Message from Writer

Love your body, because you are your body, not in the sense of it being the only thing by which you are judged, but in the sense of it being the vessel for your soul and the protector of your mind.

Sparks
It’s a feeling that won’t go the hell away
an undeniable need to hold you
kiss you
just once, God, and I swear,
the noise will subside.
Yes. I want to kiss you.
For a really long time.
I’m sorry if that’s disgusting.
I just miss you so much
that it has become a hole
full of rushing water
eroding my insides
and soon there will be nothing left.
So sparks
are all I can hold onto 
Clutch them in my hands
bring them to my chest
hold them over my ears
Sparks.
