Thus if men would remember the duties they are to perform in being heads, some would not stand a tip-toe as they do, thinking themselves Lords & Rulers…
The words we’re desperate to hear.
The words we never will.
Maybe the wolf is in love with the moon, and each month it cries
for a love it will never reach.
Do you really think God will forgive me for the blood on my hands, even if my soul was free? I’m going to hell no matter what happens. Let me have my pathetic hopeless love while I can. Just – let me pretend it will turn out all right.
On a day when fate and time stood witness
two star crossed lovers breathed their last.
They say witnessing a falling star
fulfils any wish,
but these two stars fell to earth
wishing only to belong to each other.
“She stains the time past: lights the time to come.”
– Duchess of Malfi, 1.1.213-4
And she could say
with the utmost clarity
that both she and him
were made of that same rope
which binds them
Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air.
In life and death
we find solitude
I wear his name on my tongue
and his scent on my skin
