light of marie

and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love–
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure

that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you

as you stand there,
empty-handed–
—  Mary Oliver, ‘The Sun’

 “We cannot just die, not without trying. Not without fighting. We exist because this world exists. It’s a responsibility of ours, whether or not anyone will remember it, to protect it. ”

My dearest Mary, if you are reading this, then you are leaving France to reclaim your Scottish throne. I always knew this day would come and I wish I could be at your side as you set sail to take back what is yours. In the darkest of times, you were my conscience. Your heart was a light, Mary, and it burned so very bright for France. No matter how far you go, that light will burn forever. I have left you a gift, something i made for you to fight for what is yours and for what you know in your heart is right. I love you, Mary Stuart. Forever.

and in the end you’re still my FRIEND at least we did intend
for us to
WORK we didn’t BREAK, we didn’t BURN
we had to learn how to BEND without the world CAVING IN
i had to learn what i’ve GOT, and what i’m NOT and who i AM
I WON’T GIVE UP ON US


for @bbcmary ♥ happy birthday, darling !!
