Favorite Quote:
Do not read as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.

Fill the pages with the breathings of your heart.

I do not need you to fill some space left empty.

You have been inside of me always.

Though I know nothing of your face, your eyes, your hands, or your scars,

I can feel your heart beside mine.

It beats like an ember-

flickering low, but maintainnig heat enough to warm its companion.

It flutters like fairy wings,

filling my empty spaces

with shimmering breezes.

And I know that in your chest,

beneath so many layers of inconsequential gore,

I will find that small piece of my heart,

whose absence I have to so long felt,

burning and fluttering and filling you.

This was just something I wrote rather quickly and without almost any editing that I wanted to just release to the wilds of cyberspace.
