gratitude

By Katie Spear

(n.) thankful appreciation

never was a hugger
never held too tight
never let the warmth of another
linger long

i won’t tell you i love you 
just any time 
the words won’t fall soft
from my lips
like a kiss 

but know 
that it’s true 
when my lips pull upwards 
into the slightest smile 

when my eyes soak up your light 
and my head falls back in laughter 

and when my hand 
touches your shoulder 
it means i love you five times 
over once for each finger 

i want you to know that i’m
(adj.) feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness 

it fills my body 
with liquid gold 
and i’m searching desperately for the cracks 
to seal them before it drains out

It must be odd for...

I kick around the dust...

There is a horrendous roar...

if the mountains call for...

when you’re at the bottom...

I love you mint chocolate...
