false hope zodiac

the suspense is killing me, occasionally 

it reverberates with rust and reluctance

a mechanical fortune teller

spitting out a cliche about you and me

(retrograde in mercury)

serendipitous to believers, perhaps

this shallow wisdom helps

like a bandaid over a severed artery

false hope zodiac

is it ancient wisdom

or the fool’s almanac

tarot or torture

I guess we’ll wait and see

(wealth and love guaranteed)

"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."
