Better.

Do you remember the promises -the ones we made as we lay counting the squares on my ceiling?Do you remember the words you spoke -the ones that were so gentle and soft it made my ears tingle?Do you remember the tears -the ones that we shed because our lovewas too intense for us to handleDo…

Strains from the inside.

The doctor gave me stronger puffers today He says that there’s still a strain in my chest That strain is from missing you, my love missing the sounds of your laughter. Those random breathless moments are from missing your heartwarming hugs the sporadic moments of pain – a way of letting me know it never…

One with you.

I became one with youthe moment I proclaimed You Lord over me I became your heartthe minute you ran towards me Somewhere along,I lost my way; ashamed to find your faceBut your love found meyour peace, wrapped around me tightly  Never in my broken girl’s wildest dreamsdid I see such a beautiful redemption happening to me.I am one…
