571 – “6:59 AM” A Poem

6:59 AM

– Shane Koyczan

I’ve been told

that people in the army

do more by 7:00 AM

than I do

in an entire day

But if I wake

at 6:59 AM

and turn to you

to trace the outline of your lips

with mine

I will have done enough

and killed no one

in the process.

288 – “I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do things that we’d choose anyway. And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and choose you.”
