I am happiest when embraced by feeling.
A soul gasp at the end of a song
Drinking cheap red wine and blowing smoke out of dorm windows
Climbing lifeguard chairs long after the sun has set because the view up here is closer to the stars
Staying up past our self-imposed bedtime
to read or giggle and hold each other because
we are two adults, still learning and we are best friends.
I feel life’s greatness
tugging at my heart
The presence of the moment
The realization of
“this what I’ve been dreaming and working for”
My little daydreams and longings
were found in my present all along.
