Sorry It’s So Small by Lauren Ireland
Remember how you went away. Now Nature hates you.
Well I want to die but just a little bit every day.
I have learned that everyone has some great sadness.
I will let anyone do anything to me. Even the man
rapping quietly to himself. Even lightning.
All you need to know is I love you
even though I completely forget what you look like.

it sucks when you believe in someone so profoundly and this person just disappoints you again and again and again

you have to understand that when it hurt to love her, it hurt the way light hurts your eyes in the middle of the night, but i had to see, even through the ruin, if what we were burying were seeds

“Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many many endings, and many beginnings—all in the same relationship.”
— Clarissa Pinkola Estes, “Women Who Run With the Wolves”

"Royal Heart" by Andrea Gibson from Look Sessions on Vimeo.
i just saw this live and cried so much and thought only of you
it takes guts to tremble
it takes so much tremble to love
i cry as often as most people pee
it’s hard to watch this game we make of love
just to be clear:
i don’t want to get out
without a broken heart
i intend to leave this life
