Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Sometimes,
I think of you
during nights
when there is no sleep.
And I
count our memories
on stars,
taking your name
on my fingertips
until it leaves me
breathless.

  9. I loved the tactile nature of this, and especially the line “count our memories on stars”. Beautiful and poised, thank you for this. I am glad to have discovered another exceptional poet.

  10. memories are more numerous than the stars sometimes…And sometimes it takes a whole life to “try” to forget those..

  11. “When you feel the world is crashing
    All around your feet
    Come running headlong into my arms
    Breathless
    I’ll never judge you
    I can only love you
    Come now running headlong
    Into my arms
    Breathless”
    Reminded me of this song🙂
