Will you still love me when I become an unfinished draft?
You are a beam of sunshine, truly.
I told every shadow I knew about you.
I ran through the prairie humming your name until the earth danced to it.
I dreamed of the eclipse and woke up with you kissing my eyelids.
You have always been my moon.
I blinked and my body turned into a river.
"How To Become Acquainted With Yourself…"
After you scribbled in all the colors.
After you followed all the lines.
And the glass still makes your skin too shy.
I followed the sun until even it turned me away.
Tonight I am letting the moon tuck me in.
Do not allow mirrors to tell my eyes what to see.
Carry the clouds everywhere I go.
