Favorite Quote:
So I suppose my simple advice is: Love your life. I only say that because your life is what you have to give.
-Tom Hiddleston

Nothing is as we wish it were
You will pretend to be perfect
Until something shatters
The rosy mold of your china lips

Would it have been worthwhile, then
To have squeezed the universe into a ball
And incinerate yourself
Melted like chocolate
Pretty forever
To perform past death
Or to live and work and wonder

Even when you lie
Imply love,
You are wishing.

You are weak,
Legs broken, with shortcomings
And some insanity
Weak with loneliness
And empty space
Empty space

You are still human.
