Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.
Don’t you dare
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.
The rain to the wind said,
You push and I’ll pelt.’
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged—though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.
Spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself & a little less time trying to impress people.
Today I couldn’t stop thinking about you. All morning the rhythm of your voice has been parading through my head, like a million heavy stomps it seems to leave so many imprints in my brain.
“Wasted are the days
where the skin beneath our clothes
doesn’t get to touch.”

I’m guilty of giving people more chances than they deserve but when I’m done, I’m done.
