Protect me from what i want

It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday.

If you are born an artist, you have no choice but to fight to stay an artist.

Whole years will be spent, underneath these impossible stars,
when dirt’s the only animal who will sleep with you
& touch you with
its mouth.

—Aracelis Girmay, excerpt from “Kingdom Animalia” (via feellng)

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.

—― Herman Melville (via psych-quotes)

I will be wild. I will be brutal. I will encircle you and conquer you. I will be more powerful than your boats and your swords and your blood lust. I will be inevitable.

—Iphigenia, from A Memory of Wind by Rachel Swirsky.  (via sourirefugace)
