I have always been one to believe in chances, fleeting moments. But this is not ‘love at first sight’—this is more.
I kissed and kissed until I could almost forget how restless I’d become.
I write because there is nothing else I’d rather do than to breathe life into paper with words.
Maybe you leave simply to find the answers you’ve held inside of you all along.
What you hold in your heart is your story, your truth. Do not be afraid of it – of the words you will speak, the thoughts you will construct, the blessings you will bring and carry.
Jacqueline Ann’s ‘Water Lilies,’ is a poetry book written with elegance and ease that reminds you of God’s unending love and encourages you in your walk.
There is an ebb and flow
to the way we move—
together and apart,
in and away.
Your lips taste of stories I’m still learning to write.
Take me back to this: flying
above the Chicago skyline
people like specks of dust
lights like summer fire flies
and wings as my arms.
I want to unselfishly love
all the selfish parts of you.
