You

I cover you in prayers.

I cover you in kisses.

I cover you in love.

I prayed many nights for you.

I cried many nights for you.

I lusted many nights for you.

I can not get over you.

I’m  the other half of you.

You thought you knew

at the time I thought I knew me 

turns out… you ain’t my type 

I don’t like the way you look 

definitely not the way you feel 

when I think of you I start to itch 

 So bye-bye ugly blue sweater. 

Be a Star

I’m a star but not according to you

you don’t look in my mirror 

It’s all kinds of lit 

No extra stuff to spice it up 

just me being me 

My spirit is feeling up all the empty space

I’m behind the door in the back of the room 

looking directly at you 

You don’t see me but I you can you feel me

I’m the smile that creeps across your face at a memory 

I’m the melting when someone says just what you needed 

I’m the high you get after yoga 

The sleep you get after you get off the plane

I’m the chills you get when they find your spot

I’m the star 

You see me small but I’m a big deal 

Just back here gleaming 

waiting for you to recognize me. 

Earth

i am grateful for the wind

and the sun light the moon

and the stars the birds 

and the bees the plants

and the trees the dirt 

and the grass the warmth 

and the cold air 

i am grateful for nature the one who heals 

 and eventually calls us home. 

Sprinkle me over the earth 

when I’m gone so i can in a way always live on.
