Favorite Quote:
“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


her eyes were like uncut diamonds,
just exhaled in a puff of
carbon breath
from the lips of God, and i felt
the earth tremble at
her birth,
as her small fingers curled once around mine,
then loosened in the grip
of death

In the face of eternity, our lives are as fleeting as that of a newborn child's.
