Forever Love

Trusting your significant other will eventually see the face they saw when you fell in love.

Trusting your significant other will eventually forgive the face they saw when you fell out of love.

To my brother, Nicolas

There is instinct, there is twin-stinct and then there is us. 
Neither of the former are as powerful as the latter.

Gentle Honest Friends

A cigarette is an adult pacifier, a binkie--but at least a baby knows it. Nope. Neither knows it.

Both can only grow out of it with help. Help they don't want because it hurts.

It stunts their growth to have it. Their emotional growth, not physical.

Adults don't realize that God wants to kindly pull it out of their mouths.

If one doesn't believe in God, they need to listen to the observations repeated by good friends and strangers.

Friends say it nicely. Strangers give the news harshly.

Blessed are those
with good friends.
Gentle honest friends.

Replace "a cigarette" with "an emotionally comforting unhealthy behavior" and you can't judge the smokers.

Tattoos

The bent arrow reminds 
her of sorrow. The golden 
ratio's geometry divines 
peace. Others embolden 

past memories or mind 
frames. She's not beholden 
to them. She's ever 
Kristen, herself, forever.
