intrigue

Frankly, most men bore me.
This is a problem because
I would never be content
with a plain existence
sitting in one room for
the rest of my life with
a boring husband who I have
come to love mainly out of
necessity. I want the one whom
I devote myself to –
to be incredible. Electric.
Someone worth knowing. Someone
who intrigues beyond the point
of comprehension. Someone who
electrifies all of the cells
of my body, who ignites the surface
of my skin when we touch. Someone
who sees me more for my
soul substance rather than
the sum of my parts. He will
understand how to keep me.

How to enliven even
the darkest corners of my
entire universe. He will
fall in love daily
with the subtle nuances
I have saved just for him.

He will know what he has
and what he could lose.
What we would lose, together
If ever we were to unravel.
And what we will gain
by joining ourselves.
By being near each other.

And we will grow.
And deepen with our
complexities
and simplicity.

And continue.
And continue.
And understand
that the final chapter
will never
be written.

AN ATLAS IN CLOTH: CAPTAIN COOK’S RARELY-SEEN FABRIC BOOK

BY KRISTIN WINET

This book, which is only allowed to be handled a few times a year and is never on display for the general public because of its delicate condition, is one of the few remaining copies of Captain Cook’s catalogue of tapa cloth samples from his third and final voyage throughout the South Pacific.

❤ Stromae - carmen ❤

Has anyone noticed how he wears a yellow shirt in both formidable and Carmen. He wears a yellow shirt in the rain after his girlfriend has broken up with him. Is the Carmen music video the sequel to formidable? 

 Hmm, I wonder….

❤  I’m not finished just yet.. Why was the first Carmen video deleted? And have you also noticed that Stromae’s Instagram was practically advertising for Carmen? He got  Instagram to send a symbolic message and provide free advertising! Stromae getting Instagram got us ALL hyped up! Stromae=Maestro. Stromae is the master and a wholesome genius. I love him.❤

It’s crazy, out of everyone, out of those closest to me, it was you who reached out. That is the reason why you intrigue me. You have a heart and it’s a beautiful one indeed. Passion inspires me and I haven’t been inspired for quite a while and that is why I know you are different. Unfortunately I know you aren’t best for me now and I know I can’t be what’s best for you and that is why I must stay away. If I get to close I may not want to leave..
