The Forest

We laughed in marvel at the dust between our toes
Heads thrown back in our hammock, dangling like pendulums
You said we wouldn’t fall
But I did fall
Into the sky reflected in your eyes, like twirling topaz
Glistening as we danced, danced, danced
Amidst electric trees
And I wanted to weave my fingers through
The spaces between your own
When we felt a celestial breath, like beating wings
That moment when The Forest pulsated
Within our flesh and bones.



Do not fool yourself into thinking that you are some how to blame for someone’s unfaithfulness.

Do not compare yourself; Do not cross-examine yourself; Do not sit and wonder in what ways you weren’t pretty enough, or good enough. Or what it was you could have done differently.

People cheat not because they are lacking something in their relationship, but because they are lacking something in themselves.

It is not your fault that castles cannot be built on eroded foundations.
