Good mourning (dedicated to my honeybunny)

Each summer night, I run.
Chasing or being chased by the sun.
Your name bittersweet, burned on my tongue.
You’re the reason that it’s numb.

Your fingers buried deep in new-growth, coiled tightly around tightly coiled hair.
My fingers tracing your veins like a map of Motown.
I run my palms across Woodward and Grand River, from the backside of each Palm to the bend of each elbow.

I rub my feet on your stomach and I feel the warmth of your spirit churning beneath your skin. It melts me and I blend seamlessly into you so much that you are more me than I am some mornings… But tonight I’m running.

The murder of the sun leaves blood across the sky and I lie with you to mourn every night. I run because whatever sought the sun may conquer me in this darkness, in this abyss. The moon rises victorious, triumphant every evening to sulk in shame at her return everyday.

We’ve seen many moons, you and I, haven’t we? We’ve seen the leaves swept from trees in autumn; the buds break the surface in spring; the grass burn in summer; and snow lay earth to rest in the wintertime.

We watch the slain sun rise to reclaim the kingdom. A new beginning to love, to prevail. And you lace me up so I can run again.

If that aint love….

Today, my boyfriend went to the drug store voluntarily to get me some more pads and tampons.

I had to hug him for that one. Baby, you’re awesome.

Right lane, left turn.

I’m always so conflicted
So “right lane, left turn”
So relentless and red and random.
So embarassed for the actions of others.
So eager to look cool, to be smooth and easy like English.

I’m always so under
So breezy and fickle
And alone even with you touching me
Hugging me.
So impatient and passionate about everything, everyday.
So manic and high strung and long winded and pretentious.

And I am not sure how you deal.
But you deal.
And that’s why I love you so much.

1. Do not date a boy who does not care what your favourite song is. The boy who does not care what melodies ignite your heart strings with love and wonder while staring at passing street lights on the last train home, will not care if it’s 2 a.m. and your heart is breaking.

2. Do not let anyone fold you up like last winters tattered scarf and put you away with the others in a neatly labeled box. Even when there’s thunder and the sky is crying, you are your mum’s favourite summer dress. You are to wear yourself like you believe it.

3. We are all stories. Write yours how you want. Make today’s chapter about purposely taking the wrong bus and discovering a tiny blue tea shop, or folding origami paper hearts over and over on your window sill. Just make sure it’s something you’d enjoy reading.

4. I will always try to save you.

5. Someday you will be 19 and lost and heartbroken and you will think about a place you’ve seen on TV or heard or read about in a book or seen a picture of. You will feel your heart drop into your stomach. Go there. For a day, a month, forever, but it’s important that you go.

6. The world is so beautiful. Do not let the slumped over homeless man outside the convenience store or the stories of guns and bombs on the television let you believe otherwise. We are all so lost. All of us. We all show it in different ways. I write bad poems. Others start wars. There is no inherent evil, only good people searching too hard.

7. I love everything about you.

8. Money turns people into liars and emotional ghosts. School grades are an inaccurate representation of you. Measure your life’s worth in how many times you’ve nearly lost your life to laughter, how many books you’ve closed with happy tears in your eyes, people whose lives you’ve brought joy to, marshmallows eaten, or countries visited.

9. Don’t ever let anyone tell you to stop crying. Cry if you want to. It’s okay. You’re allowed.

10. My best friend once told me that the most important decision he had ever made was to love everyone and everything. He’s the only person I’ve ever known to have a viewable aura of light around him. Don’t forget to love this world, to love people. Be light. You are already mine.

10 things I will tell my daughter. - Julia LaValley (via steadies)

I love it.
