Heyoo friends, this week has been quite a bit busy as it’s week of mock trial state competition, so I decided to share these two poems I’ve written recently, instead of skipping out of posting all together. I hope they make you smile and maybe stop to notice the sunset tonight.
Until next week! (:

angels fought to bring you breath
angels fought to bring you breath first cupping your fresh peeled cheeks, she kissed your cry with salty tears. an angel caressed warmth into your limbs arms strong and scarred like ancient cities but they were softest with you and rocked away your new found fears found new with the world birthed open rough were the angel’s hands and heavy were her anxious eyes but when they smiled, they smiled as a hugged sunrise, squinted corners and crinkled nose with colored cream and warm spreading rose. like the soil in the garden, enveloping womb - home - she held your heart for long enough so you could be your own she fed your soul with songs you still in memory hear but an angel’s hair blossoms in whiter plumes every year for the angel who fought to bring you breath filled your cracks with her broken pieces of wealth
this evening with solemnest ceremony, the sun drapes herself for supper in darkest shade of haze and veils all her warm honey skin up her limbs and weighing them in deep dusky blue but wordless on why as if the gray grain of endless February is not grim enough to defy. slowly with slender pink fingers the sun laces herself up with a long coat and darkened firs to the pale strip of exposed neck Venus is first to appear - the sole gem framed in the valley curve of her collarbone then spreading with stars from her vanity box scatters a dusting of diamond stones snow like colored powder brushed off her lifeless cheek falls ever gently as she fades with words she will never speak certainly I never heard the night approach, but the moon finishes: a glistening broach.
