East

casting my eyes to the east
I looked for you
felt the wind lift my hair
caress my cheek
kiss my neck
was it you?
I sighed
for I want you
you’re all the best parts of me
you are the sun to my branches
the pull of my tide
the stars of my nights
I love you
and that has forever changed me

  1. You use nature so effectively to help tell your stories. I really enjoyed this one!
    And by the way, I wasn’t able to leave a comment on your Rock Climber piece, but that one hit really hard. Amazing writing, as usual.

    1. hhhmm… maybe the comments are turned off on it for some reason. I’ll check. There was another one recently that was like that. But thank you. The rock climbing one came from a place of hurting. (Plus, I miss climbing.) Thanks, Puppeteer. You’re the best.

      1. Just a heads-up (because a few other bloggers including Fandango & Pensitivity101 have written about it) – an account at Digital Ocean is reblogging different bloggers’ work without their knowledge (yours and mine included); good thing we both used the copyright symbol on every post, so that helps.
        Plenty of bloggers have already complained though, so hopefully it’ll be addressed soon
