too much of a good thing


too much of a good thing

he and i

i and him

restraint and the rebel

small doses of holistic hesitation

juxtaposed with

intensity injected intravenously

low tolerance apologies

100 letters written and never sent

36 birthday candles blown

incognito smoke signals

vanishing in the ebb

of empty understandings

inexperience is white noise

but the need is universal

as the line’s blur

between moderation

and starvation

i and him

he and i

too much of a good thing

"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."
