In Bed with Mia: A Midsummer Daydream

In bed with Mia

Photography by Koury Angelo – Text by Mia Michaels

IN MY BED… I DREAM IN BETWEEN THE SHEETS OF WHAT CAN BE.

I LIVE INSIDE THE ROYALTY OF MY OWN PERSONAL CASTLE.I BREATHE IN MY OWN ESSENCE AS I CRY LAVENDER TEARS THAT NEVER STAIN.

EVERY FEATHER I LAY MY HEAD DOWN ON REPRESENTS EVERY DREAM I HOLD CLOSE TO ME.

I KEEP IT SECRETLY AND SAFELY TUCKED AWAY UNTIL THE WORLD IS READY FOR IT TO SHIFT…

EVERY TEAR THAT DRIPS FROM MY TIGHTLY CLOSED BABY BLUES WATERS THE SEEDS

INSIDE MY PILLOW TO HAVE THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH TO EXPLODE.THE ANTICIPATION OF WHAT WILL COME…

THE KNOWING… THE COMING… FALL ON ME… FALL ON ME… FALL…THANK U 4 LIFE… THANK U 4 BREATH… THANK U 4 THE UNDENIABLE LUV I FEEL FROM U…

THANK U 4 PICKING ME UP WHEN I FALL… TO THEN SET ME UP YET ONCE AGAIN

TO SHINE BRIGHTER THAN B4… THANK U 4 MY THEN… THANK U FOR THE GIFT OF DARK SHADOWS THAT KEEP ME CHALLENGED… U MAKE ME DANCE… U MAKE ME FREE… U MAKE ME, ME… I WILL SWALLOW THE GIFT OF NOW AND MARINATE.

TRY AND DISSECT MY HEART… TRY TO CRUSH MY METATARSALS… TRY TO PULL AND TUG AT MY LIMBS UNTIL THEY SNAP… TRY TO CONTROL ME LIKE A PUPPET… I WILL GIVE YOU ONLY ONE SURRENDERING MOMENT AND THEN I AM GONE…

YOU WILL NOT FIND ME… WHEN I LEAVE… DANCE! CELEBRATE THAT MOMENT I GAVE TO YOU. DANCE WITH ME… FEEL MY FLESH AND SMELL MY SKIN…

NOT THROUGH THE METAL SCREEN BUT THROUGH BLOOD, BONE, SOUL AND SPIRIT…

DO YOU KNOW ME??? MY EYES TELL YOU EVERYTHING BUT YOU CHOOSE TO JUST SEE ME THROUGH THE APPLAUSE… I AM NOT MY WORK…

I AM MERELY A CHOSEN VESSEL… I AM… DANCE WITH ME FOREVER
