Tucked under the covers of the night
The warmth of our library nook hugs us tight
Flipping through pages of poems until the one just right
Something connects, and our voice shines the light

With peace running through the air
Such love in a memory is so rare
The souls of the books weep
As dreams endlessly sleep

Poems so delicate and true
Some memorized but forever new
Phrases we’ve cradled in our hearts
From youth to now, becoming a Universal vow

The twinkling constellations
Formed spirals over our heads
While the character within created stable foundations
And the magic eternally spreads

The comfort of our parents loving eyes
The purity of their souls never told any lies
All could disappear, even the skies
Because the love in these poetry nights soothes nostalgia’s cries

Ace + Geo (my little bro 🤗)


It was so fun to collaborate with my little brother on this piece! This poem is based off our family tradition when we were younger of reading poetry each night. Those poetry nights shaped me into the person and poet I am today. It feels very full circle that my brother’s first poetry experience is this, it was such a pleasure writing with him. Do go check him out, he’s full of joy vibes and definitely played a big part in my journey of becoming fearless and free!!!
