Capable Radiance 

If there ever comes a time
When you think
I don’t take
Great care of myself,
Tell me,
And I’ll prance who I am
Right past you,
Let you watch from a distance.
Over time, the realization
Will settle in, and
I will radiate over your skin.
It’ll be then you’ll understand
Just so we’re clear,
I’m okay,
And having someone love me
Is a gift I give them
Because I want to,
Not because I need to.



White magnolia

Virgin to the light
Found craving the heat
Lost in the strength of leaves
Shining source of simplicity
Finally unfolding her elegance
Sun found waiting patiently
No inhibitions linger
Spreading her petals for him

Knowing she was meant for his arms
