let 'em go


fighting words.

they spill from my mouth, rattle in the air that's so warm i can hardly breathe. i refuse to let them go. i refuse to just...be still. water trickles down from the pipe, flowing gently to the valley, and i reel at the sound of it.

i'm a summer tree

i grow fast and strong and i stretch every leaf to touch the sun.

but then, even summer trees wither for the winter. they too must bow their heads beneath the stillness, beneath what they must become.

i cannot just die, my soul explodes.

this summer will die. she will go warmly, burning everything to auburn and gold.

but you, fierce little tree.
you shall be under your God.

so be still.

you shall see another summer.

xx 

i hate to let 'em go.

  2. I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO GOOD SINCE I saw the comment on my post and knew you posted. *wiggles eyebrows*

    this one is mine. i'm going to steal it and bookmark it and read it on the days that need it. *screams*

    the wind is blowing fierce and the leaves are flying all over and it makes me laugh. oh man. because the trees are trying to hold on to the leaves in that fight, man. trying and failing. but I know they will come back. our God is faithful. they will come back. i have hope in my bones and i know these things. they are promised. LIKE BAM GIRL WHAT.

    see you in a few weeks, see you soon, see you in Eternity, yeah? because that's where we're headed. Home.

    (i may be in denial that goodbyes actually exist whoops)

  3. I've actually run out of things to say. "Amazing" doesn't cut it. "Goals" doesn't describe my jealousy of your talent. "Perfection" is an understatement. <3

    I don't even know what to say really. But just know that your writing is really really good and it really strikes a chord and it's really inspiring and beautiful and thank you.
