“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

i can't stop moving
when my legs give out
i'm not allowed to give up
if i need a break
it's not something i can afford

stuck in a constant state
of keeping it together
or failing expectations

i don't know how long
i can survive never pleasing you
that's all i've ever wanted
to be good enough
good enough for you
