"here it is: one more. one less. another wasted love story.
i really loved this one.
when i think that it’s over; that i’ll never see him again like this … well, yes - i’ll bump into him. we’ll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, and act as if we had never been together.
… then we’ll slowly think of each other less and less. until we forget each other completely … almost …”
let go of me: i’ve
been the last on your mind for
the very last time.
"I’d say in some ways he’s the most mature person I’ve ever met, and in other ways he has not yet been born."
i will only touch you once.
and it will only be in passing.
no use calling me back
you will have plenty of time
to rehearse and remember
to convince yourself
we’ll never part.
your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgement wage war against your passion and your appetite.
would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody.
but how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?
you watched me.
you watched my Dreams.
you watched my Hand,
you watched my Lips
and as i lay
the Banks -
& watch the Unfold:
as i waited

"the world is objective, logical, universal, factual, scientific.
my world is subjective – it’s emotional, it’s personal; it is perceptions, thoughts, feelings, dreams. it is the belief system that we carry. it is the myth that we life in.
the world tells us how the world functions: how the sun rises; how we are born.
my world tells us why the sunrises; why were we born."
"bring me a higher love"

Fallen & Drowned
let your Grow
Birth round me,
and legs –
past grinding teeth
& eyes & feet;

where I Stand,
"i’ll give you everything you need, but i don’t think i need you."
"truly to enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself."
