Favorite Quote:
'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'
― Virginia Woolf, 'A Room of One's Own'


hat sweet ungainliness of youth
is handsomeness itself,
not quite ripened.

so i laugh along with you and let
every fleeting moment of
strummed guitars and falling stars;
steamy cars and healing scars;
run through ink-stained fingers.

you blossom and
i watch on tenter-
hooks.

you are a still juvenile cosmos of
ephemeral mountains and teardrop seas,
where kisses become nebulas
that paint the night sky.

and thus -
dare i disturb the universe?
