Writing - 11.05.2021- Loving up until the End

These are my birthday roses from March.   They are still in my room. I can’t seem to throw them away. I move them from corner to corner, on the window sill or even on the floor. I keep them on display, I keep them safe. I find them still so beautiful, helpless, delicately holding their pose, admiring their nature, to be roses, at every stage of their lives.

And it's enough.I'm out.“ posted to Instagram 29.12.2020

Maybe it's a wayMaybe it's a bridge to the other side.Even if it is not.Even if there was no other side.I want to feel safe in the skin...
