epochs of love

We are the sun. Bright and prodigious. But dangerous, oh so dangerous. Now that you’re gone the sun still remains; beautiful and life-giving, a reminder of what was. I cannot look on our star without being blinded by the intensity of it all. Yet I do not wish the sun away, it gives me warmth on my coldest days and just like life on earth would cease to exist without this glowing ball of fire I would cease to exist without the remnants of your love.

first.

It’s at the age of video games and late night outs with best friends that you find him. When all you ever have to worry about was wrapping up shoots and editing content for a class project and showing up to your shifts at the quaint little bookstore down the street. Routine that he disrupts with his coffee eyes and spring smile.

Salt of the Earth

Something about the exchange
Of molecules between our lungs
and words within our breaths.

Something about my thumb
grazing your thumb instead
of a fluorescent screen
bearing your name.

Something about live music,
the way my ears taste the bass,
can never sound the same
in small white earphones,
but I enhance the volume anyway.

Something about you,
and how a drop of morning dew
is even more refreshing
than diving in a swimming pool
on a late July afternoon.
Finally I breathe cool, damp air.

And even among the opposite,
in a crowd humid and hot,
sweat beads on my upper lip,
I taste salt and dirt,
and hear each finger play each string
and voice sing raw word,
your existence becomes visceral, true.

I feel every single element
that conceived you.

I really miss all those moments..
Those little talks,
beautiful glances,
gentle kisses,
warm hugs n every single second
of our love epoch..
Everyday I’m wrapping myself
in the warmth memories of our togetherness
sitting alone
on the sands of time..
