Favorite Quote:
"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the things that take our breath away."

Sometimes I hear his
heartbeat and it sounds
like a hummingbird through
water, slow and continuous.
And sometimes when he
whispers my name it
sounds like how a star
would be like.
I wonder if he hears my soul, as
it shakes and shivers
and pushes against the
very air I breathe. There
are times I cry and
the wetness falls and falls, and
I cry more because the
tears will never come back.
I do not like being left alone,
so he holds me and we
jump and I feel more
alive than anything in
the entire world.

The author's comments:
I don't know what truly inspired me. I suppose it was being alive in this beautiful spring, and the love I see all around me.
