Gamble everything for love if you are a true human being. Half-heartedness does not reach into majesty.
The muffled wing beats
of these swallowed butterflies
when you touch my skin.
by Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson
Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe. I will keep it safe.
