a raw collection of words from my heart

fearless love

magic from tumblr

i will tell you the things i am afraid of.


i am afraid of the dark when it spirals into oblivion,
of the light that blinds the tender eye,
of second before the storm,
of the song that shreds the heart.

i am afraid of the bright music i hear when you laugh,
of the sky that colours your brown, curly hair,
of your kind voice that says hello,
of the sea that reflects your smiling eyes.

i am afraid.

but, let me tell you what i love.


i love the dark that casts wandering shadows on my face,
the light that patterns the dusty floors,
the storm that rages with passion,
the song that sings through the air.

i love the warmth of your laughter,
the sky that beams lights of gold and orange,
your voice that rolls like music over the hills,
the sea that we splashed in that morn.

i am afraid, and love.
i love, and am afraid.

let me show you it's okay to be both.

this post is dedicated to you all because one hundred of you beautiful cupcakes decided to follow along. and it's also dedicated to the start of 2016, so it's appropriate :)

thank you thank you thank you my sweet little peas for ONE HUNDRED FOLLOWERS
((you can't see me right now but i'm like dancing all over the place))
i adore you all, and i'm so glad i made this journey with YOU.

i couldn't have asked for anyone better to cheer my days up with incredible comments, and read my posts, and appreciate my writing even when i didn't, and forgave my awful hiatus(es) when i didn't have anything i thought good enough to post. i might not have met you in real life but you, YES, you darling, are incredible.

i am so thankful to God for you!
and, darling, have a smashing 2016.

  1. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. i love you so much. also that 100th follower happens to be Becca and she's actually a irl friend. *snickers evilly & also out of love* she's super cool.

    But oh my gosh I love this sososo much. LIKE. *melts into a puddle under the sun* It reminds me of the "perfect love casteth out fear" verse. But I totally get this so much. I am afraid I am afraid I am afraid. I am afraid of loving passionately and feeling all there is to feel, but yet I love "the light that patterns the dusty floors." like owajwhng. it's just so good. oh man. every line. *thinks about it all* you got it, hun. <3 <3

  20. Incredible as always. <3 This reminds of a time when our school principal told us that the opposite of love is not anger, the opposite of love is fear. And I thought that sounded really impressive and poetic and all, but both anger and fear seem to be cousins of love. Maybe the real opposite of love is indifference.

    Congrats on 100 FOLLOWERS! :)
