Planting

Once

the lean arms of a willow

wrapped around my belief

nothing was going to change

there would always be

this moment

where your eyes took me in

hungry and unapologetic

and I

like most who are young and eternal

watched myself on film

blinking against bright sun

unaware of shadows

  1. I could quote the entire piece, really… you’ve said so much without saying much at all, but for some reason, these lines truly grabbed me:

    “the lean arms of a willow
    wrapped around my belief
    nothing was going to change”

    Lovely piece, love.
