- I am a mechanical bird. I fly, dive, and flutter about things, curious, ... yet -- I am but a machine. I am the product of the times I came into. All is mechanical. My clockwork works - exactly. You can see by the meter of my words that something is precise about me.
I know not why; I am not the Originator of these things.
They only come to me. They tick, or they whirr, or they may, by chance, chime.
No matter - I hear, and respond to them.
I myself am quite delighted by these Missives that come my way, and my dearest love is the language I came in with, English. It isn't the words themselves; more - it is the very capability of being able to iterate what I have been given to feel.

what is it like, to know, in your heart,
that you made someone quiver?
that the words and sounds that you emitted
could bring Joy like no other; made her shiver?

have i not always remained true to my word?
have i given any reason to Doubt?
that i would remain, standing in Strength,
even if it means putting you out?

Sometimes the cure
is worse than the disease.
But I carry now the knowledge
that flooded into me.
From a rend in my soul,
heart cracked open wide,

I let them go with a kiss, for… Read full post »
