Favorite Quote:
“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”

This world is strange
these human, yes
they are something curious.
My love,
tell me
why these humans
are angered at the sight
of our hands interlaced?
Why do they damn us
when I kiss you with
all, ALL of my love?
These humans say
because I am the same,
we are forbidden to love.
When my tears pause
for your smile,
when I laugh because
love is our beautiful thing,
when the world feels right
with my blushing rose in my arms,
Yes, these humans
they are strange,
hating our love.
