"And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go."
— She was always holding my hand (via everythingyoulovetoohate)
"I think I’m losing it—I don’t know what’s happening, what happened, but I look at you, I look at you, and I love you so much. Not because of anything you’ve said, or done, or anything at all. I look at you, and I just love you, and it terrifies me. It terrifies me what I would do for you."
— Alexandra Bracken (via drapetomania)

"At first the solitude
charmed me like a prelude,
but so much music wounded me."
— Rainer Maria Rilke, from Music (via violentwavesofemotion)
"I am inhabited by a cry.
Nightly it flaps out
Looking, with its hooks, for something to love."
— Sylvia Plath (via observando)
❤️❤️❤️ Oh, Sylvia. ❤️❤️❤️

"I love you enormously. I’m spending a little time away from you—quite absurd and contingent. I would so like to see you, my stubborn little thing, and tell you my stories and hold your hand. You are my love, you good little being. Far from you I measure the nothingness of the flesh, and I am not having much fun."
