Favorite Quote:
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist - Friedrich Nietzsche


They stare deep as the night and dark as the hidden day.
The cats meow with the beat of your heart but no one knows what they say.
You’re corrupted, violated, filthy, betrayed.
Your hair has been touched with the ash of a cigarette,
and your eyes have seen much worse.
You eyes glaze over me, wondering, reflecting none of your emotions.
You’ve disfigured my way of thinking, my second nature.
But as I sit here and stare at your nocturnal face,
so tangible and tacit with covered hidden innocence,
I muse over your vulnerable heart and come to terms with my own:
It beats when yours beats.

The author's comments:
You know you truly love someone when they're so corrupted that you don't even care. You just want them to be safe.
