You only feel powerless because your fear has given your power to the object of your fear. Once you realise this, you can claim it back.
Reading poetry is like undressing before a bath. You don't undress out of fear that your clothes will become wet. You undress because you want the water to touch you. You want to completely immerse yourself in the feeling of the water and to emerge anew.
Speak to me: I will spend my lifetime trying to understand you.
Do not give them a candle to light the way, teach them how to make fire instead. That is the meaning of enlightenment.
Forget your voice, sing! Forget your feet, dance! Forget your life, live! Forget yourself and be!
Find me here, said love. I will wait for you below and above. I will wait for you in the dark, in the light. I will wait for you in the day, in the night. I have waited millions of years and haven’t grown weary once. All of eternity I will wait though there's nowhere I haven't been once. I have been in hearts and groins, in the whole and the chasm. I have been in birth and death, in the fucking and the orgasm. If you close your eyes, I am there, in your nakedness, in your truth. If you ask for me, I will come in your age, in your youth. Because I love you, lover. And wish to be loved. Find me here, said love. I wish to be loved.
