Favorite Quote:
"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad, petty, little, unsexy ways every day." - David

incandescent love
burning holes in my irises as
flaming sunsets melt the rain away.
the husk of my world dangles threads of
color-coded memories and pop tab wishes.
when night comes alive with neon conversations
and the clicks of sensible heels, i will try to
convince you that my smile is just because
and i'll cross my fingers for you to catch my drift.
minty secrets, sore heels, breathless laughter and
sugar crushes that melt in my thoughts;
they all tell me to never stop loving this windows down adventure, these peeling billboard signs.

The author's comments:
I created a sort of abstracted version of every day life: looking at sunsets, making wishes, going out with friends, flirting and love. The poem ends with a "note to self" that everything in life has something to love about it, life is a completely beautiful and new adventure every day.
