Yeah, I've been MIA again. So sue me. Sometimes I want to write, and sometimes, I don't. I can't force it.

My life has been less than stellar for the past 2 months or so. I'll deal; I always do. It tends to overwhelm, though, especially when my coping mechanisms refuse to co-operate.

I feel like posting a poem. Hooray for cop-outs! I'm failing utterly at articulating my thoughts, though, so I'll just let someone else articulate them for me.


Diamonds overhead.
We walk on crystals
sharp as longing.
When you touched me
I thought my heart
would crash through
my breastbone to lie,
pulsing and impossible,
on your bed. A screen
door banged across
the lane instead.
We heard a late car
on the street. Summer,
that was. I wanted
the sea, an island, more.
You wanted tenderness.
I felt the bone and
cartilage that held
my heart. Dreamed
of crystals,
sharper, even.

-Guy Gavriel Kay
