"What do you value the most?"
"Someone I love"
// Kanye West feat. Dido: Say You Will //
You are my horizon | You flood my mind | You drain my heart | You squeeze my spirit | You infuse me with hope | You haunt my beliefs | You congest my memories | You steal my free will | You dance and I tremble | You make me forget myself | You make me want to write poems every hour | Poem  is just an abstract rendition of a sexual act using some physics and mathematical terms. | This line, that lacks pain killers, is for designing the ardency of my seduction of you | I resent the formation of my name upon your lips without a trace of compassion | I’m maintained by the mercy of indexed prayers and photographs of you. | These are the lines I wanted to crawl over and whisper to you....

"Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love--and to put its trust in life"
"Existence is a series of footnotes to a vast, obscure, unfinished masterpiece."

“We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.”
Fastball: love is expensive and free
Love, though in a sense it may be admitted to be stronger than death, is by no means so universal and so sure. In fact, love is rare--the love of men, of things, of ideas, the love of perfected skill. For love is the enemy of haste; it takes count of passing days, of men who pass way, of fine art matured slowly in the course of years and doomed in a short time to pass away too, and be no more. Love and regret go and in hand in this world of changes swifter than the shifting of the clouds reflected in the mirror of the sea.Joseph Conrad
How come I end up where I went wrong
I'm amazed that I survived
Don't get my sympathy
why so green and lonely?
What, what was that you tried to say?
I'll laugh until my head comes off
And it wears me out, it wears me out
and now i don't know why
I have no idea what I am talking about
I'm in the middle of your picture
My brain says I'm recieving pain
Please could you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest
Come slowly to me
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I love you
For your little,startled,thoughtless ways,
For your ponderings,like soft dark birds,
And when you speak ‘tis a sudden sunlight.
I love you
For your wide child eyes,and fluttering hands,
For the little divinities your wrists,
And the beautiful mysteries your fingers.
I love you.
Does the blossom study her day of life?
Is the butterfly vexed with an hour of soul?
I had rather a rose than live forever.

It's nice to be crazy in love, it's the ultimate loss of control
“In some ways I love everything cause it’s less of a thing than ‘like’, less distinct, less particular. I like things that I like but I love everything. There’s more choice in ‘like’ cause even the worst things have things to love in them.”— Cassie Ainsworth, Skins /via

“Just one thing,” she says, raising her head and looking me straight in the eye. “I want you to remember me. If you remember me, then I don’t care if everyone else forgets.”

I love 3 women ( Tom Waits: Warm Beer Cold Women/live )
I gave up on 2 women ( Bernard Butler: Woman I Know )
I lust after 1 woman ( Rufus Wainwright: The One You Love )
I can't sleep and I just watched a dumb movie filmed in NYC which made me miss you, brunch, walks on the Upper East Side at night, Museums, The Park, Duane Reed runs for random stuff, Coffee shops, your laughter, waiting for play tickets, dancing at night, eating late, trying to sleep when they pick up the trash, and every time I've visited rushed completely into one sleepless blink. So I found a picture I took from my first visit, just to make my Hyperthymesia last a little longer.
I had another one of my endless insomniac nights. I was lying on my living room floor with what seemed like a million magazines around me, trying to make some art happen. I was watching the "Live in London" DVD (I've been obsessed with "If it be your will" lately) and thought of you. So I'm mailing you a little something because I was thinking of you. Lets write a poem together one day soon.
by stephen dunn
I've known an edginess, come evening,
when I haven't chosen to be alone, but am,
the necessity of music, the implacable silence
of the telephone, when my faith is faith
in the provisional, wild, no consolation
in it, and deeply, late at night, in the
peaty, musk-scented, moon-driven dark
I've felt so singular,
so importantly sorry for myself,
or so exquisitely stilled, attuned,
that I knew there were night truths
unavailable to lovers or the loved,
though I might be close to them,
and have put off sleep because sleep
is social, intrusive, all the uninvited
waiting to make appearances, put it off
until it came for me, ignorantly, persuasive.
