A Small Thing

A Small Thing
 'A hurt so small,'
    Say you,
'A thread of grey
    On blue,
So slight a thing
Less than a wild rose sting
Nothing at all.'
    And yet,
When thrushes call,
    Or winds awake
And sigh – and sink –
    And fall –
Into the evening’s grey
I think –
    And think
This small heartbreak
Will wear my life away.
Marion Angus

“When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn’t make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. “It’s all right” we whisper, “I’m here, I love you.” and we lie: “I’ll never leave you.” For just a moment or two the darkness doesn’t seem so bad.”
— Neil Gaiman

The Human Experience

-Tyler Knott Gregson

How unique
to this human
that we all
just wish
to be
the most important
on earth
to someone
