“Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?
What primal night does Man touch with his senses?
Ay, Love is a journey through waters and stars,
through suffocating air, sharp tempests of grain:
Love is a war of lightning,
and two bodies ruined by a single sweetness.
Kiss by kiss I cover your tiny infinity,
your margins, your rivers, your diminutive villages,
and a genital fire, transformed by delight,
slips through the narrow channels of blood
to precipitate a nocturnal carnation,
to be, and be nothing but light in the dark.”—Pablo Neruda (via escriptor)
“More often than not, monogamy operates much like a cult of two, mired in a mutual pact not to rock the boat, while trying to find some pleasure amidst its stagnant or tepid waters. A mirage of intimacy greened by oases of distraction and occasional bursts of closeness.”—Robert Augustus Masters, Transformation Through Intimacy (via running-towards-nothing)
“My feelings for you shame me into silence. The truth of this and your name will never be revealed. It is you who has made me realize the failure of my life. The thought of you fills me with longing and at the same time, a burning humiliation that produces scar tissue and dead brain cells. Your existence mocks me and I am unable to confront this. You have no idea of any of this. None of this is your fault. It is completely with me. It is you who makes me see what I really am. I am weak and out of touch with myself.”—
As a longtime fan of your sites, I just wanted to offer my support in your time of loneliness. I'm a 26 year old married man from the east coast, and I have always appreciated your passion for love, in all it's forms. The erotica (both visual and written) have inspired many a fun time in my household. Your post about losing Mr. Guerre was heartbreaking, which was an unexpected feeling from a site that I frequent my iPhone. I wish you a love that equals the passion you offer. Never lose the fire.
What a lovely and very much appreciated letter of support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your loyalty and kindness. :) xo LC
