"Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don’t know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better."
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via favouritelittlelines)
"Instead of leader we had louder,
instead of lover, never."
From The Dark Sooner by Catherine Wing (via hush-syrup)
"We were no longer a sweeter-here
happily-ever-after. We were after ever.
We were farther and further.
More was the word we used for harder."
From The Dark Sooner by Catherine Wing
This whole poem is stunning endlessly.
"Our interest’s on the dangerous edge of things. The honest thief, the tender murderer, the superstitious atheist."
Robert Browning (via nessathurman)
"People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world."
