when i become o

natalie portman from the film "closer"


we seek

are we not slaves?


there is no greater freedom than slavery …
one abdicates
in favor of an other
authority … a greater authority …
the one that defines good
the one that dictates action …

thinking becomes and is dangerous …
thinking is questioning
it becomes heresy …

to be
to not think,
to be innocent
free …

intimacy is freedom
from fear
it is the complete trust of an other
control is relinquished without fear of consequences

it is a giving up of concern
for others
this moment
it is a giving up of

how are we now as lovers
to balance this
taking and letting go
how are we as lovers
to reconcile our love
of the self
of an other

where is the line between my lover and my self

love -

an unselfish, benevolent feeling.
to be devoted to …

in feeling
to desire those conditions which are most favorable ….
to follow this logic

a truly rare condition
to be remembered when not present
to be nurtured
to seek and take joy in the flourishing
to dwell upon

a refuge

Love is an odd thing … it is a stain that will not wash away … it lingers … it haunts.

I love you.
