collided in the starry sky,
we were star-crossed lovers

who
knew no time
knew nothing else

but love

that was taken away
by time
by others

unrequited lovers in the sky,
we shall remain as

—priz, september 2014

Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of…messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering.

A few days are all we have,
so count them as they pass.
They pass too quickly - out of breath:
don’t dwell on the grave, it yawns for one and all.
Will you be buried in the yard?
Sorry, it’s against the law.
You can only lie in an authorized plot
but you won’t be there to know it,
so why worry about it?

—from somewhere.

“Though lovers be lost…”

“Though lovers be lost…”

What if you slept
And what if
In your sleep
You dreamed
And what if
In your dream
You went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
When you awoke
You had that flower in you hand
Ah, what then?

—Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s What if you slept?

Time will say nothing but I told you so.

How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

some people you meet
they come into your life
they taste your lips
they know you

some of them are not meant
to be the words
you long and yearn
to write down

but they came into your life
but they tasted your lips
but they got to know you
damn it

a regret
they become
wordless
they remain.

this has been my mantra last few weeks as i get broker, restless, and lonelier. 
so i have decided to try to make each day to be meaningful.
I do not want to exist. I want to live. I want my mind to be flourishing with all kinds of thoughts, I want my heart to be full with all kinds of emotions, and I want my spirit to be exploring on a daily basis regardless the fact I am broke, restless, and lonely. 
so here I am, right now, embracing new things, new encounters, new thinkings…and everything else that ensures I am not just existing but living.
