“The first time I heard you laugh,
I only wanted to say funny things
so you would always be laughing.
You know what happens to chocolate
when you leave it out in the sun?
I’m that unfortunate chocolate
and you, you are the laughing sun.
For this reason, I am offering myself to you
not as a martyr or some selfless fool,
but as a self-indulgent moth
who actively pursues the light
without much fear for the flame.
The moth who revels in the heat
and declares:
Burn me.”
Kamand Kojouri

Krystalle Bianca
“My nephew. He is lovely, isn’t he?”
I feel my heart skip at the sudden change of subject. My gaze follows hers. Elliot is talking to a group of men, as their heads are thrown back in laughter. He is more than lovely. Lovely is too plain a word to describe him. He is breathtaking.”
