Favorite Quote:
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

You were my Vegas,
drip dropping into my veins—
pulling me away from the monochrome.
And I was intoxicated,
blurring the lines of your technicolor.

"I'll be your mirror," I said.
You moved your left hand, I moved my right.
You raised your leg, I lifted mine.
Nothing else mattered.
I can't get this loop out of my head.
You dancing around-
pure ecstasy.

You sped up my heartbeat
like cocaine until suddenly,
the rug was pulled from under my feet.
The IV from my vein.
I could not stay in Vegas forever
gambling with the strings of fate,
but what happened will always be-
trapped in the luminescence
of your glow.

I will always remember you:
a star stuck in a lone galaxy, shining.
I may not shoot across your mind like a comet,
won't be injected into your memory...
and it hurts, but softly-
like slipping a needle under my skin.
