Sometimes Love Is Simple

couple in bed reading, happy couple, couple in love, loving you, loving you forever, our love, poetry
Toa Heftiba

It’s not in the way we kissed
sticky-sweet like honey
warm and thick in the back of my throat
or the way we laughed
when you licked that ice cream from my fingertips
as if we’d known each other years,
and not just a few short months.
It’s not in the way your eyes traveled over me
like I was a map, an uncharted highway
and you were a car with a full tank of gas
and all day to drive.
It’s not in the way you pulled me into your life
with a dizziness, and I spinning, spinning
no choice but to throw my head back
and hold on.

It’s simply in the way that you knew me
before I decided whether or not I wanted to be known. TC mark

Life Getting Stale? This Book Will Inspire A “New You”

You leave
because you have to,
because leaving is necessary,
because your survival
depends on letting your soul shift
in the wind like a grain of sand.

Become the person who is open and soft, not harsh and hidden. And watch how the world opens to you in return.

“This poetry collection gave out a lot of realizations. I just have to be brave. I need to have strong heart, and a wise mind. And just because things are a mess right now, doesn’t mean they will stay that way until the end.” — Muggleboooks

Hi! Here’s Some Amazing Poetry For You

“I hope your learn how to love yourself the way you love others — unconditionally and without hesitation; deeply, and from the softest parts of who you are. Because isn’t it a shame, that we are so quick to forgive the humanness in someone else’s soul, but we often forget to forgive ourselves. Isn’t it a shame, that we fight for others, we believe in them with such intensity, and such hope, but we often forget to fight for ourselves.” — Bianca Sparacino ✨

“Seeds Planted in Concrete is a very empowering read. It reminds you that you should love yourself first before anyone else.” — Alyssa
