Contentment is my church
And, this gnostic cutie my crush
When I hold her in my arms
My heart begins to blush.


Resting Awake

Behold, the dancing living room.
The breathing, variegated
walls speak of chemistry
And Holistic wellbeing.

Every room a fate,
Every person’s eyes
A first and final destination—
A platform of love.



I measure my level of contentedness by how the silence sounds. There are all types of silence:

solid silence, transparent silence, awkward silence, comfortable silence, peaceful silence, happy silence, invigorating silence, enraging silence, crippling silence, silence that is deafeningly loud, silence that is sharp and cold, fragile silence, ugly silence, magical silence, eerie silence, beautiful silence, reflective silence, silence that is meant to be indulged, silence that is meant to be broken, horrid silence, hateful silence, silence like white noise, silence like fog, or silence like a warm blanket, heart-achingly silent silence, tense silence, sacred silence, necessary silence, empty silence, dry silence, soft silence, fresh-snow-on-the-ground silence, passionate silence, intense silence, meaningless silence. 180 more words
