My Heart

My heart is a glorified curse.

I think an evil queen was at my birth

That mistook me for a princess

And put a spell on me.

Because while they say it keeps me alive,

More often than not I think it might kill me.


My heart is a raging thunderstorm.

Lightning cracks and thunder booms

Inside my chest. 

Unruly and daunting, I slam the shutters,

Afraid that the raindrops will get someone wet and 

Terrified of melting.


With you, 

Love is a silent promise.

Which is to say,

You feel it in the spaces in between.

Quiet glances, sweet smiles, and warm touch.

I never feel alone. 

You break the curse and calm the storm.

Favorite Quote:
"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

That's so lovely.
