"The world turns and the world spins, the tide runs in and the tide runs out, and there is nothing in the world more beautiful and more wonderful in all its evolved forms than two souls who look at each other straight on."
— Gary D. Schmidt (Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy)


Snow fell in my hair the night I couldn’t bear to kiss your lips
because I knew mine hadn’t been there last
I didn’t want to taste the way you felt about her
I held your bruised ribs for a moment but then backed away
Standing in the shower I let the water shut me out
trying to wash away the heavy knowledge
and tightening the left knob far too tight
burning off the skin that didn’t feel like mine
I tried to let my heart cry in a song
loudly so the notes rang dissonant on tiles
each lyric said something based on love and hope
while I tried to hold on to understand what hurt most
