  • Beauty is not a face.
    It's the way we feel the darkness
    and the light and the smudge of the two,
    If I never see you
    or hear you again,
    I'll be happier as I go on in my life,
    for having met you.
    And I want to thank you.
    No-one can let go
    like someone who doesnt expect
    to hold on.
    In this way, I'm free.
    But god, how wonderful
    my life now
    with the blood of our conversations
    slowly erasing my reticence,
    and leaving me in the hammock
    of a smile.
    I love you
    My dear friend.

    Bear.
