Favorite Quote:
I have a choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. or I can go mad by ricocheting in between. --Sylvia Plath


your afflatus words dribble
from celestial skies, spilling with inspiration
from the elements, (jewels or weather, i don’t know)

people tell me that they’re bullet-proof
but no one tells me that they’re
diamond-proof, safe against those
daggers made out of wedding ring hearts.

(can you cut through all the objects known to mankind?)










…(what about child-kind?)


The author's comments:
This was inspired by people who can spill lovely words as easily as humans spill blood.
It is also my attempt at explaining the inexplicable.
"alexithymie" simply means it is difficult to describe a person's feelings out loud.
