Love is touching souls

I remember that time you told me, you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
Because part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
You're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter
And you taste so sweet
I could drink a case of you
Still I would be on my feet, 
I would still be on my feet.

The Three Best Films

...of the 21st Century

1. Wonder Boys - there is no contest, no disagreement, no room for dissent, hesitation or equivocation. Dylan won an Oscar for Things Have Changed. Case closed.

2. High Fidelity -  Another first person narrative, this one from inside John Cusack's character, and his path from love to love to love to real love; a path we have all been on.

3. People Like Us - The protagonist dies before the movie begins. In the aftermath, a story of two unknown siblings leading parallel lives of desperation, until a playground brings them together.
