"Come forth from the cloud of unkowing and kiss the cheek of the moon."
Is just one of my many favorite lines.

If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem

it's gotta be:

Givin me head on an unmade bed,
While the limosene waits in the street.

What great poetry. I wish I could write like that.

Let's see if we're that strong."

Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline

... climb on your tears and be silent
Like a rose on its ladder of thorns

I loved you when our love was blessed, I love you now there's nothing left but sorrow and a sense of overtime

We're both of us beneath our love
we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation, and compassion.

His hands upon his leather belt now
Like it was the wheel of some big ocean liner
