entry arrow2:54 AM | Because of Orville

When you actually realize for real that you have so much of love to give, you also realize with such finality you cannot just waste it on somebody who doesn't want it in the first place. And so we move on... [Thanks, Orville.]

The Fist
By Derek Walcott

The fist clenched round my heart
loosens a little, and I gasp
brightness; but it tightens
again. When have I ever not loved
the pain of love? But this has moved

past love to mania. This has the strong
clench of the madman, this is
gripping the ledge of unreason, before
plunging howling into the abyss.

Hold hard then, heart. This way at least you live.
