Forget Me Not...

My favorite color is blue.
Which seems silly
considering how much I dislike 
the feeling.

Today,
I found myself
searching
for 
m   y   s   e    l    f
within the words
I carry.

-solace-

What I found,
instead,
were reminders
to stop grasping
for love -

Let go
       and
share it.











Forget-me-nots 
are not 
my favorite flower,
      after all,
simply because 
they sprout up across Austin with wild abandon.

No.

They are my favorite 
                 because
they are given to me
from the
 delicate grasp
of children.

-shared-

The way our lives were meant to be.

Love,
me

Of course!

You realize that's just the way the words first fell down on the paper? The writer in me still wants to fiddle with them.

Print, keep, love. I'm honored. :)
