unlikely alliance

the philosophical prince and the empress of articulation

the boy with the thorn in his side and the girl who drank the moon

two lost souls with questionable ties in absurd past lives

tangled together like mismatching shoe laces

this… is a very unlikely alliance

an unconditional accident

between quintessentially existential and quelled rebellion

equally unattainable and irresistible, he and i

a clever counterpoint paralleled in a subtle harmony

 rhetorical and distant strumming an acoustic guitar on a Southern trail

reciprocal and devoted reciting erotica to an Appalachian sunrise

"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."
