Death of a Philosopher

Gracie Moore
I sit on the roof in skin you have never touched, feeling irreparable. You are dead, but you are also sitting in my shadow.
"What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others."
“Pericles said that.”
“You will carry my breath in your lungs even once I’m gone. You will cradle the shivering love from me inside you, till it becomes tangled in violence.”
“I am frightened of my empty hands.”
“You carry me everywhere, pooling in the corners of your eyes and latched onto your back and flooding your shadow.”
“You are heavy.”
“Everything you have to tell me crowds your mouth. It turns soft and warm with time and fills your lungs.”
“I’m drowning.”
“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
“Aristotle said that… what have you done with my soul?”
He does not reply.
Grief is woven into my veins.
My soul feels torn


  1. After looking over a handful of the blog posts on your site,
    I seriously appreciate your technique of writing a blog.
    I added it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back
    soon. Take a look at my website as well and tell me your opinion.

  2. I’m extremely impressed with your writing abilities and
    also with the format on your weblog. Is that this a paid topic or did you
    modify it yourself? Either way stay up the nice
    high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a great
    blog like this one today..

  3. Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I’ve
    truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I’m
    hoping you write again soon!

  4. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know
    any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  5. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  7. May I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody who actually understands what they are discussing online.
    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people have to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. I can’t believe you aren’t
    more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

  8. Greate pieces. Keep writing such kind of information on your
    page. Im really impressed by your site.
    Hi there, You’ve performed an incredible job. I will certainly
    digg it and individually suggest to my friends. I am sure they will be benefited from this site.
