Take Up Space

“You take up space in my mind. And it seems no matter what I do, my mind drifts to you.”

You take up space in my mind. And it seems no matter what I do, my mind drifts to you, like a tide. It feels as though I’m standing at the end of a rocky shore with icy wind against my face, staring at nothing but the reflection of the pale moon upon the water’s shiny black surface. And I wonder where you are. I wonder if you see the same moon. If you have a safe, warm place to lay your head. But mostly, as I look into the night, I wonder if you’re thinking of me too.

  1. Beautiful Sarah! I meant to ask, but I always forget… For these posts, do you write the excerpt sentence, and then embroid the rest around it? Or do you write your paragraph and then take out the one sentence that stands out? I’m just curious…
