the most romantic thing i never did

leah, you asked for my thoughts on romance and i think you have condemned yourself to a series!
the most romantic thing i ever did (in my opinion) was to write a poem. in this poem i described the meeting of a couple in love. it talked about quickened heartbeats and quaking legs, it talked about the way two hearts, two minds, two selves become one. it was not talking about love or sex, sentiment or sensuality but about the alchemy of the whole experience. it was good and powerful and raw. so raw that i felt my heart was exposed and beating on that page. i couldn't live safely in the world with my heart on a piece of paper and i destroyed it. it became the most romantic thing i never did.


  1. Damn! How much do I wish we could see that. It is quite romantic, though, the destruction of that poem. Thanks for sharing that with us, as much as you could.

  2. Hi Kylie!
