Once, Once

upon your chest, I laid down my head

and sweet was the scent of garden green,

fresh herbs: rosemary, basil and thyme.

In nature’s cove

we fit so closely together,

oblivious to the ripening nightshade.

It was all such insanity,

the rapid rejection of a life that could have been bliss.

Love, do not my arteries still beckon to you?

Do not my veins cry for you?

This regret is singeing me,

hot coals pressed upon delicate flesh.

Nothing can stop this pain,

surging like volts of electricity,

like you and I once were.

Once upon your chest, I feel into a slurred slumber–

I am a young and enthusiastic writer, fresh out of highschool and into college at IUSB. I babysit and work and live life to it's fullest. I write. I read. I do yoga. And plan to become. Yoga intructers as well. I grew up on a farm and can't,t wait to move back to the country in my tiny house I have already planned out. Sometimes I'm a little melodramatic but rarely. I'm a spiritual healer, a hopeless romantic, a book worm, and very nostalgic. Thanks for stopping by.
