I love the marks that a woman’s clothes leave on her body. I love the red indents and the proof of a long day before she even opens her mouth.

Tight socks circumventing ankle bones. A watch cutting a bit too tightly around a pulse. The alluringly simple bra straps; wire pressing up into the impossibly soft undersides of breasts; the cryptic clasp nestled between shoulder blades. The imprint of lace and elastic on the taut tender tendon of the inner thigh. The geography of jeans around the hips and trailing along the legs like railroad tracks. The line on her cheek from when she fell asleep on the bus home.

I love the luxurious sigh when it all puddles to the floor, shedding this artificial skin. Remnants of weariness leave whispers on the body.

And after all she has been through, she still comes to me and allows me to trace these whispers with my fingertips, eyes, lips. She doesn't cover herself and doesn't hide and lets me in.

We leave the lights on.
Exhale
I wrote this a really long time ago, but I've always liked it.

My weary-boned wanderer,
you are solitary in your empty room,
in your unmade bed,
in your hollow heart.

You await the slow orbit of the earth,
the rise and set of the sun
to ease the static in your head.
No more can you be a fighter;
strong, brave, bold, fearless.
You are tired.

Of the undertow,
of the rain,
of the gale.
You are waterlogged and aching.
You want only peace.
You want only rest.

Come sit by me,
blue-eyed and brimming.
Some storms span lifetimes,
yet even a typhoon must rest.

So come sit by me,
your soul a restless sea.
Still your waters, anchor your heart.
Let me harbor you.
Beacon
For those who are having a rough time. You are never alone. :heart:

To you who brings me peace:
It has been three days of wading through not-quite rain,
and of a loneliness that trickles down the back of my neck.
But the liquid brown of your eyes
and the downy rumble of your voice
is enough to carry me to sleep.
Sweet Chariot
I wrote this a couple months ago, but wanted to post it here, too.

Hello my dears! 

It has literally been half a year since I've posted a journal! As always, thank you so much for the comments/faves/follows. I'm not really active on here anymore, but I appreciate it all from the bottom of my heart. :heart:

A few current life updates: 
:bulletblue: I'm two days away from finishing my first semester of college. It's been busy and strange and interesting, and I have a feeling next semester will be even busier.
:bulletblue: CHRISTMASTIME. :la:
:bulletblue: I'm headed to England on the 26th for two weeks to see this guy.  

I need to ask a huge favor of those of you who have been following me for a while (or even of those of you who are new): what are your favorite five pieces that I've written? Like, ever. Let me know! 

So, what's going on in your lives? Are you excited for the holidays? Any awesome plans with friends and family? I MISS YOU PEOPLE. :tighthug:

Always, 
Indigo

I read like an absolute maniac. Music is my oxygen. I'm a hope(less) romantic. I love meeting new people and trying new things because there's just so much in life. I will always and forever be figuring things out and there are some things I'll never figure out, but that's okay. I will dance to any kind of music, with anyone, and anywhere. Even if I don't know the lyrics, I'll try to sing along with them at the top of my lungs. My friends are the most wonderful people in the universe. My family puts up with me like no one else, and I love them for it. I believe in magic, love, the impossible being possible, and that everyone has a skeleton or twelve in their closet.
I don't think that I'd like to be anyone else but me.

I measure life in love.

You're very kind for all of those! I'm sorry for being so late, I haven't spent a lot of time here in the past few weeks, or months, or something. :heart:

We must catch up soon! I hope you're well. :)

You're quite welcome!

I'm not on here much anymore either, but I check in every few weeks for various housekeeping things.

I hope you're doing well, too!
