Favorite Quote:
"Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world."- Ralph Waldo Emerson

and more than sunsets bleed and bow before
the obsession of night

and I profess I do believe
that my mind will replay you for longer than
eternity can address, or lungs can breathe

my ears will replace city life realities
with the sound of your charming chime
patiently I pain away against the dual meaning
of your smiles

we are of the stars, whose only promise is to die
and dearest, death I conclude is heaven's harvest
so I will love you longer than our eyes remain
observant and wide
and the earth our bodies harden

The author's comments:
I fall in love too easily.
