Sunshiney Days

I am in my happy bubble. Everyone around me is having all sorts of emo moments, and I feel like a douche sometimes for not toning down my happiness when I'm with people like that. But then I think, screw them, I'm ECSTATIC and I'm not hiding that! I love my happy bubble. And the best part is, the bubble may be fragile, but it's not vulnerable, because it is protected by the world's most incredible person. Here's to you, Noodle-Head; you're the best!

"Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you. I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being."
- Hafez

Your life beat beneath my lips
and each second stretched out its fingers to grasp
onto another and another and another
until they became links in the chain
of daylight that bound us together
The sound of your heavy exhalations
drowned out their words of
slowing down and pace and speed
and from within the tangle of
mouths and necks and limbs
there rose a thought so perfectly synchronised
And in that moment
your eyes spoke with an intensity
that rendered lungs useless
leaving me to breathe with my hands
You held me fully
not like water or glass
no fears of loss
just certainty in your arms
that wrapped around my welcoming form
And I knew. And I know.
I can hold my arms aloft and fall
but never hit the ground.
