I watched a dandelion lose its mind in the wind and when it did, it scattered a thousand seeds. - Andrea Gibson
could you be any more perfect?
when the time comes
to love yourself well
it takes a good solid month
to stop crying
you have to let go
"You- you stay here with me, okay?

Raising your bright against the bitter dark
Your bright longing
Your brilliant fists of loss
If the only thing we have to gain in staying is each other,
My god that’s plenty
My god that’s enough
My god that is so so much for the light to give
Each of us at each other’s backs whispering over and over and over
'Live'” - Andrea Gibson

but I could never make dying beautiful.
The sky didn’t fill with colors the night I convinced myself
veins are kite strings you can only cut free.
I suppose I love this life,
in spite of my clenched fist.

we started laughing. It felt so real and it felt
like we had been friends for years.If only this
could be turned into reality… my life would be
