Love Swept The Breeze Away


Fresh and cool it entered

then swayed and left,

or seemed to,

me and you,

the saddest


in the sun.

But the heat that kissed the space just above my skin

told me the truth

I didn’t know until then.

Time entered and sighed and I listened so hard,

I pressed my ear against the

tight spot  in my heart.

Feathers ruffled, a moment shuffled,

the breeze stung my eyes and made me cry (it didn’t mean to).

Breath filled me and called me and kissed me

on the inside.

Love shifted and swayed and seemed to say,

a word that only

the tight spot,

deep in my heart needed to hear.

      1. In all honesty, I’m not entirely sure what that word would be. But I am certain that the concept of one word’s impact in this application is something that drives into the core of our emotions. That one word when we’re on the edge of ourselves can be all it takes to send us somewhere we never thought we’d go.


      2. I had a friend that carried a notebook everywhere she went and asked all those she met ‘if you could take one word to a desert island what would that word be?’ she wrote every word that people came up with down. Not sure what her objective was or even if she had one…. but i thought it was interesting and dedicated! Theword that worked for me in that moment was ‘is’ don’t even really know why. could speculate but really it just felt right….still does actually!
