We don’t build our kingdoms tall for them to crumble; when kingdoms fall, they crumble.
We don’t build these walls around our hearts for them to love- but the love will penetrate like the rays of light that strike your face to awaken you at dawn;
the same hollow pale illumination of the night that settles us into our beddings.
Love settles into the heart the same way.
