Nothing Less

A Standard ~ by Leila Fortier

Leila Fortier The poem was written after being inspired by a quote from Anais Nin which I felt to be an anthem of my very own soul: "I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger than reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls." - Anais Nin
