"What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life."
i’ve dreamt of supernovas and stars realigning. time and space separated and colliding back in exploding, pulsating harmony that when magnified, wrought incessant power. abstinent of existance, ever evolving and rebalancing itself.
at work today i was serving this woman and asked where her accent was from and she said Sweden. I told her i was there about two months ago blah etc and told her i was into design and liked Acne Studios from Stockholm and she said the creative director was her cousin. Long story short after an hour of talking etc she invited me to come with her to meet him if i go back there.

I love the dark hours of my being.
My mind deepens into them."
"Then, the sky and I are in open conversation,
And I shall be useful when I lie down finally :
Then the trees may touch me for once,
and the flowers have time for me."

So you’re sitting up at night, alone, listening to music. It feels like a zephyr of fresh air is flooding the halls. Filling the entire house.

I feel space. I am not hollow,but ever-expanding. Feeling in unison
the past, present and future endeavors,
emotions, struggles and virtues
of time and creativity. Stars aligned, and
magnify through, vibrations. The grace of this
anomaly stronger than the sun.
Bursting, burning, exploding power and turbulence
within the skin. A container that is unleashed
on the final close. Gratuitous flowers grow
and energy released. Blisters broken like bone china
and the rotations in emptiness that shelters and nourishes
the remains as if cement was all that formed them.
But I am space, feeling it
flow through, and will. Will to be what it has done before -
creation of the vicious terrain contained all throughout.
The insipid and cruel toxicity.
ways of explorations.
Space is within,
but it is not hollow.
