When does something stop being platonic and start being toxic?

Your mind is a masterpiece
- I get lost in it every time.

The stars seem to align
- But it’s a cloudy night.

My heart still beats the fastest for you
And my brain has not yet mastered how to prevent a smile when you walk in the room
I miss your skin and the way it feels against mine

A photograph from the day we began;
The thought of the way we make love;
A day without any hint of you -
And suddenly my tears keep me company in your place

Whether you like it or not, I'll be in love with you
Believe or not, I'm still in love with you

Overflowing, then exploding, then bursting

a poet
acts as a mirror,
an instrument
to cast
a translucent reflection
not one's own sentiment
but upon
the kaleidosopic realities
of the world

be the light you want to see...

I don't even know why I still write about you

that keep us together

or make us fall apart .

open up -

the things unspoken

bite back in the end


The world’s worst weapon ;

I love you .

I will .

Im sorry .
style is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Garcia Lorca.

style is the difference,
a way of doing,
a way of being done.
