You don’t know distance
until you’ve shared your bed
with someone who’s falling
out of love with you.

The hours between

12am and 6am

have a funny way

of making you feel

like you’re either

on top of the world

or under it.

On the difficult days,

when the world’s

on your shoulders,

remember that diamonds

are made

under the weight

of mountains.

Accept that not everyone

will understand you,

that every soul is its own equation.

While you may appear

as little more than

senseless gibberish to some,

others will need only a single look

to get a grasp of who you are.

Never dull,

dumb down,

or adjust yourself

to fit somewhere you don’t belong.

Unique, Honest Self

The most important thing

you will ever do

in your life

is learn to embrace

your unique, honest self.

A boundless, infinitely populated universe

and there is nothing else here

quite like you.

This is your power.

All those things

that make you strange and different

also make you irreplaceable.

I have learned that people
will stay, leave, save,
and destroy you,
but by far
the most dangerous thing
they can ever do
is come back.

Rise & Shine
Rise and shine.
I’ve always
felt such fondness
for that sweet old phrase.
As though
we are all little suns.
As though
we are all someone’s day.

Open your heart
and share with me
every encounter and experience
that shaped you
into who you are today.

It is so simple
and effortless with you.
Every moment
sounds like “Welcome home.”

The fact that the word lovesick exists, that the simple absence of a person can make you feel physically ill, says a great deal about the terrible power of the human heart.

One of these days
you will meet eyes
with someone
who makes you feel
so at home in the world
you will think to yourself,
“Ah, there you are.

I want to fall to sleep with you, and I couldn’t care less whether it is in layer upon layer of clothing or only our skin. All I really want is to wake up not knowing where I end and you begin.

Separate Journeys

Timing is a hell of a thing. In the end, that’s all it comes down to. The potency of an attraction or the purity of a connection means very little if you are on separate journeys. You and I were a perfect fit. We were. There was just too much distance between us to see it

Close Enough

It was never love,

but we carried

the same scars,

and sometimes

that is close enough

You are the love of my life.

I never needed us

to last a lifetime to know that

A Prayer

I hope to God

I feel again

what I have felt

for you

Long Distance

When they work, long-distance relationships are the best sort of beautiful, I think. That a person could wait months, cross miles and oceans for a few short spectacular moments with the person they love, that’s it, you know, that’s what we’re all searching for
Jodi Clarke

Of all those numberless little fortunes that led me to you. A broken alarm clock, a delayed train, a sudden downpour, and there we were. You and I, sharing coffee, our whole lives ahead of us.

Little Burning Lights

We sit in silence and watch the stars. I suppose because there are no words, not in all the languages on earth, that can properly describe the feeling of being in love, and perhaps those little burning lights out there in the dark are the closest we come to something that does.

The Test

Goodbyes are important. They are how we know we are doing the right thing. If they come easy, then by all means leave and never look back. But if you open your mouth and feel the words get stuck like glue in your throat, you are making a terrible mistake.

Distance

You don’t know distance

until you’ve shared your bed

with someone who’s falling

out of love with you.

Around you, I start living.

The sorry thing about loss is it’s not the pain that beats me but the fear the pain will pass. That sooner or later I will pull myself together and move on. That’s the killing blow. To know that someday, no matter how hard I fight it, I will forget how it felt to love you

I know you’re not supposed to look to other people to save you, but whenever I’m around you the world becomes simple. My moods lift and the skies shift from smoke and smog to the softest blue. I know I’m meant to save myself, but the fact is, with you I don’t have to
