beauty love poetry women

As bad as it seems

It’s chaos out there

Where we all know moments

Drawn across our souls

Like razors

But they’re fleeting

And instead

We take turns at happiness

Not always comfort

But they are a breath on

A deep dive inwards

I’d swim oceans to you

The sight of you

Is a door opening to

A finer world than this

So when these turns arrive

I quote  Vonnegut in my head

Put the kettle on

Remember it’s never

As bad as it seems
