Blushing Violet

… And as hard as I try, I can not remove the blushing violet indentation from your soft lips on my collar bone - for fear of removing the structure all together - and I have taken to harvesting bouquets of honeysuckles that are sprouting through my rib cage, for your eyes only. At first I feared that they would entangle me here, with no where to turn for relief; however, they are holding me down to sweet green pastures when I would be running straight for the smoldering California hills. 

Growth is painful. Change is painful.But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.
