brokensoul1981 Love is an anguish, a question,
a luminous doubt suspended;
it is a desire to know the whole of you
and a fear of finally knowing it.
To love is to reconstruct, when you are away,
your steps, your silences, your words,
and to pretend to follow your thoughts
when unmoving at last by me side, you fall silent.
Love is a secret rage,
an icy and diabolic pride.
To love is not to sleep when in my bed
you dream between my circling arms,
and to hate the dream in which, beneath your brow,
you abandon yourself, perhaps in other arms.
To love is to listen at your breast,
until my greedy ear is glutted,
to the noise of your blood and the tide
of your measured breath.
To love is to absorb you young sap
and join our mouths in one river-bed
until the breeze of your breath
impregnates my entrails forever.
Love is a mute, green envy,
a subtle and shining greed.
To love is to provoke the sweet moment
in which your skin seekd my awakened skin,
to gratify the nocturnal appetite
and to die once more the same death—
provisional, heart-rending, dark.
Love is a thirst, like that of a wound
that burns without being consumed or healing,
and the hunger of a tormented mouth
that begs for more and more and is not sated.
Love is an unaccustomed luxury
and a voracious gluttony, always empty.
But to love is also to close our eyes,
to let sleep invade our bodies
like a river of darkness and oblivion,
and to sail without a course, drifting;
because love, in the end, is indolence. (#xaviervillaurrutia)

brokensoul1981 I have forgiven mistakes that were unforgivable, I have tried to replace those who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable.I have done things on impulse.I have been let down by those whom I thought would never let me down but I have also let others down.I have laughed when It was almost impossible to laugh. I have held someone to protect them. I have made life long friends, I’ve loved and been loved. I have screamed and jumped for joy, I have lived on love and made eternal promises of love.I have fallen many times.I have cried while listening to music and also when looking at photos.I have called someone just to hear their voice.I have fallen in love with a smile.I have also thought I was going to die from losing someone special and I did lose them, but I lived! And I still live!What is really good is to fight with determination, embrace life and live it with passion. Lose your battles
with class and dare to win because the world belongs to those who dare to live.Life is worth too much to be insignificant. (#charliechaplin)
