Pieces of Me 08.19.17

Life, death, love and rebirth are the themes of this week’s poems. Life is an ever evolving and changing thing that requires us to diligently tend the fires of our passions and be ready to receive the lessons life imparts.

The First Time + Forever

Remember the morning. In the still-dark, when my hands find you and my lips follow. In the half-sleep, we seek comfort and finding each other, the fear fades.
