Favorite Quote:
"You create your own universe as you go along." - Winston Churchill

Once I met a mistress of the moon.
She had eyes like evergreens
And wrists like rip tides.
I could tell her my delicious secrets —
The lightning in her fingertips
Or the magic of a loose tongue.
But it’s not my place
Even if she is a perfect poem
It’s not my place.
She’s not ready
to leave the storm-clouds
just yet.

Self-destruction can feel terribly safe. It's hard to understand. Sometimes patience is the only way to help someone.
