Sunday Sentence

The best sentence I’ve read this week, presented without commentary and out of context.

The best sentence I have read this week, presented out of context and without commentary. 

i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

“i carry your heart with me (i carry it in)”
