Day 551: Safia

we spend most of the time that we converse caking.
but the truth is- there is not a woman in this world who terrifies me like you do-
you have the power to trun me inside out and leave me dry-
and every day that you love me instead i feel the pain of the ocean between us.
i cannot think of a time when i've been near you that my body hasnt shook from the inside out.
you leave something there after the waters that follow your breath come through.
i want to someday be the kind of woman that is not afraid of the fall after the leap-
i remember when i could say that were true for me.
today is not that day.
tomorrow, it may be too late.
