Favorite Quote:
"Plant a tree in your heart, and a songbird will come." -Chinese Proverb


Why must longing and repulsion go hand-in-hand?

Such a combination of forces is cruel,

But then again, vital:

Longing without repulsion would have me a spineless weathervane,

Swooping chaotically, unpredictably toward every shadow of your essence,

And repulsion without longing would blind me to all that I am allowed to receive.

Thus I maintain a bit of both in my gaze

As my right eye pictures turning away your advances,

And my left, embracing them.
