it’s crazy that i’m 25 today.
and today is the first day i’ve looked at a picture of myself and thought i really looked like an adult.
sunset over georgia, from a plane.
there is somewhere within me
a deep and vicious sorrow
that in its blinding shades of darkness
swells up and threatens to drown me
in one unyielding wave.
but as the undertow is pulling
and my lungs are rapidly filling
the flashbacks all begin fading
and i am pulled back up to the surface
allowed to breathe once again
by the grace of that beautiful voice.
- Silas, Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book
i am sorry for your sorrow
and for all the scars that have been
i am sorry for your heartache
and for any sense of
hold onto your love
let shine your infinite light
hold onto your warmth.
