“Everybody has to make choices– choices they must live with, sometimes die with.” –Colin Channer
“A soul mate is not found; a soul mate is recognized.” –Vironika Tugaleva
He said, “If you love me
you must learn to hold water
in the palm of your hands &
never let one drop fall. Become
like the river that always flows calmly
and I thought,
“What does that mean?”
And I thought of the things
I’ve seen pulled from the river:
mannequin legs and heads
What do they do with the torso?
a body whose feet was
encased in concrete.
And I knew that he was saying
loving him would not be easy for me
it wouldn’t protect me
it wouldn’t comfort me
in fact, it would almost kill me
a thing that only existed to destroy me.
Peace & Love,
