had a tooth pulled… head is throbbing, along with the massive amounts of blood in my mouth…

there is so much i want to thank someone for… and i never seem to have the words to do so…

thank you to Camille… because without her… i would not be evolving as an artist… and i would not have been able to produce my band stuff… or would not be working on my book… i want to thank her for supporting my art no matter what… no one has ever done that before… and thank you Camille for making this house a home…

____________________________________________________

I do not love you as if you were a salt rose, or topaz
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
So I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

~Pablo Neruda
