I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.

July book haul!

do not fall in love with the girl who has a storm in her eyes,
do not fall in love with the girl who frowns more than she smiles,
do not fall in love with the girl who is brighter than the stars in
the sky.

do not fall in love with her, for she will break you in two.
she will teach your heart the art of falling apart,
she will steal all the breath from your lungs,
she will fool you and beat you and bruise you, until
you can no longer tell the difference between flowers
and weeds.

do not fall in love with her, for once you do, you will see her
in everything.
you will see her in the faithful and hopeful way the sea kisses
the shore.
you will see her in the constant switching of the sun and the moon.
you will see her in everything, and you will love her even more.
