>love flood

>   like ivy
   your small hands
   around mine
   on day 1

   ..love flood…

   and today
   i envy
   the dust
   in the streets of La Paz
   to be close enough
   to kiss your feet

for a moment i thought my heart would crack when i stumbled upon that photo – she’s for a year in La Paz – i miss her!
