“To hell, to hell with balance! I break glasses; I want to burn, even if I break myself. I want to live only for ecstasy. I’m neurotic, perverted, destructive, fiery, dangerous – lava, inflammable, unrestrained.”
―Anais Nin


by Carmen H Gray

Unbridled you

Like water, unbordered

You cannot be contained

Chargeless, yet charging forward

Wild, untamed

Don’t let anything

Keep you detained

Beautiful you

Unabashed, unashamed

Don’t let anyone

Keep you claimed

Not even me


Rare Worlds Collide

 “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”-Anais Nin

Rare Worlds Collide

by Carmen H Gray

My once so small world

Multiplied by yours

Expanding into something new

Teeming with tenderness

Compassion and honeyed light

Orbiting around the sun

A day spanning all of time

When rare worlds collide
