comme une vague, comme un poème


define vulnerability

recite it to him

like a poem

like the warnings

on pharmaceutical bottles

be as charming as you are callous

be as clever as you are claustrophobic

be as beautiful as you are bruised

and define vulnerability

like a prayer

in bed, over breakfast

in lingerie, over burnt bridges

in the breaths between imaginary kisses

over the exaggerated endings

in secret, over coffee

like the truth

like a wave

like you

"She would fill endless notebooks with stories about the characters in her life, their impressions, words, friends, lovers, inspirations, fantasies. She spent her days dreaming up worlds where they fit together in visions; the if only, the never again, the someday. Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
