Selfishly

When the day has hit me hard
When disappointment spreads itself
with wrinkles on my forehead
baring roots into my heart


I search for your face 


I want to remember
what it felt like
to be the bud of your awe
To feel the shining tenderness
of your affection
while I did 
nothing special
at all   

SARAH currently lives and works in Edmonds, Washington. She would describe herself as painfully shy by nature but has learned to overcome it by simply pretending not to be. She says it mostly works unless it doesn’t. When she’s not hanging out with her sisters, she enjoys running, eating, reading, taking pictures and staying up too late.
