How do I explain

I’ve known you for a thousand years

Without ever knowing your name

Or your face

Or your shape

How do I explain

This feeling that I’ve tasted

In dreams so long before

This dejavu

Too simple to

Explain away with reason or with rhyme

How do I explain

The way my soul cried out for you

The very moment I saw your face

The way my heart lit up

With the very first hello

Before I even knew your name

How do I explain

That some things are just made to be

Like willow trees and rainbows

And babe…

things like you and me.

Although this is my favorite piece from my heart, it’s not my strongest bit of writing. But it was written in a moment of pure love-born elation, and although the verse is simple and somewhat silly, it is one of the pieces that captures my emotions in the moment in their purest form.

I rarely write “happy stuff”. I am far better at the melancholy. But this bit here… this was my soul speaking to another soul – one that has been increasingly detrimental in my universe. And it is one of my favorite pieces because of that.

I haven’t been posting lately – things have been strangely busy as the world seems to have ceased amid the Covid-19 crisis. I will pick this back up again soon. In the meantime, loves, stay safe. Be good to one another. And stop hoarding toilet paper FFS.
