A Bouquet of Clumsy Words

  A bouquet of clumsy words: 

You know that place between sleep and awake 
Where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? 
I wish we could feel like that more often. 
I also wish I could click my fingers three times 
And be transported to anywhere I like. 
I wish that people didn’t always say ‘just wondering’ 
When you both know there was a real reason behind them asking. 
And I wish I could get lost in the stars. 
Listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door.
Let’s go.
—e.e. cummings

Gosh, I just love that.
So with 5 minutes to spare before I head out the door, here is my attempt at my own bouquet of clumsy words:

You know that moment when you close your eyes on a sunny day,
Soaking up the sun, letting the warm breeze kiss your cheeks?
I wish I always felt that free.
I also wish I could laugh to the point of tears
With my very best friends every single day.
I wish people were brutally honest about who they are
And didn't hide behind ever-changing masks.
And I wish I could run full speed ahead
Into my bright future without an eating disorder.
Let's go.



  1. I wish I could be as brave and honest as you are kels. Those are beautiful words. I hope you got to soak in some sun today.

    1. Thanks so much, Becca! I hope you are doing great. :)
