Heart changes

Mountain ranges

I’m still somehow always amazed

Something budding is there

-ADVERTISEMENT-

Electric in the air

I can’t say I’m certain, or that this for sure is worth it.

But I do think this is as close as it gets to perfect.

Climb the peak

Drink from the stream

The way it felt on that rock and you next to me.

You are the diver

I am the sea

All encompassing transcendence, making it difficult to breathe.

You’ll find treasure in depths unknown but know you don’t have to do it alone.
