Favorite Quote:
"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


The heart is the sole
Ticking time-bomb that you can’t
Prevent from detonating.


The heart wills itself
To beat, to flutter, to react.
It tortures its host.

 

Inevitably:

It will release us like dust
From uncertain heights.


The nectar will cease
And as celest’ial corpses,
Our power recedes.


But even in death
A poet breathes fluently
Verse by aching verse.


Rhythm is always
Our pulse continued despite
The confined heart’s life.
