Hold on to your seats, because L.H. Cosway is here to steal the show! Day #13 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


I know, you’re probably gonna be like “this is getting really repetitive Ari”, and I’m #SorryNotSorry if it is because holy. fucking. gawd, today I bring you LH freaking Cosway!!!

OK, let me just briefly tell you why having Lorraine here gets me so excited- you see I was 15 when I first read a book by her, and I. Fell. In. Love. Because Lorraine’s writing reaches out of the pages of the book and drags you inside kicking and screaming, and you don’t even notice when an entire week has passed and you’re re-reading her series for the 7th time in the last 10 days. That is how crazy this woman drives me with her stories. There is literally not one book of hers that I did not absolutely adore, and I have read all of them.

So yeah, I HAD to have her here because let’s face it.. how could I have all my favorite authors here without having my second most dearest one?

Exactly I couldn’t.

So here she is, with her poem inspired by what Emma left her.. let’s get on with it.


“Love, real love, wasn’t empty, grasping hands, or lies that felt like truths, And it wasn’t perfect or neat or always easy, It was a rising sun on a new day, It was endless possibility.”
—Emma Scott // RUSH

L.H. Cosway—

Real love is messy, tangled, and knotted with many thorns,
Not a perfect square, but an ever-morphing cloud,
Sometimes bright, the sun shines through,
Other times dark, a storm brews,

Real love is unpredictable,
We grasp when it dangles out of reach,
Then one day we catch it,
But there is always something missing, even when it’s perfectly right,
And there is always something perfect amid the problems in our sight,

Real love is a rising sun,
Some days it leaves, but it always returns,
It is endless possibility,
It can be a wonder and a truth,
And though it can be the hardest challenge of all,
We will never stop searching for the one with which to fall.

L.H. Cosway

How fucking perfect is that poem anyways eh?! I’m not surprised though, because everything this lady writes just gracefully jumps out of my laptop screen, grabs my heart and gallops away. Just always.
