When All You Knew Was The Rain

I don’t know when I first fell in love with him.
From spring to summer,
Summer to autumn
Autumn to winter
Do you know the exact day the season changes?

They say when a relationship ends love stops.

Tell me,
Do the seasons stop changing
when you move from Mexico to the arctic?
Or do you simply learn to enjoy the snow,
when all you knew was rain.

 

Mornings Like This

On an early sunday morning,
while waltzing to the sounds of birds and coffee brewing
Illuminated by nothing but the break of dawn
he leans into you and whispers
“I dont make a habit of dancing with princesses,
But i promise to make you queen of the dance.”

and so you smile.
That was the moment you realised
love was not about giving away all you had.
Love was about growing to be a better version of yourself.

He could hold your waist,
or stare deep into your eyes.
But the steps
those steps were all you.

Easter Vibes

Easter.
A holiday that once meant purity and prayers.
Today I have learned contrariwise.

When you enter a club, at eleven post meridiem, you can learn very much.
You feel the comfort of people
between the sweaty bodies, the smell of cigar and alcohol.

Is your heart broken?
It doesn’t matter anymore.
All that matters is the sweat rolling from your naked back,
making a trail down your waist.

Tonight you are wearing a titillating dress.
Your mother doesn’t like that kind of dress.

Have you ever felt what it is like to run out of breath?
The few seconds the times stops and you wonder if you are finally part of it.
Part of the everything and nothingness that the world has to offer.

Letting the sound of music guide you in waves.
In this moment it doesn’t matter how you look.
You feel like a dancer.
And this dancefloor is your stage,
and the spotlight is on you.

Forget your thoughts.
Right now you don’t need them.
All you need is the rhythm radiating through you,
and this handsome stranger approching you.

Let him hold your waist and pull you close,
right now,
your bodies moving to the symphony of the beat
and
for a moment you forget
all about
him
or even that you are dancing with this handsome guy,
for a moment you become whole.

With the universe.
With the world.
Right now, you are the air, the mere essence of life.
You are the stars. There is no sky without you.

Let the night take you away.
you are no longer that naive little girl.

In this moment, you have learned so much.

You get so much comfort
between the sweaty bodies, the smell of cigars and alcohol.

Is your heart broken?
Now you know better.
It was never broken.
They can’t break you.
Only you can.

He.
Her.

You are untouchable.

So dance some more.
Let the sweat roll from your naked back,
and down your waist.

Tonight you are wearing a titillating dress.
Your mother doesn’t like that kind of dress.

Loose your breath to the sound of music,
your thoughts are no longer the same.
All you need is the music radiating through you
and now
the handsome stranger is gone.

You no longer let him hold your waist
because you can hold yourself.

Rightnow you are bare.
Naked.
Vulnerable.

But strong,
wiser,
and invincible.

Right this moment.
You know better.

You became whole.
With the universe.
With the world.

Right now,
you are air,
the mere essence of
life.

You are the stars.

The is no sky without you.
