"i take pleasure in my transformations.
i look quiet and consistent, but few know
how many women there are in me."

the storm

this level reach of blue is not my sea;
here are sweet waters, pretty in the sun,
whose quiet ripples meet obediently
a marked and measured line, one after one.
this is no sea of mine. that humbly laves
untroubled sands, spread glittering and warm.
i have a need of wilder, crueler waves;
they sicken of the calm, who knew the storm.

so let a love beat over me again,
loosing its million desperate breakers wide;
sudden and terrible to rise and wane;
roaring the heavens apart; a reckless tide
that casts upon the heart, as it recedes,
splinters and spars and dripping, salty weeds.

what if you fly?

"there is freedom waiting for you,
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask "what if i fall?"
oh but my darling,
what if you fly?"

"don't despair:
despair suggests you are in total control and know what is coming.
you don't-
surrender to events with hope."

the darkness

"it was the darkness that got you. it was heavy darkness, greasy and compelling. it made walls around you, and shut you in so that you felt like you could not breathe."
