aftdtm

you guys.

once again,
youtube won't let me embed,
but you have to watch this.
trust me.
i can't get over it.

this may be one of the most beautiful poems i've ever heard.
ever.

the climax makes my heart pound
and cuts my breath short.
all the holy's.
the way he strings words together.
pilot lights.
movie screens appearing on awakened planets.
falling for a swish of light.
woosh...blue.
black construction paper night.

"the design in the stars is the same in our hearts
the design in the stars is the same in our hearts
in the rebuilt machineries of our hearts"

Both great lines :)

Ah, youtube... yes, it can be tricky at times. :)
