“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.” ~ Allen Ginsberg

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet."
~ Plato

'I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
~ Sarah Williams

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
~ Leonardo da Vinci

this is more than just an addiction. it's
acceptance of your imperfect. and no
i can't think of the right way to
describe that raw side of you. not
any more than words can explain
the sweetness you hand me like flowers.
where did you find that smile, did a star
decide you deserved to spread the
patch of innocence you still keep? my heart
is holding onto you. i won't let go. don't
let go of me, leave me to travel the skies
alone like a lost balloon. make me more
than a misplaced contact on your
phone, will you hold me?
