To Be Restless

To Be Restless

Heavy against the windows, the opaque night isolates and infiltrates, sends the dogs flying to my side, and even in the warmth, under the wash of the firelight, their ears hear coyotes and the pressing sky plays with their minds. With the lights off I can ease my mind, see through the gaunt mask of night, that the darkness is not thick but light and coyotes navigate it like reflections and shadows alike. Their cries send me reeling, fighting my urge to hide, knowing that warmth and flames will not feel so much like flying. I climb until I could be flying and let the stars replace the thoughts in my mind. The trees do not understand my warmt

you are too good

you are too good

You are too good for poetry. The spark in your eyes and the gentle curve of your mouth cannot be captured with words. The joy in your laugh and the vibrancy of your smile do not fit in the musty lines of a poem or the wavering strokes of my pen. You are too alive to be pressed between book pages like a flower. You belong among the pines and the deer, your arms a form of art in the brisk air, the sunset painting the sweep of your lashes with russet and the ridges of your cheeks with rose. I will set down my pen and join you there, peel my heart from between these pages and leave the book behind: so I, too can feel the breeze by your side
See all

ITS ALMOST LIKE IM NEVER ON THIS SITE

ITS ALMOST LIKE IM NEVER ON THIS SITE

I'm pretty sure a whole two years have passed since the last time I was active on here, which is a bit wild. Or a lot of wild. To update: I'm now only semester away from graduating college! Holy shit! Since my last post I was trained as a barista at my job, and then a shift-supervisor, I broke up with my old boyfriend and started dating someone significantly better for me - we've now been together a year and he moved in with me a couple months ago, which has been WONDERFUL. I started learning karate and it became a huge and essential part of who I am. I traveled across the country by myself and spent four months in the wilderness of Oregon,

So

So

it's been a long time, Deviantart. Since my last post in the spring, one of my close high school friends, both of my grandpas, and my cat passed away, I started studying Buddhism more seriously, changed my majors and entire career plan, worked 2 terrible summer jobs, found a serious part time job at a coffee shop, started my first ever serious relationship, totaled my car, and considered dropping out of college. To summarize, it's been crazy, and I have not taken very many photos. All recent photography is from my new iPhone and is not good enough for this site, although they are important to me, as memories. I have not been doing traditiona

Well

Well

This is my first time home in a month and a half, which is weird for me, living a half hour from home. First time I've been homesick since starting college. But I just told my parents, finally, after about a year of holding it off, that I don't consider myself a Christian right now, and that I don't even believe in God right now. Pretty hard conversation to have…especially with my mom, because she's very religious, involved in the women's ministry in my church and on praise team and the like…but it needed to happen. She's treating me like normal though, so that's good. No crying, no screaming. No shunning. My dad didn't even car
