    she penned people into metaphors, because his name meant water, and he was – stuck in a cycle and deep like the sea, with waves of emotions you could get swept away in if you weren't careful, dangerous – to a point you could drown in those ocean eyes and waterfall voice, b...

    Sleep was slowly coming as I lay under the sky, the cold night air creeping in no matter how I tried, so I curled up in my sleeping bag, dreaming of your smile, and watched a shooting star escape for just a little while. I wished a wish that you were mine, and quickly grabbed the phone. That...

    she sang secrets in song, sounding sad and surprised to see someone so selfless, he saw stars shine when she smiled, so she sang slightly stronger as she spoke via song, signaling her sir of soft somethings she saved for starry skies and she showed him sweet somethings in the sound of he...

    sun kissed with daisies tangled in her hair, singing a familiar tune of strength and innocense with ocean eyes and country roots grounding her in guitar and cowboy boots, so her steps sway in time with the music playing inside her head....

    racing hearts, after hours - in his bench seat, places they should've been - like between sheets, fast asleep, but night time put stars into his eyes and they'd never looked as golden as they did looking up from her lap on a mountain, because he's the type of boy to keep...

    they said your pupils dilate when the “one” walks in the room, but he came in, quietly, gently, laughing so his eyes crinkled up on the corners i’d kissed sweetly another time he’d laughed and i was struck by the way he stood and his shoulders were strong and held promise...

    he was shaped like summer, eyes that shone just a little brighter than they should have, with the arrogance of humility and secrets of hearts he held in the palm of strong, confident hands that spoke louder than words in critical moments of holding on or letting go. and he said it w...

    True love stories are not that exhilarating. Real love stories start with “Once upon a time we fell in love…” and end with “And we went our separate ways with broken hearts…” Every. Single. Time. Heartbreak hurts. I should know. I have this… talent? Curse? Tendency? I don’t kno...

    it was like some sort of dream or a movie - driving away in a mist of white, trees laced with untainted snow. and we agreed that the moment could not be more perfect, unless we rode away in a chariot drawn by some pegasus, because we left as a greek god and goddess, dressed in ...

    he pulled me into his arms, coaxing me with the way his hands moved and his breathing, begging me to trust him while I struggled to control my heartbeat and the butterflies' wings were laced with fear. he held his lips close to mine keeping his promise not to start me on the road ...

    i could see it in her eyes, the flash of determination, the spark of hurt at a memory, the color of broken mixing with healed, leaving her eyes a storm of living, colored scarred. i could see it in his eyes, the deliberate shifting from the scar colored eyes because the pain and the an...

    Dear Friend, I read a book where a boy wrote to you, telling you his life. And he made you sound really nice, so I thought I’d write to you too, because you’re nice and I know you won’t judge me ‘cause you don’t know me. And I’m going to be completely honest in this letter, because I ...

    it takes tiptoes to touch, and taste together. to indulge in infinity. to fall for our fleeting forever. to surrender sanity for sentiment and speech for silence. it takes tiptoes for lips to meet while hearts beat bold. bold and brash and beautiful....

    the world was waiting for something, caught in that silence before the storm. the whole world, waiting. and he said, “let's do something rebellious.” and i said, “let's climb a mountain and watch the stars shine.” and then we laughed at the absurdity of our words, push...

    Japan is words - written, spoken, sung, and unsaid. I think of the journal stashed beneath my nightstand, crammed with pages of lists. Lists of people, places, food, memories and moments I get to keep. Our picture in the Japanese newspaper tells a story and adds to the hours spent each night writing...

    funny how it starts with a heartbreak, and it ends with one, too. ‘cause i was just recovering from him, i wasn’t gonna fall for you. but with those green eyes, just took you one night, to sweep me off my feet… i called you darling ‘cause you wrote me pretty things. i ...

    the world is a lovely place full of beautiful things and beautiful places and beautiful people. things like the way it feels to watch stars from high places. the way rain sounds when it falls on pavement. things like blue eyes and racing hearts. country songs and waking up to a ...

    Define music. The words lash out at me in a contrast of black against white, right against wrong. I ponder the statement for a long time, rolling possible answers around in my head and dismissing them with a frustrated sigh. I don’t remember studying this word from my vocabulary list. I’m beginn...

    You've got eyes that could drive a girl wild, and a way too good to be true perfect smile. So maybe I fell for what I thought I saw, but you're done breaking hearts, 'Cause I'ma tell the world how you really are. Every sweet little thing that you said, that you did....

    so maybe you lost me, but if you’re looking, you’ll find me somewhere between where i’ve been and the places i’m going, in the sound of rain pounding on the pavement, and behind a genuine smile and blue eyes that know. you’ll find me caught up in beautiful things with be...

    The storm raged outside my car window, drenching the world in heaven’s tears and a thick coat of gray. Inside the car, the silence between mother and daughter raged its own storm, as I wondered how I’d got here. The spunky, determined, and cheerful girl I once was had been replaced by a bitter, ...

    i couldn't see the sky, but i was so caught up in your eyes, i don't think i was looking anyways. brick walls on a one way road, leading to another closed door, but we found our way back to that iron gate. and in that moment when you asked my permission, i found a piece of me i ...

    there don't have to be words when butterflies fill the spaces in between lips, hands, and hearts. instead, the beautiful sound of breathing and light brush of cheeks fill the silence. the shooting stars and racing hearts define this moment. there don't have to be words when w...

    i wonder if you’re feeling what I’m feeling. we are complicated. life is complicated. but for one moment – as the sun shines so bright we close our eyes, it’s perfect. for one moment – nothing else matters but feeling you warm next to me and the sun warm on my face. ...
