“And I fail.  But when I can, I will try to understand that when I can, I will.”

(via mutexwitness)

I am still learning
what love is
But this is what I
think it means:

To let go when you
know someone can’t
jar all your light anymore

To give yourself in
the capacity they
need in that moment,
even if it’s not in the image
you initially hoped for

And to not make your words
into a guillotine or a
public hanging of the
mistakes seeded in both
your fragile spines

I said in a poem once,
“I know we are not
always going to be
holy or magic but
I hope even on our
worst days we could
still be a slow dance
made of good intention”

The first night we were
everything sin and far from
salvation, you left me
two stepping to the sound
of your fading footsteps

In a room made of questions,
you were scared, and
I can understand
I am finding
I cannot be mad
at a broken winged bird
who does not know what
it means to fly

So this is me
clicking my record player
chest back on,
outstretching my hand,
and asking you to dance

We do not have to kiss at the end
I only want to dance with you
until you can hear the
symphony in yourself
Until you can find
your altar, your holy wine,
your bent knees, and the
reverence in your own voice again

I want us to spin in circles
until you are no longer
clenched fist and belly fully of doubt
I want us to get so dizzy
your smile will finally be
a horizon you feel okay
with waking up to

None of this is easy
Believe me,
I am trying for the both of us
but I have felt the anxious rhythm
in your chest

I heard one time,
if you hug someone for long enough
your heartbeats will begin to match
So come here,
I will hug you until
your heartbeat slows to mine
or mine catches up with yours
It doesn’t matter

This is what I am finding
it means to love
To set aside your expectations
To kill your ego
and selfish desires
To let pain be the teacher
and the lesson is to always give
even when it’s not in the way you imagined

This is love
To jump back into a ocean you
have drowned in so many times before
and still have the heart to kick
still have the heart to swim
still have the heart to do it all over again
with somebody else

Troels Carlsen s Paintings Within Paintings
Troels Carlsen’s visual language is diverse and poetic. Often incorporating interactions with vintage anatomical charts, maps and antique book pages, his work contains continuous visual and conceptual shifts between the biologically charted and the human consciousness. Rather than fostering contradiction, these works beg a curious question, which simultaneously challenges the notion of a given and complete truth whilst hinting that reality could be hiding somewhere behind the apparent foreground. Art historical movements, such as romanticism and symbolism, are paramount inspirational references within Carlsen’s work, juxtaposing the primacy of man with a scientific rationalization of nature.
