Lit #Poetry

Your

presence

feels

like

a

cool

breeze

to me

yet-

You lit my soul on fire

the very moment our eyes met.

Your words are my ocean –

the salt of them stings but

it’s clear that they bring healing

and I’ve found

a brand new devotion to living.

Your embrace is like lavender,

it soothes my inner child,

& the fierce but tired woman

who protects her,

When your hand held mine,

it felt like a reminder-

To breathe,

and to remember,

That

today

will

also one

day

be a memory.
