All day and all night my desire for you unwinds like a poisonous snake.
Grace will meet you in the valley, and her song will carry you home on the wind to another sky filled with ethereal beauty unfolding and love everlasting.
I am not bold, just blind.
Goodbye, Room.” I wave up at Skylight. “Say goodbye,” I tell Ma. “Goodbye, Room.”
Ma says it but on mute.
I look back one more time. It’s like a crater, a hole where something happened. Then we go out the door.
A memorable heart is the easiest way to immortality.
Lust starts with chemistry. Love starts with trust and respect.
I used to think that when people fell in love, they just landed where they landed, and they had no choice in the matter afterward. And maybe that’s true of beginnings, but it’s not true of this, now.
I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.
Never forget to see the beauty, even in ugliness.
When someone tells you they’re too busy, it’s not that they mismanage their time, it’s that you’re not a priority.
None of us suffers as much as we should, or loves as much as we say. Love is the first lie; wisdom the last.
