“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.” -Unknown


stars bright
sweet like honeysuckle
cold air
breathy
thump thump
its the first time
we've never been in sync before
just listen
the forgotten wind wraps around us
our hearts beat together
the quick intakes of breath
uneven exhales
my eyelids flutter
nibbling on my lip
is this it
i close my eyes
and then open
ceiling
glowing green stars plastered above
sheen of sweat
too good to be true
disappointed eyes close
take me back, i whisper
twisting
tossing
sleep won't come
blood crawls from my chapped lip
filmy tongue licks it off
metallic
close eyes
sleep, please
a plea
at least it gets answered
