Not Every Day Is Beautiful..




Not every day is beautiful,


But you are.


I can’t wait for some days to end.


But you’re my beginning


My middle


My meeting place.


Some moments I just want to be alone.


Even though every moment with you is perfect,


It doesn’t always feel like that though.


Not in that moment.


When plans fall over


When no one sleeps


When I’m overwhelmed.


You may deplete me some days.


But you complete me every day.


You’re the bags under my eyes at all hours of the night.


My tears of fatigue.


You’re also,


My heart


My breath.


You’re the ground that brings me to my knees


The ground you walk on that I adore


My grounding.


You’re my weakness


And the strength that I need


The build up


The break down


My vulnerable.


You are the tune I hum


My scream


My follow


My fall


My finding.


The broth of my bones


My skin.


My thoughts before and after.


You are mine but not mine to keep


But you keep all of me.


Even though I ache.


Even though some days are so damn hard.


Even though I doubt I’m doing this right.


Not every moment is beautiful.


But you are.


You are the promise of love in a tired storm.


Even though I may wish some moments away.


You’re the hands of the clock I will to stand still.


And I am at the hands of you.
