Favorite Quote:
"Guess now who holds thee!" -
"Death," I said,
But, there,
The silver answer rang, "Not death, but Love."

Listen, can you hear it?
Feel it.
Every single bone will sing
Now you’re shivering,
You’re fingers unwind
My face was next to yours
Almost adjacent
What’s adjacent?
As long as you’re next to me.
Stiff arms and beating hearts
It’s like an un-winnable race
You keep getting thrown back
I just need some time with you
Those dry bones
Cleanse my saddened heart
Will you remember me?
What’s a heart
L*ve is like a swear
A million people nestle near my face
Almost adjacent
Doesn’t matter,
If you’re not next to me
They don’t radiate those warmth rays
Like you do
Can you feel it?
Sense it?
I’m coming home for you.
