When You Think Of Her ~ Neil Gaiman

There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away the things she won’t remember and that she can’t even let herself think about because that’s when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it’s always raining a slow and endless drizzle.

You will hear that she has left the country, that there was a gift she wanted you to have, but it is lost before it reaches you. Late one night the telephone will sign, and a voice that might be hers will say something that you cannot interpret before the connection crackles and is broken.

Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again.

Whenever it rains you will think of her.

Neil Gaiman

I get lost
in love
and I said
I get found
a difference
in expectations
and definitions
in a language
we both
are trying

BEST FRIENDS

LOVE AND COMPROMISE (EARTHA KITT)

Love is brief

We don't know anything

Some will love you with all their being
when you stand naked in the kitchen,
because the scent of you is still like roses to innocence.

This is not the professing sort of love,
that begs to be heard,
it is the love that speaks through kisses and silence.
Love that stands alone in just a moment,
then is gone.
Momentary adoration.
Always unspoken.

“The moon turns its clockwork dream
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire”

Pablo Neruda
