"i don't love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: i love you as one loves certain dark things, secretly, between the shadow and the soul."
-Pablo Neruda

we wrote with only vowels
and all those foul
scintillating scaly words
one would find
in shakespear.

and you cried and i slept
while the sun
turned milky and cascaded
broken rays upon the silver
hills and steaming forests
till it fooled me and i thought i loved
the moon.

you emptied me of everything
now fill me...with you.

"It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."
