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.
