a misfit in most places 
I find relief and liberation
in the company
of strangers

I can pretend
I'm just like them

give it to me

give me your pain 

let me carry it for you 

I am not suffering 

but you are 

give me your pain 

I know it is not mine to carry 

but please

let me help

song in my body
spring in my step
heart so full
it's going to explode
in this moment
life is worth living

i like many things about swimming 
but what i like best 
is finding weightlessness 

i'm buoyant  
unburdened by my own thoughts 
unbothered by what the world wants from me

watch me

I'm going to do it
I'm going to do it all
I'm going to have it all 

Don't ask me to slow down
I'm hurtling forward at top speed

I want nothing in return
for loving you
I watch you
smile and laugh
live your life
with so much joy
I don't mind if I'm not in it

all of me

if i could 
i would sit down with you 
in a quiet corner  
and hold your hands in mine 

and in that slot of time 
i would give you 
all of me 

later, we will forget and move on 
life will take over
we will get busy

but one day you will remember
that you and i sat down 
in a quiet corner 
and shared this moment 

one day you had 
all of me

you're okay

you're okay, they said 
you're doing fine
you're doing great
and she died while
crying out that she wasn't
