catching feelings

weather is contagious; that they should disclose

you can’t help but smile when a loved one radiates energy

spreading from their fingertips and into your toes.

it isn’t surprising that sadness causes the same infectious chain reaction

but it is misery that sticks with you longer, long after the source of gloom is gone

taking away all satisfaction.

out! out with the woes,

out with dolour! out with the

murk, see how it flows.

after a grievous storm there are two options in store

either all is iced over, feelings turned to frost

or back to the sunshine from before.

    I swear to god, everything in, and about your blog, and the feeling it emanates is just… so beautifully perfect- like gahhhhhh, I’m dying.

As always, your feedback is so sweet and truly flattering, you have no idea how happy I am every time you leave your thoughts in the comments.
