Her Valleys Will Fill Me.

by Poet on the Piano   Dec 27, 2017


I still believe in love,
somehow,
after mourning a man
twice my age,
after consenting to
what I thought would
make me mature,
but only left me
hollow.

I have already moved
mountains on my own...

She will be the
new path I take,
footprints on a
snow-kissed trail
that nature promised
we could be the first
ones to touch.
And I haven't met her
yet, I don't know her
ethnicity or how she
dances
but it is a woman I want
to share my life with.

It won't matter
people's expectations
or their definition
of who I should be.
I know I do not wish
to lay with a man anymore.
I want to sleep in her arms,
curved lips and hips
catching the sunshine
even on the cloudiest
of days.

This is how I imagine
my future...

When others ask me
how I see the world,
what my eyes will
someday behold,

I only see her,
not the other half of me
but someone new altogether -
a river of light
I've never traveled to
before.

    Just...WOW.

    Okay I know I say that a lot...but seriously...WOW...

    I've read this over and over again and I'm still covered in chills. The hairs on the back of my neck and arms are standing up and I'm just sitting here now with this heavy, bittersweet weight in my heart and tears in my eyes. Finding ourselves is not easy. Knowing what we want and how to be our true selves is an even bigger struggle, especially when we are healing from past wounds. But finding the strength and courage to accept yourself for who you are, and to heal, and to have this amazing, beautiful image of your future love painted so vividly and with so much emotion and desire is just...phenomenal. I feel this piece so much right now...and I am in awe. You have moved me with your writing...and to the point of rambling...so before I keep going, I'll leave you with this;

    A stunning write so deserving of a win!! Congratulations!!

    Keep your chin high and your smile bright! Much love to you!
