this piece is so beautiful

The first concert of the summer program was last night, and I sang one of my favourite arias in front of an audience for the first time. The energy in the hall as I was finishing the piece, combined with my pianist’s beautiful playing, was so potent that I couldn’t keep it together at the very end. Luckily my friend who recorded this stopped recording before that happened, but it was an experience I will never forget. I wasn’t perfect because the emotions of the music and the reciprocating energy overpowered me, but I do think it was perfect in the moment.

I’ll have to delete this because I’m not sure if we’re allowed to post things on our own, but I really wanted to share this moment because while I’m embarrassed I couldn’t hold the tears until I was backstage, it touched a genuine part of myself that I hope to hone more in the future.

If you would be so kind,
Please introduce me into your heart as
The boy who loves you.
Let your heart sink into my arms as
The boy who will hold it with care,
As it is a fragile thing.
For I will love you when the sun sets and when the ocean rages inside of you
For you are a hurricane and you are
A beautiful piece of nature,
For you are so hard to explain.
But in the destruction you leave in me,
I will be the boy who loves you.

“I’m done fighting. I just want to go home.”

“You can’t go home, Julie. I’m sorry. We can go anywhere else in the whole universe, but we can’t go home. I need you to know, whatever happens, wherever you go, you’re not gonna do it alone.”

what if the sun fell in love with Icarus | for the very talented @gabriellightwood

maybe Apollo blazed infernos with the bitter sting
of humiliation. singed off feathers one by one,
thrust him into the frigid embrace of an ocean
that would sooner kill than love back:
a lesson to mortals who dare defy the gods. | [ x ]
