yours (a zejel)

My written words are now sweeter. My sword sharper, my soul softer. Your love made me better, braver.

Forest Orchestra

the sweet tweets of the birds, the crisp cracks of dried twigs, the whispered whistles of the wind, the sounds of the forest orchestra. oh, surreal and soothing flora and fauna. yet they can’t calm me like how your heartbeats’ thump, thump, thump can. — 05.23.2017 ©2017 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer. All Rights Reserved.
