Come Down

Sarah Doughty

“Darling, with you, I forget
what it means to breathe air.
I forget everything but you.”

This love I feel for you drips from my tongue like honey. These words spill from my lips like rain, warm and sweet. All this blood rushing through my veins boils over and turns my insides to steam. A heated anticipation of promises yet to be fulfilled. Of all those sinful things you’ll do after the sun goes down past the horizon and the moon rises into the night sky.

Waltz of Nature

Charmed Chaos

When the world weighs heavy on this tender heart,
I get out in glorious nature and take a walk
to feel the warm sun upon my wrinkled face,
to marvel at the majesty of graceful trees,
swaying in an elegant waltz with the summer breeze

I hear the soothing trill of doves perched among the leaves
chasing elusive shade throughout the sweltering day
as they rest, take a break from the scorching heat
I continue my stroll, to find the balance I seek

With each footstep, my worries become lighter
I find myself smiling at the happy brilliant flowers
and marvel how they stand tall in daybreak’s hours
never faltering or worrying about anything at all

Early on, I didn’t know I aspired to be wise. Learning is one challenge that never ends. Lessons bombard us irrationally throughout the entirety of our reality.
