My Beautiful Contradiction

When everything is a dizzying mess of variables you are my stabilizing constant. When everything is stagnation you are my joyful flux, my ecstatic explosion of colors and beat. You anchor my ship to safe havens when the waves below and roar, but when the sun is shining bright you become as the trade wind behind my sails, keeping me out of the doldrums and sailing me on to the farthest shores. You wear me out until I am spent, and then you lay me down to blissful rest.

You are my danger and my safety, my risk and my security, my battleground and my sanctuary. You are my adventure and the home I come home to after the long journey.

You, and no one else but you, are my beautiful contradiction. And without you I am naught.

Pecier Carpena Decierdo is a male specimen of the primate species homo sapiens. According to Pecier, one of his main goals in life is the justification of his species’ name. Close proximity to his most preferred carbon based life form, Rose Anne, causes Pecier’s brain to become saturated with phenylalanine, and being with the said Rose Anne is also known to bring about attacks of involuntary spasms called “laughter” in Pecier. Aside from Rose Anne, the subjects “philosophy”, “science” and “literature” are some of the other things that fire up his libido. He has so far survived twenty-two roundtrips aboard his home planet and he has no intentions of quitting soon.

Venerable Verses

The cloud-clapp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,

The solemn temples, the great globe itself,

Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,

And like this insubstantial pageant faded,

Leave not a rack behind: we are stuff

As dreams are made on; and our little life

Is rounded with a sleep.

-William Shakespeare, The Tempest-
