The sun may burn skies
But I’ll sink back into my cave
Why can’t I love the dark?
What’s wrong with being different?

They look down at me
What's wrong with being different?
I am just unique
So, I don't act like the norm
I'm me, and that's good enough
Don't just exist; live

With the rain pouring,
I'm me, and that's good enough
for each storm-swayed tree,
as speckles of remaining
morning float through the grey sheets.

laying in hammocks
morning float through the gray sheets
could life be better?
drinking lemonade when the
sun is out never gets old
Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent people ignore.

watching clouds when the
sun is out never gets old.
they come in all shapes,
and colors you never knew.
clouds truly are beautiful!

in the open sky
clouds truly are beautiful.
Behind stormy eyes
too, but I caused only one.
Their downpours make me quake now.

river in reverse,
this downpour makes me question
'does losing the sun
make you love her more or less?'
are we all just light-longing?
i can't love you if you don't know the difference between teal & dark cyan
you should know i am a time traveler
there is no season as achingly temporary as now

I watch sunbeams stretch --
aren't we all just light-longing?
wanting day's summer
to last, heat invites itself
in a cloak of humid air.

Yesterday I slept
in a cloak of humid air.
Only it could soothe
my equatorial heart
beating into the summer.

she slept with wolves without fear, for the wolves knew there was a lion among them.
