No tengo miedo de vivir,
mucho menos de amar,
amar sin poseer.
Necesito cada vez,
Lo que tengo es éste amor en el pecho,
Que me abre como alas en viento,
No tengo miedo de quererte y no tenerte,
Tengo espacio para todo,
como la playa y el mar.
Espacio para amar,
Para sentir llorar,
Para cantar y aceptar,
Todo lo que me es dado,
¡Sí, sí, sí!
La confianza está en mis ojos cerrados,
en mis pies descalzos.
Soy un cielo abierto, soleado
y todas las aves que vuelan en él.
Soy todo el cuerpo bailando entre ríos.
Cantando: Sí, sí, sí!
i'm sure i'll be fine
because i need to believe that. i know it's a bit of a lie; i don't really know what will happen, how i'll turn out. but the alternative is to tell myself i won't be fine, & that just seems worse. if any thought about the future is a sort of lie, i'll take the happier one

i love you because of your depth, because things are never simple with you, because i know you and yet i keep discovering you, because you don’t try to make me love you through games or manipulation, because you’re the most giving person i’ve ever met, because you listen with your heart, because i felt invisible before you saw me, because no one has ever really seen me, because you’re real and also a dream at the same time.
I have always considered myself a writer first & foremost, but that luxury was taken when my private & public writing was used to humiliate me & further the stated goal of taking my child away from the only parent he has ever had, zero custody, zero visitation, etc, during insane court proceedings in the deep south where I fought for over two years to make sure my child was not taken and placed into an insanely abusive household. So I have tried to force my creative expression into visual art. Sometimes it is rewarding, like when collaborating with other artists, as in this half frame film swap with @icantstandpickles.
Sometimes I just want to write. However, I want my child to be safe more, and even the most innocuous writing was used. It still blows my mind. It blows my mind that the abuse of the legal system & use of the legal system to further abuse my child and myself has gone on for nearly 6 years now with no end in sight. But yeah I should stop allowing myself to speak at all.°
