Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson

His love felt so safe

that when he threw me out to the ocean

I drowned

my gargled 'I love you' s

didn't make a sound

it was there beneath the waves

I realized my mistake

I let him steal my breath

my lungs were not his to take.
