" There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls. "
" I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past. "

I tried to forget

but you grew roots around my ribcage

and sprouted flowers

just below my collarbones.

All day I pluck their petals

but I have not yet ascertained

whether you love me

or not.

" I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. "
" A love once new has now grown old. "
