The Greatest Loss


Death is not the greatest loss in life. 
The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

Voor Dolores


The song has ended but the memories linger on.

Planted



(a work in progress)

"Sometimes when you are in a dark place,
you think you have been buried,
but you have actually been planted.
Be patient."

~

To the people who have felt tiredness of their souls,
but still get up in the morning and choose to stay strong:

I am proud of you. You are not alone.
Stay grateful. Stay compassionate. 
Stay humble. Stay kind. Stay soft.
The universe returns to you what you put out,
and you will make this world a better place.
Please keep moving forward,
you are on your way.
As I am.

I carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart).
  I am never without it

(anywhere i go you go, whatever is done by only me is your doing).

Women


"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees:
but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses."

The Living Poetry


You fell in love with the artist,
the one who,
even after you broke their heart,
made you look like something 
breathtaking,
made you sound like
a miracle.

They wrote you a thousand poems,
crafted you a million different ways,
all making you exist within the lines of beauty.

Do you know how lucky you are?
To have broken the heart of someone,
someone who will turn you into art?
You've been alive before,
but never like this.
