'Melancholy' Series IX

The most beautiful people we have known are those
who have known defeat, known suffering,
known struggle, known loss,
and have found their way out
of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation,
a sensitivity, and an understanding of life
that fills them with compassion, gentleness,
and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
- Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross

'Melancholy' Series VIII

I didn't fall in love with you. 
I walked into love with you, 
with my eyes wide open,
choosing to take every step 
along the way. 
I do believe in fate and destiny, 
but I also believe we are only fated 
to do the things that we'd choose anyway. 
And I'd choose you; 
in a hundred lifetimes, 
in a hundred worlds, 
in any version of reality,
 I'd find you and 
I'd choose you.

'Melancholy' Series VII

Grow, where they say you cannot.
When they tell you it's impossible.
When the rust around you leaks orange
onto your skin and threatens
to lock you in place, grow.
We are light seeking beings,
crawling from the shadows,
and we must grow.
The only thing keeping us
where we don't want to be,
is the only thing that
can set us free.

let it go
by e.e. cummings

let it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and neithers –
you must let them go they

were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go

so comes love.

I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be...
