"Because my love for you is above the level of the words
I’ve decided to remain silent."
"You go your way
I’ll go your way, too."
I would go a night without sleep to finish these notes but that would be stupid so guess I have to readjust my schedule *sigh*
"Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible."

"The world’s 85 richest people have as much wealth as the world’s 3.5 billion poorest."
"i said to the sun, tell me about the big bang. the sun said, it hurts to become."
"My body is made up of saltwater and wishes, and a thousand star fish that try to mimic the constellations. And sometimes, that’s all I ever want to do: imitate the sky so that you can find a home somewhere within me."
"You don’t survive in me
because of memories;
nor are you mine because
of a lovely longing’s strength.
What does make you present
is the ardent detour
that a slow tenderness
traces in my blood.
I do not need
to see you appear;
being born sufficed for me
to lose you a little less."
"Yearning for permanence, and who wouldn’t?
Longing to believe it will last forever,
But what does? Nothing I know of.
Even the things that seem to stand still
Flow slowly into other forms.
The beloved’s first and only lesson:
Everything that is, becomes."
options, decisions, time.
they say it’s when you’re cornered will you know where to go
