Love Story

Everyone deserves a love story

But are any of them ever clean?

They are guaranteed

To take your breath away

.

They are sure to change you

To challenge you to grow

But if you’re not careful

The wrong one

.

In the wrong place

At the wrong time

Can ease into your weak points

And destroy you

.

Sometimes, it feels

Beyond recognition

But even in a good love story

As it grows, rises, and ends

.

There are remnants of your former self

That crumbled in the process

Of breaking and healing

And shaping new beginnings

.

Together or apart

There are always new beginnings

And the parts of you that broke away

Are somewhere in the stars

.

You set out to know someone else

But in the process

A new You emerged

And you have to get to know her, too

.

Love seems like a thing to have

But it is an entity

That transmutes you

Into the heart creature you were meant to be

.

And the story

However brief or however long

Lives in your heartbeat

Alters your pathways of reason

.

You are perhaps wiser

You are perhaps stronger

You are perhaps more You

You are perhaps cleaner

.

You traced the depths of your emotions

Into your palms

You survived hellos and daydreams and goodbyes

Perhaps one too many goodbyes

.

And in the end

Invisible ink is tattooed on your skin

The secret moments of your own love story

As you look to the horizon, whispering, “Let me write another.”

I made it to three hundred followers

I started this blog in 2015, after I graduated from college. One of the many pieces of my writing journey. It really makes my day when people like my posts or leave comments. It can be nice knowing that my thoughts, poetry, art, or videos resonated with someone. The people blogging in the WordPress community are so creative, kind, and thoughtful (at least the ones I have come across). It is so nice to see so many people sharing their work, ideas, and stories.

Like many people, I find myself at times wanting to take a break from the internet. (I’m rarely successful at taking such breaks, but hey, I try.) But this blogging platform has been overall positive. I can go onto my feed and see poems, personal essays, and artwork at any time of day or night. Thank you to the people who make this corner of the internet so positive and inspiring. And thank you to the people who have followed my blog or interacted with my posts.

I don’t have a niche blog (I always get bored with trying to write those). I’m just here to be myself and post whatever comes to mind (it’s usually poems). This has been a space where I can say what is on my mind and I am thankful for that. Thank you everyone ❤

The Two Princesses Who Fell In Love

[This is from a collection of family-friendly LGBT poems I’d been working on. In honor of pride month, I figured I’d share this one. I think we could use more stories about girls finding their princess charming, don’t you? ❤ 🙂 ]

.

There once were two princesses

Who fell in love

Princess Mae liked to tame dragons

Who breathed fire in the sky above

.

Princess Lotus liked to garden

And cared for her flowers all day

I’m guessing that you’re wondering

How she met Princess Mae

.

One day Lotus was watering Daisies

The sun was hot, but she didn’t tire

But then a dragon swooped from the sky

And started breathing fire!

.

She had big, scaly wings

And great sharp claws

She didn’t follow any rules

She didn’t follow any laws

.

Fire drifted toward the ground

But Lotus wasn’t scared

She just wanted her roses

And her buttercups to be spared

.

The dragon was about to land

On a patch of blue tulips

But Princess Mae said, “Stop right there,”

And put her hands on her hips

.

She held a silver shield

And a golden lasso

The dragon tried to get away

But she was far too slow

.

Mae captured the dragon

And gave her a potion to make her sleep

“Don’t worry,” the princess said to Lotus,

“I’ll take her to the mountains, then set her free.”

.

Lotus gave Mae a great big hug

And thanked her for saving her flowers

The next thing she knew, the sun was setting

And the two had been talking for hours

.

They talked about dragons and flowers

They talked about parties and tea

They talked about battles and kingdoms

They talked about magic and the sea

.

Lotus thought Mae was the bravest,

Smartest, most beautiful princess of all

She asked if she would like to have tea

In the morning, just after dawn

.

Lotus agreed, then used her magic lasso

To take the dragon away

And, as promised, the two of them had tea

The very next day

.

After tea, Mae showed her the garden

Where they laughed and sang and ran

And that is how the love story

Of Princess Mae and Princess Lotus began.
