Our long walks in the woods meant more to me than you will probably ever know. I truly hope that you asking me along meant you loved me very much, because I love you very much.

Mary Oliver, "How I Go to the Woods" I like this. It's not a poem *exactly*, but I like it enough to put it on my poetry board anyway.

I hope you're able to take at least one day off this coming week!

I wasn't someone to be admired at all.

he admired my melancholy madness and said it was graceful and beautiful. but it was neither of those things. i was a hurricane at the centre of a collapsing, burning, building; and i wasn't someone to be admired at all.
