power of words.

just a collection of words to keep in mind

“Again, the English language fails to have a word to describe the depths of sadness, how a heart can feel heavy, how a stomach can drop to your feet, or how missing someone can cripple you.”

“By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”

William ShakespeareMacbeth

“But rarely do you ever tell people about the true depths of your loneliness, about how you feel more and more alienated from your friends each passing day and you’re not sure how to fix it. It seems like everyone is just better at living than you are.”

Ryan O’Connell (via climaxs)

“Sometimes my vision becomes blurred and I can’t see the future anymore. In times like this, I seek clarity by taking myself out of the picture for a while.”

“tell them you don’t know how Eve felt
when the snake brought you his heart like an apple
and your thirst, your hunger, your curiosity
all red and pulsating like an open wound
made you take it
and hold it until your knees gave out,
until he carried you into the darkness
like some white horse who mistook
the street lights for a sunset.

tell them you don’t know how Eve felt
the morning after
when the skies parted and you realized that all angels are demons who haven’t been cast out yet,
so you ask him to stay
and he does,
and you look at him,
that man,
the one with the empty chest,
the one everyone warned you about,
and he may not be God, but at least he’s here.
oh, Eden is so sweet
Eden is so beautiful
but you do not want to stay
here forever,
because women are the only ones who can create life
yet you are supposed to
believe that we were conceived from a man’s ribs.

tell them you don’t know how Eve felt
when she was told that she was the downfall of humankind
before humankind even began,
when eating that apple made her
the first wild thing, the first beautiful creature to not do
as they’re told.
your heart is an offering
not a caged bird.
This man in your bed
may be a mistake,
he may answer the questions you
didn’t want to know
but, you will grow,
your roots spreading across the seas,
your limbs growing apples
your heart growing thorns
to protect itself.

tell them you don’t know how Eve felt
when she saw Adam in one hand, and the rest of the fucking universe in the other.

tell them you don’t know how Eve felt
when she wanted the universe.”

maybe eve was a wild thing (via alonesomes)

“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”

John Green (Paper Towns)
