je veux vivre.

poem abt me: 
i will never 
like the look
of a yoga mat in the 
morning or the simplicity
with which people smile
& i will never
go a day without 
coffee or forgetting about 
death 
but i promise you
i will always
like the look
of your tired eyes in the
morning or the mess
of your pillow hair
& i will never
go a day without
kissing you first or 
listening to you wonder about
life
and the abyss
and if
we have to take out
the yoga mat
just wait until dusk, at least,
so we can stretch
and smile
with the moon
and i can think about death
and you can talk about life
over coffee 
afterwards

Vanity: the understanding that the never-ending search for something above yourself is futile
