Once upon a time,
I lived my life
where the sky was always a deep
shade of blue and just like I feared
the ocean, I fear that this was the
only color I would ever see.
Although, blue was my favorite color,
it cast so many shadows and stole
so much light that I was blind to
the endless beauty that surrounds me.
Then one day, you came along.
You caused the sky to crack like
dried paint and suddenly I saw sky
blue for the first time and that alone
gave me so much hope and became
my new favorite color.
You started to cast the type of light
I had never witnessed before.
As I’m sitting in a constant patch
of sunlight with my head tilted
towards the sky, basking in the
warmth of happiness.
I’m not sure if you noticed but
before I met you, I always walked
with my eyes on my feet, too afraid
But you taught me how to look up
and trust I mattered and when I did,
I almost cried at how beautiful the
What was once a miserable dark
blue was now a canvas of pretty pinks,
oranges, and reds.
I tried to taste the colors by stealing
a kiss from your lips; the kind of
kiss that let you know I was yours
forever if you would be mine.
**Confession Time** I may have gone against my own advice this morning and pressed the snooze button. Because of this I am feeling groggier and crankier than normal and so I’m finding myself needing a second cup of coffee just to get me going this week. But we can’t always be perfect and sometimes we need to take our own advice. ❤️👩🏻💻☕️
