"White knighting” is a pejorative term bigots use to undermine such actions from men who are using their voices for support, not for condemnation and misogyny. Bigots use it to claim men are supporting women in the hopes of sleeping with women. Because, apparently, that’s the only reason you would ever want to treat someone as a person.

The ESB duel and Luke’s recovery - Art by Ralph McQuarrie

I love this art so much.


Surfeit

I lunge in the darkness
toward your towering presence,
graceful by the tremble of your lip
to speak words I’d forgetten I wished for.
Illuminating our trove of secrets,
through streets that don’t exist in
a surrealist vision of stark realizations
and revelations, moods & moments,
eloquence in the throes of passionate exchange
but just as if we were perfect lovers again,
neglecting all knowledge of the time spent forgetting.
Encroaching into my hidden labyrinth,
you fall forwards into my arms
your laugh distilled in the charms of those eyes,
bright with the reflection of
nuance and a protractive distance we
were so suddenly pulling back together.
We retreat to my sleeping soul,
to meet with regard and poise upon
a stage we can neither see nor hear,
the clamour of repeated reveries doesn’t last,
as my evaporating mass of etherials floats off
on waves of transience to waking life…


Kramer is the best.

Kramer is the best.


Dream Weight

Does anyone know how it feels to spend all night falling in and out of the same curious dream, one that feels so much like a real rendezvous with a lost lover, where the words you’ve wanted to say are spoken and the connection is re-born, and the fire of the searing pain returns at the very end just to break your heart all over again?

I had one of them last night. And it’s not shaking off as I’d like it to. And my head is a mess today. I was sure those feelings were buried for good, that her voice and smile and eyes were lost. I wish they had been.


Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.
