"It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal."
- E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

You remind me of someone
that I admire, that I adore;
your talents and shortcomings,
your smile and mess
they meet from opposite ends
of your boulevard immersed in shadow
and alight with grace 

The intricate design
of all that’s been seen, and all
I’ve still to discover
in you, I am reminded of possible beauty,
directed toward Impossible Beauty.

The Story Coaster by Grant Snider

This is amazing. The unicorn in “extraneous scenery” wins.

I’m dying over the unreliable narrator.  I wish I could love this a hundred times.  The critical reaction is so spot on.

I am frightened most
when I put pen to paper
and nothing comes out,
when I’ve nothing to write at all,
I have fed the monster in me
every shred of my existence
and it is quiet most before it wakes.

A calm before the storm,
soon to be awoken
spilling words like fire
from its unhinged jaw,
every feeling pushed
to the back of the mind
now front and center,
all the once imprisoned words
on paper breaking free and
crawling up my arms into my ears
and reminding me of
everything I’ve tried to forget.

And all I can do is
pull them from my mind,
send them racing down my arms,
force them from my fingertips to pen
and put them back to paper —
all to quiet the monster
so I can have a moment of peace
inside my incessant mind.

Look at someone you love today,
for one minute,

as if you saw them for
the first time.

As if they were the first ray
of sunlight, caught by

the tender passion of your eye,
lighting up your whole world.

"I’m not really sure why. But… do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don’t think so. That’s what makes the betrayal hurt so much - pain, frustration, anger… and I still loved her. I still do."
