FREE WRITING

i've followed my heart all over these towns / second-grade playgrounds / friends' backyards / blanket forts / libraries full of paper-bound adventures / i can see it reflected in / the lake next to my school / and so many sparkling eyes
most people have to search / for the place their heart can rest / but i find mine everywhere / fragments of my love / strung together with sunshine and elmer's glue /
people have trouble / with my love-too-much-too-long / it's hard to move on / when each memory holds an essence of me / i think that's why i've never completely fit into one place / i'm scattered throughout the chapters of my life / save some space for my future
This is inspired by the line "if you're supposed to follow your heart, if it's in a million pieces, which do you follow?" from spectral's super cool piece birthstones. It didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it to and I wish I could have done the original piece justice. *shrugs* I guess I'm still learning how to write my story.

    This is so beautiful and full of longing for travel, to me.
    Replying: ha ha, I misinterpreted your piece, I guess. Still a great piece, though.
