who wore my self-esteem like a morning jacket

stealing the fire from my skin?


Julio Cortázar
"This silence, this moment, every moment, if it’s genuinely inside you, brings what you need. There’s nothing to believe. Your old life was a frantic running from silence. Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence."
Rumi  (via ashisarah)
"you who are no longer in the world’s present tense
but in an excess of night with hidden doorways"
 Amina Saïd, You who are no longer in the world’s present tense (via viperslang)
"For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth."
"Poetry protects language from serving any master.
One can see better from the periphery than from the center."
Ann Lauterbach, The Night Sky: Writings on the Poetics of Experience (via therapybubbles)
"Ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer. The investigation of ugliness is to me, more interesting, than the bourgeois idea of beauty. And why? Because ugly is human. It touches the bad and the dirty side of people."
Miuccia Prada, T Magazine “Culture” 2013 (via dinnerwithannawintour)
