Particularly In Particular

Here I am
A candle amongst flashing lights
Accidentally curious 
Safe on the sidelines

You poured your worries into a glass
Eyes on me
I heard it shatter free 
Fingers laced
Minds encased 
An existential crisis painted on your face
I held on, you didn't hold back
The way you spoke
The questions you asked

With you I ran faster 
Sprinted towards impending disaster 
Heart beating, lungs screaming
Fast, furious, and fleeting

Your impression hung
While dreams come
And now I know that 

Once in a lifetime
Is just fine

I'm a California girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and always has her head in the clouds. I currently live in the Netherlands and am attending university at a small honors liberal arts college in the south. I have an artist's soul, a corny sense of humor, and a ravenous mind that hunts down the meaning of life everywhere I go. I love traveling, learning, questioning, experiencing, and am an anthropology and political science major who loves to write and make up stories about the absurdity of the world we live in.
