If most of those un-named things
Only exist in theory,
Please count me out
Of reality,
Please spare me
The quasi-translations
And the empty devices.

I won't apologise:
My heart likes to wander
After that
Only available
In my sleep;
She knows my distant memories,
Before and After
This life;

I search for something
That is not
You,
That is not blue,
That is made of
Nothing.

I must be a strange kind of pantheist –

With a Sagittal plane
That dips into a
Mirror-matter
Tea;
My letterbox-heart
Receives irregular
Prescriptions of
God's nucleic acid
Base codes,
Eden coated pills,
And rose briar scented
Love letters.
idiosyncratic symptoms. Well, here's to making use of things.

:heart: I'm trying to change into a normal (boring) person - the very thing i've always feared/hated...I guess chasing things that are never available doesnt really work lol. PLAN B.. :)

Breathtaking.
My response cannot possibly match the eloquence of Shane's.
Therefore, allow me only to say that this is a language near and dear to my heart.

i can smell the textbooks on your breath, see the clinical diagnoses swimming in your eyes, i feel your urge to fight against the current of humanity's desire to categorize and reduce the universe to piles of chemicals and repeatable phenomena. but i place my trust in you, Natalie, of all people i know, that you will continue to keep a capsule clear of the minutia, that you will hold on to a bit of magic, a vestige of wonderment, to keep the Mirror-matter Tea close and warm.

this is wonderful. thanks for sharing.

Unfortunately the idiosyncratic symptoms are my own lol. Yet the text books aren't far away - and filled with lots of microbiology and pharmacology. You're right about the categorising of things...it takes away from the mysteriousness of things. However, the ocd in me likes neat and tidy boxes. :hug: Seeing as you also have a vile *cheers you with hers* ;) Thanks for the wonderful comment, Shane :D

Mirror-matter tea, the most cosmic pantheistic variety. Grown on mountainsides of nebula dust. Watered by radiant electron rain. Beloved of students of life.
