it’s been a year darling,
what are you doing here?

he has kind eyes and a gait that
is unsure, uncertain but fills me
with a steady reassurance.

i am finished with feeling wounded,
it is time for the scars to heal and
the sun to shine bright on me

because i deserve it. i deserve a
love that is unfaltering, unwavering,
full of earnest and true intentions.

life is complicated, our hearts cannot
always conquer, our hearts cannot always
go on.

what did you expect darling, that i would
be waiting? it’s been a year now,
leave me be.


hello new boy with eye lashes that reach for the stars and 
a heartbeat that sounds like my 
favourite song.

hello boy with feet itching 
to travel the world and a taste 
for the unknown.

I can feel your energy invading 
my cells, I can feel your change
in my mind and your warmth on
my face like the sun.
