"There are limitations and there are protocols and I’ve been warned that I’m not supposed to threaten or beg for pieces of someone’s soul."

Richard Siken, ‘The Long and Short of It

"My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean" -unknown

Can't you feel it
we're just a team of dreamers

wishing for a story
like the ones you read about
a fairytale
with a happily ever after

we've got our heads in the cloud
and our feet rising off the ground
and we're just so set on believing in magic
we'll do anything to get it
to be able to see it
feel it, touch it, hold it, have it
but that's what makes us so special

because we're the believers
we're the ones
who see magic for what it is

we see it in the kisses that young lovers share
we see it in the clasped hands of wrinkled fingers
we see it in the singing birds
in the the birth of a baby animal

it's in the smiles we share with friends
in the way our heartbeats stutter when
he's near

it's the way every thought is driven from your mind
the way you stop breathing
the way all you can focus on is him
his smell
the way he feels beneath your fingers

it's the way you can being having the worst day ever
and a smile from a stranger
will completely lift your spirits
remind you there's hope

it's there in the kindness of a stranger
who lets you cross the street
or stops to let you through

it's there in the chat rooms
where people who have never met
reach out to each other
comfort each other
possibly save others lives

it's there in those who speak up
who don't let others be bullied

it's everywhere
in everything
in every breath you take
the air flowing in out of you
is absolutely polluted with magic
smothering everything around you

but I think that magic is most abundant
around love
love is above all else the prime source of magic

the kind of love a mother feels for their child
where they would do anything
absolutely anything for them

the kind of love young lovers feel
where everything seems perfect
like the world is theirs
and they'll be together forever

the kind of love people who have been together
for years and years feel
because they know they'll always be together
even after they die
their souls will find each other

the kind of love friends feel
when their your support against the world
and you know they'll stand next to you
against everyone
you against the world

it's love
love is everywhere
magic is everywhere
we breath it in, and drown ourselves in it
it's a drug
it's euphoric
lifts you up and you never want to be put down
it's addictive, it's dangerous, it's completely absurd
but without it
the world as we know it
the people that we know
everything we need to survive

without love
it would all die
