Loneliness

Loneliness is the human condition.

Cultivate it.

The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.

― Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Every once in awhile, it goes the other way too

Love

em>I had to come all the way from the highway and byways of Tallahassee, Florida to MotorCity, Detroit to find my true love.
If you gave me a million years to ponder, I would never have guessed that true romance and Detroit would ever go together. And til this day, the events that followed all still seems like a distant dream. But the dream was real and was to change our lives forever.
I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and things seemed to be getting so shitty. And he’d say, “that’s the way it goes, but don’t forget, it goes the other way too.” That’s the way romance is… Usually, that’s the way it goes, but every once in awhile, it goes the other way too.

She stared at

the stars

like they were

pillows for

her mind

and in their

light

she could rest

her heavy

     head.

Butterfly

“She loved him because he had

brought her back to life. She 

had been like a caterpillar in

a cocoon, and he had drawn her

out and shown her that she was

a butterfly.”

Happy Birthday, Audrey

Audrey Hepburn, 1954.

There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.

tide that never stops

“Other memories stick, no matter how much you wish they wouldn’t. They’re like a song you hate but can’t ever get completely out of your head, and this song becomes the background noise of your entire life, snippets of lyrics and lines of music floating up and then receding, a crazy kind of tide that never stops.” 

― Sara ZarrSweethearts

“We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them.”
