(Contains: strong language)
Earth exists within him
Something shockingly kind
Gentle as the warmth of a breeze
Combing through blades of grass

Like a river rock
Smoothed by cool ponds
The sharpness of anger
Dulls to a whisper

There's a pureness in him
That should not exist
In anything but sunlight
And children's bedtime stories

Yet it stands
Year upon year
Ever moving, ever growing
Ever laughing, loving
Crying and comforting
Tears like droplets of citrus
That soothe rather than sting

And a tenderness
That makes the word "Fuck"
Feel like the exhalation of clouds
You Shouldn't Say 'Fuck'
A poem I wrote for my friend, Nick for his birthday
They've said the sands feel like silk
They were right
They've said sea foam feels like God's breath
And I believe them tonight

I've walked into Infinity
Where a zipper-line crosses the sky
I am not afraid of the ocean's salty kiss
I am not afraid to die
Midnight Ocean
Recently I went to Myrtle Beach and at 2 in the morning we all decided to sneak out of our rooms and walk on the beach. We could see the Milky Way and the complete blackness of the sea blended with the sky. That night will always be special to me.
My machines are broken
So I dried my clothes outside
Now my socks feel like clouds
And my shirts smell like the sky
It seems as though I only write in my "journal" when things are going really shitty for me. A way for me to complain. On the most part, you guys don't really pay attention to this shit, but I feel as though I should stop being a sack of rainclouds at least once a years. So I'm going to name all the good things that happened to today, and good things in the foreseeable future.

-I pet-sitted dogs. 
-The Dachshund, Charlie was so attached to me, he would wait outside of the bathroom until I was done and would shove himself in front of Jaida the Rottweiler every time I tried to pet her.
-Steak for dinner
-Huge steak
-Fucking huge
-My dad and me did a puzzle
-I got a soda
-I marathoned the entirety of Orange is the New Black
-I had free range of Kelsi's tequila. (It tastes horrible but made me warm and tingly.)

-In July, we're going to see Harry Potter World in Universal Orlando Studios
-I did all the extra credit shit for my math class
-My English project will be easily do-able tomorrow because my chores have been finished for me
  • Mood: Grumpy
