this heart of mine


stay with me
or cure me of
addiction of
your generous
lips, saviors
of mine.

shining sun,
a therapy for
souls, lost
and never found,
like ours in
that storm;
you know,
senseless is
the hound.

don’t look back,
there’s nothing
left for us;
you’ve spoken
those words,
stronger than
a curse.

stay with me;
faithfully keep
my heart warm for
it was only thawed.



what she says: i’m fine

what she means: “how far i’ll go” is a song about yearning, ambition, and the hope for more despite not knowing what lies ahead, and the inner conflict a young girl feels over the duties she has and the need inside her to know her real limits, a song written by lin-manuel miranda, accompanied by a powerful instrumental, sung with three times the vocal power that la la land could never even dream of by a fifteen year old hawaiian girl, and it deserved best original track at the academy awards 2017
