“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 just might be slipping back
into friendship; slowly, painfully, like
removing mic tape from my skin, but
there's no way to simply
get it over with; no, instead i
ache in this tragic dance of
hoping and falling backward in time to
every reason to hold on to
you

    Replying: Oh well, I couldn’t agree more! There’s a reason for everything, of course. In fact, I’ve dedicated certain pieces just to this issue. It was just deliberate stereotyping, light humour, nothing more :)

    “i ache in this tragic dance” is my favourite line in this, so heartbreaking yet elegant.
