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.
Darling sweet pea! It has opened up my heart! There have been rain showers flooding into my heart as well washing away the winter in my hair.
Sleepiness has settled in my bones.
