    It's a feeling
    That there is no way
    I already tried to fool myself
    I did everything to forget
    But the truth is that I only know how to love
    Y O U

    you belong among the wildflowers
    you belong in a boat out at sea
    sail away, kill off the hours
    you belong somewhere you feel free

    Someone will remember us
    I say
    even if in another time
    Sappho translated by Anne Carson
    Wouldnt it be wonderful
    if all our letters could be published
    in the future
    in a more enlightened time
    Then all the world could see
    how in love we are

    It was spring when we walked together
    and you taught me the names of the flowers.
    Lily of the valley, pear blossom, Carolina jessamine.
    You turned your face to me and I felt that I had
    loved you since the billowing sheet of Chaos.
    How am I to go on living
    after having felt that?
    O, do you remember. Our many, many befores.
    Maybe you hear them, stirring
    from a room in you that is older
    than womb. You and I did carry
    candles down castle corridors as children once.
    And we baked bread, and we filled pies!
    We wore moonstone on our twisted fingers.
    You were boy and I was fish
    and when you pulled me from the water I glistened
    and your father was proud.
    In the kitchen that evening you cut a lemon
    and squeezed a sliver
    over me, giving me
    moon, rain, the promise
    that we would live again someday.

    You ask my why all of my writing sounds
    sad, but you don't understand the way it
    manifests. The way my words are strung
    fairy lights, in an empty house at
    midnight, trying to make all of the dark
    edges beautiful again.

    ‘Tis a fearful thing
    to love what death can touch.
    A fearful thing
    to love, to hope, to dream, to be –
    to be,
    And oh, to lose.
    A thing for fools, this,
    And a holy thing,
    a holy thing
    to love.
    For your life has lived in me,
    your laugh once lifted me,
    your word was gift to me.
    To remember this brings painful joy.
    ‘Tis a human thing, love,
    a holy thing, to love
    what death has touched.

    I wanna know if you bleed sometimes
    from other people’s wounds,
    and if you dream sometimes
    that this life is just a balloon —
    that if you wanted to, you could pop,
    but you never would
    ‘cause you’d never want it to stop.

    I want you to tell me all the ways you’ve been unkind.
    Tell me all the ways you’ve been cruel.
    Tell me, knowing I often picture Gandhi at ten years old
    beating up little boys at school.
    If you were walking by a chemical plant
    where smokestacks were filling the sky with dark black clouds
    would you holler “Poison! Poison! Poison!” really loud
    or would you whisper
    “That cloud looks like a fish,
    and that cloud looks like a fairy!”
    Do you believe that Mary was really a virgin?
    Do you believe that Moses really parted the sea?
    And if you don’t believe in miracles, tell me —
    how would you explain the miracle of my life to me?
    See, I wanna know if you believe in any god
    or if you believe in many gods
    or better yet
    what gods believe in you.
    And for all the times that you’ve knelt before the temple of yourself,
    have the prayers you asked come true?
    And if they didn’t, did you feel denied?
    And if you felt denied,
    denied by who?

    my [grand]mother moved out
    of her body
    decided it
    was no longer worthy
    it couldn't contain her laughter
    she couldn't obey the house
    rules of human
    her spirit
    that young & fresh fever
    wanted to call the night her dance club
    wanted to try on new clothes
    stay out later
    my [grand]mother now wears the world
    dresses herself with the tall grass
    blushes her cheeks with red clay
    she laughs & a forest fire awakens
    she laughs & every mountain bows
    to her sharp thunder
    she laughs
    & each cicada begins to sing
    last night Saint Paul was cloaked in steam:
    fog traveled from some distant heat
    no, i think
    you've got it all wrong
    someone must have asked my [grand]mother
    to dance
    —DEATH AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT A SONG

    "Whatever you give a woman, she will
    make greater.
    If you give her sp.erm, she'll give you
    a baby ;
    If you give her a house, she will
    give you a home ;
    If you give her groceries, she'll give
    you a meal ;
    If you give her a smile, she'll give you her
    heart.
    She multiplies and enlarges
    what is given to
    her ; so if you give her any cr.ap,
    be prepared to get a ton
    of sh.t. "

    77% of girls think they're ugly.
    50% of girls think they're fat.
    100% of society should stop insulting girls on their appearances.
    Some of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen ;
    Look nothing like supermodels.

    Dear my love, haven't you wanted to be with me?
    And dear my love, haven't you longed to be free?
    I can't keep pretending that I don't even know you
    And at sweet night, you are my own
    Take my hand

    Please leave format credit to 1986!
    The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and says : “Here is your home country.”

    i hate the fact that they told you how beautiful you are. not because it isn't true, but only because they used it as a way to get closer to you. a shower of compliments that made you feel unique, made your soul glow, and made your heart feel safe. only to turn around and hurt you with poisonous actions that don't fit all the sweet words. i hate that they told you you're beautiful, because when i tell you that you are, you remember the last time you were called beautiful, and feel the opposite.

    Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
    Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
    Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
    Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
    I won't let nobody hurt you
    Won't let no one break your heart
    And no one will desert you
    Just try to never grow up, never grow
    up

    More and more I found myself at a loss for words and didn’t want to hear other people talking either. Their conversations seemed false and empty. I preferred to look at the sea, which said nothing and never made you feel alone.
