older blue



 so we write poems about other people
who were braver than we knew
and we dream about sending them to the people we love
but somehow we never do.





then we write songs that don't quite make sense
because the words can't quite get through
when you are afraid of someone hearing them
and realizing that it's true.




and i've finally come to that moment
when time stops and the sky is older blue.
and i realize that someone will be forever
but i don't think that it's you.


last poem like this for a while guys. i love writing them. but i'm just a little girl yet. xx

  1. XD You tired of all the comments that say DON'T MARRY THIS PERSON DON'T GET MARRIED YET? XDDDD I love you, kiddo. And I love these poems, even though they sometimes make me wonder what's going on in that brain of yours. But seriously....the rhymes. Eurgh. Where did you get all this talenttttt??? My crew is all growing up and I don't know what to do about it because we aren't really little pirates anymore. Cry.

    Okay enough of the sads. That last picture of the purple flower is killer.

    1. I AM WEEPING. i really miss you. and i'm glad you're my captain, no matter what happens. how did i find myself on board this ship? we both know the answer. i've missed the wind in the leaves, and i heard that sound today. God is good. x

  2. "Someone will be forever".....love that phrase. I've come to the same realization about someone I thought was my forever. It's hard, but exhilarating to not know who that person could be. Thank you for sharing!

  12. Wow. Um, I'm not sure what else to say, because yeah, those first two stanzas are like exactly me - wanting to shout out love to everyone but hiding instead, wanting to share my heart but waffling about the weather instead. But it's one of my resolutions - to be brave and dare to say what matters, to not neglect the opportunities God gives every day.

    Anyway, you definitely have a talent for photography and word-crafting. I won't complain if you do write another of these poems soon. :)
