"It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."

i found myself lost
in the constellation of freckles
across your bare shoulders
we counted to five,
swinging our legs and
holding our breath
carefree with the taste of summer

in my long hair,
reflecting yesterday and
as if they would come
and go

like the waves
of that ocean we loved
so much
holding on to sea salt
and sleepy eyes

the smell of
carefree and happiness
coating our senses
holding our breath
counting to five
just one more today.
