"You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it one day at a time. You try to walk in the light."

What is given to you is what is needed; what you want, requires giving up what you don’t need.
- George Alexiou (via observando)

2wentysixletters:

What’s Left in the Dark #6

on the other side
the water twinkled like spiders
i’ve discovered an 
old promise
cross my heart
up to the light
that winked a
very small 
star

Do you imagine at night someone
going to bed the very moment
you are going to bed? Turning
out the light?
And isn’t it so quiet you swear
the heart is telepathic.
Isn’t it—
- Beckian Fritz Goldberg, from “Eros in His Striped Shirt,” In the Badlands of Desire (Cleveland State University Poetry Center, 1993)
