If love isn't a game, how come all I'm seeing are players?

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not.

Micheal, close your mouth! We are not a codfish!
~Mary Popp


the fabric of the sky infinite
is wearing thin
against the smoothness
of the heavens
shedding strands of rich velvet
to fall down
and coat this humble world in

darkness gentle
worn places left there
show with pinpoints
glorified eternal,
beauty of the sunlight deep
shining through

Who is man
lowly, last-born
to contend with
all the brilliance of the heavens
compare himself to the majestic stars
All the honor
false glitter of achievements
here on humble earth,
placed before infinity
dwindle in his eyes
to the dust that they
always have been
