Favorite Quote:
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions”
Rainer Maria Rilke quote


The last vestige of your sweet, masked poison
Penetrates the vestibule encasing
These fragile remains of my moth-eaten
Heart. Yet true danger lies in the lacing
Of such sacred venom tightly with my
Unsaturated blood. I’m not able,
In loud solitude, to identify
How your liquor tricked my untenable
Flesh by disseminating through pseudo-
Symbiotic means. For this fierce acid,
While sustaining, is also de facto
Ephemeral - I must achieve placid
Convalescence to regain consciousness.
But to smother a dead flame is hopeless.
