restless soul

the moon's light dances through my window, I watch it as I lay in bed

there are so many beautiful things going on inside my head

I close my eyes and exhale, sinking deeper into my sheets

my heart feels lovingly optimistic about all of the new souls I will soon meet

for my soul has been thrashing within me, making me feel alive

it's ready to emerge now, to jump out and thrive

it was held captive in the dark for the longest time

and it's so excited to come out and shine

it quivers at the idea of tangling intimately with another again soon

I open my eyes now and gaze up longingly at the moon

a smile forms on my lips, as I realize that loving myself makes me whole

that it is the absolute key to releasing my restless soul.
