have you ever held someone’s hand and felt your soul slowly slip
and melt right through their fingertips until, eventually, you forgot
you even had a hand in the first place? the next time it happens,
remember it. remember it. you told me that all the time. ‘remember it.’
this. now. and i did so much remembering that i forgot where to even put
my thoughts, where to let all those flickering moments land.. and
eventually i just forgot. but we loved each other. i remember that. i
remember all the twisting, bursting, desirous ways your heart and mine
danced with one another.. like sweet melodies getting lost in summer
the earth takes a breath and slows down just enough
for the chilled air to slip between the folds of your sweater
and you hurry on
as the trees tremble
sacrificing their leaves to the dirt one by one by one.
living in a city as hyped as berlin comes with having visitors pretty much all the time. while i'm seriously over the sightseeing part, i love having the chance to show so many of the people i love all the places i love in the city. another great thing about having visitors in berlin is that it often allows me to discover new amazing places that i otherwise wouldn't know about. this time, i loved the room i had booked for my visitors - a cozy retro-styled studio at nest apartments on eberswalder straße, a perfect location in lovely prenzlauer berg. the owner lisette sifon designed the apartments at nest with a great eye for detail, wonderful vintage furniture finds and lots of love - and you can definitely feel that right from the second she opens the door.
