Yes, Let's

PJ Returned

Slowly pressured over time by former members of Ficly to return. Hi.

Cheer Captain of the High Seas in the League of Awesomeness.

“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”

Let’s get messy;

Let’s run around

In places we’ve never experienced before;

Get lost in delirious abandon.

Let’s get wet;

Let’s find a lake

And jump in, shoes and all,

Let’s share towels and shoes and body heat;

Let’s dive off cliffs

Watching the Earth rocket towards us,

Unafraid of falling.

Let’s get naked;

Let’s press our skin together

Until two become one and one becomes insignificant;

Let’s wrap up in sheets and cuddle under duvets

And walk around with our bare skin on show

Like no one was watching;

Let’s dance

The dance that has been rejoiced throughout history,

As if the world beyond our bubble doesn’t matter.

Let’s get quiet;

Let’s become silenced

By the sheer awesomeness of the sky on a clear night;

Let’s become enveloped by the stars,

So that even the fire stops crackling

And though our backs lie heavy on the ground,

The sky is a sea,

And we float upwards,

And I remember you, and my hand grabs yours,

And we drift heavenwards together

As if the day wasn’t perfect enough.

Yes, let’s.

I feel like this piece deserves a very poignant comment, but the only thing that comes to my mind at the moment is "It was incredibly beautiful to read." :-)
