"Someone once (I forget who it was) said, 'Do not think so much. You can't hear what your heart says.' But it speaks in tugs and puddle-leaps and bangs my ribs to pieces. Thoughts are the safe bet." ~ 'Silent War' (A Fine Frenzy)
"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."
