I will not ask you where you came from,
I will not ask you and neither should you.
Honey just put your sweet lips on my lips
We should just kiss like real people do.
PEOPLE Magazine: Oscars 2014, the Contenders↳Chiwetel Ejiofor (Best Actor Nominee, 12 Years a Slave)
Key to my performance: Solomon’s biography. It’s full of humility and extraordinary grace.
↳Lupita Nyong’o (Best Supporting Actress Nominee, 12 Years a Slave)
Key to my performance: When I read the book I understood Patsey in my gut. It was visceral.
A restless torment runs through me,
A slow, steady pulse of sadness.
I thought it was you that made me shine,
And yet you are the very darkest part of me.
Guilt dances on your tongue but you revel in it,
Let it wrap you up in it’s exultant embrace.
You took the light from me and made it into you,
Well see how I am without your sun,
See how I will shine.
