said by the fox

you risk tears if you let yourself be tamed.
— the fox in the little prince by antoine de saint-exupery

we risk a lot.

high fevers and febrile seizures.

early mornings and disrupted sleep.

panic and found.

never wanting to die too soon, to leave them.

blood and broken bones.


learning we have what it takes, learning our weakness

mistakes. many of those.

making-it marriages, season of loyalty losing passion.

tiredness in bones, weary day after dayness.


but we let ourselves.

we let them tame us.

it's miraculous and chaotic.

sparks and explosives. so fiercely.

and then subtle, an ease.

we can not imagine life without having been tamed.

we give way to it despite the risks. because of.

there is letting. there is being. ongoing. 

a taming.

but if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life.
— the fox
