“I could see the veins through your skin like a map to inside you. How could skin be that thin? I was so afraid you might drop and break. I stopped breathing so you wouldn’t.”—Francesca Lia Block, Wasteland (via trua)
“Half my days I cannot bear not to touch you.
The rest of my time I feel it doesn’t matter
if I ever see you again. It isn’t the morality,
it is how much you can bear.”—The English Patient, Micheal Ondaatje (via trua)
“That’s why I love you and yet not why. There are so many reasons, and yet so few, for love has to be so, involving and general, particular and terrifying, joyful and grieving, flowering like the stars, and measureless as a kiss.”—Pablo Neruda (via owlveinss)
Storm sky in August. Gusts of hot wind. Black clouds. Yet in the East a delicate, transparent band of blue sky. Impossible to look at it. Its presence is a torture for the eyes and for the soul, because beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.”—Albert Camus, Notebooks
Poem 50 ("I lost my way, I forgot...") from "Book Of Mercy"
I lost my way, I forgot to call on your name. The raw heart beat against the world, and the tears were for my lost victory. But you are here. You have always been here. The world is all forgetting, and the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart, and the world is lifted into its place. Blessed is the one who waits in the traveller’s heart for his turning.
“I am abandoned in the world… in the sense that I find myself suddenly alone and without help, engaged in a world for which I bear the whole responsibility without being able, whatever I do, to tear myself away from this responsibility for an instant.”—Jean-Paul Sartre (via human-voices)
Do you actually keep in touch with anyone you got to know through tumblr? If not, would you be interested in that?
Well, I do have quite frequently contact with four people on tumblr. They’re all from different countries so as for me, I’d like to stay in touch with them, yes. It’s lovely to meet people all over the world through tumblr :)
I’m from The Netherlands :). It’s a shame you are anon, I don’t quite like putting too much information about myself on tumblr. But I’m quite tall (174cm), I have straight and light brown hair, I have a fringe, blue eyes and I have a kind of a strange figure. I have small hands and small feet for my length. That’s all I can say, really. I’m sorry if you wished for a more detailed description or even a photograph! xx
