Keaton Henson - 10am, Gare du Nord

This feels right and I’m letting it,
and now I know just what to do.
Tire of me if you will my dear,
but I will not tire of you.

This is the world as I see it now;
turns out that nothing is fair.
You can leave me if you wish my love,
but I’m not going anywhere.

Please do not hurt me love,
I am a fragile one
and you are the light in my eyes.
Please do not break my heart,
I think it’s had enough
pain to last the rest of my life.

My endless distraction, you worry me,
and I’m trying to figure out how.
You don’t have to make any promises, love.
I’m afraid I might die for you now.

And I’d kill just to watch as you’re sleeping,
I hope that you’ll let me in time.
You don’t have to call me yours, my love,
but damnit, I’m calling you mine.

Please do not hurt me love,
I am a fragile one,
and you are the light in my eyes.
Please do not break my heart,
I think it’s had enough
pain to last the rest of my life.
My life.

And I will not tire of you.

"make a wish"
said my parents
watching gracefully
over my shoulder
as i was about to blow out
the candles on my cake
and as my cheeks puff
and my chest expands
to set out the final fires
of my age
the only wish that i need
or want
is to be happier at fifteen
than i was at fourteen
—  make a wish, or my final thoughts of being fourteen
I had a birthday yesterday, guys!

I’m twenty-six years old now. Which is really only a day over twenty-five years, three-hundred and sixty-five days, which is how old I was the day before yesterday; but twenty-six years is a much better-sounding age. Time is weird.

For my birthday, I got a pretty swanky shirt with Admiral Ackbar on it, two very nifty pairs of Boba Fett socks, a book (Neil Patrick Harris’s Choose Your Own Autobiography, which has a very nice first four pages and I’ll get back to you all once I’ve read more), and tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld when he’s here in May! A very nice haul for twenty-six, although I think not as nice a haul for some other ages. Interesting how different our tastes are at different ages. Again, time is weird.

I hope you all had a great day on my birthday, which for the rest of you was in fact just Saturday; unless of course any of you were also celebrating a birthday yesterday, in which case happy belated birthday to you!
