Amongst The Stars

I want to capture your essence 
and place it amongst the stars, 
where it'll stay glowing 
and shimmering, 
always watching me
and watching the world
Your body may crumble
but among the planets and universes
you'll live,
jumping and running and exploring 
to your heart's content. 
And when I'm feeling 
alone and abandoned, 
I know I would be able to 
look up at the sky, 
and know you'll be there 
for eternity.

What inspired this? I honestly don't know. This could become part of a song....

But on a different topic, I went to see the Lorax movie today. It was awesome, and I really liked it. It had a lot of Seuss-like dialogue, and many scenes and quotes are from the book, while adding a new dimension to the story as well. If you can, go see it. It might be cliche, but it's cute and heartwarming.

a whisper

the wind brings 
a promise, a taste  
of clear blue skies 
and stormy grey clouds, 
of warm sun and shimmering 
cool rain, 
of grass and trees awakening 
to a world of green. 
a promise, 
a whisper 
of spring.

sorry I haven't posted in awhile! just getting myself unwound and relaxed before heading back to school. getting beautiful weather here, perfect for the March Break! it's awesome just to go outside, read a book and soak up the warmth. also great for gathering some inspiration :)

Out Of My Head

Why can’t you get out of my head? 
I tried to banish you ages ago. 
So many times I’ve told myself 
that I’m better off without you, 
and yet you still lurk in my thoughts. 
Go away, 
you’ve already broken my heart once, 
I need time to heal. 
But maybe it’s not you in my head, 
maybe it’s me not wanting to forget.
