I won’t apologize

I’ve met too many boys who loved my surface, but feared my depth. I’m a crazy, chaotic maelstrom of laughter, warmth and happiness, sadness and nostalgia. I’m a hurricane of colors, feelings and words, twisted and intertwined in one sweep of existence. I’ve accepted my complexity and I won’t apologize for it.

I want to be swept away

Not in any unnamed islands, but in your
arms. I want to go on a voyage, not in
the seven seas, but on your bare back.
I want to fall deep in the crevices of
your heart and fill those gaps with my love.
I want to discover every freckle on your
body and map every curve of skin
I don’t know where the edge of grace is
But my world starts and ends with you.
