How can I stop fearing other people? How can I know who I am? How to let my native sense of meaning flow and connect with people and the world? Why this sense of horror, coming over me? Fear? Sylvia Plath, from a diary entry (via violentwavesofemotion) 19 October

Playing with shadows and light, lying in bed trying to figure out life.

abletosaveher:

dance across my skin one last time,
don’t let me close my eyes.
trace constellations on my hips,
find tidal pools in the curve of my smile.
kiss my laughter when you tell me I remind you of country songs,
even though we both speak rock ‘n roll.
you’ve got storm cloud eyes,
and I’m dancing in the rain.
don’t shelter me,
flood me.

You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame; How could you become new if you haven’t first become ashes?

Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Happy Birthday!

(via wordsnquotes) 15 October
If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together. Andrea Gibson  (via 5000letters) 15 October
No one ever tells you that people will leave your life, unannounced. Sometimes they leave the earth, sometimes they just leave you. Things continue. Tomorrow you will wake up and the sun will be kissing your eyelids and it will be a new day for you to drink too much coffee and reread an old book. You will be okay. No one ever tells you that, either. Days will melt together like some candle you burned down to scraps, and seasons will change. You will fall in and out of love with yourself more times than you’ll ever be able to count. It is important to take the time to appreciate your own fingerprints, your own skin. There will be days when it is all you have. (via thatsyourgold) 14 October

I have a deep affinity with earthworms. I think it’s because they have five hearts. And I’m just a writhing mass of emotions.

You will always fall in love, and it will always be like having your throat cut, just that fast. Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless (via sempiternale) 13 October

What I Mean When I Say, "I Think About You Often."

shesanargonaut:

May you always have soft sunlight, a full moon, a bus that always comes on time. Flowers. May your kisses feel like falling, like stars blossoming into nebulas. Good hands. May you feel like you are infinity, like time is always on your side. You are divine. A mouth full of…
