"Carefully and cursively we fill our travelling diaries with loss"

x

loneliness is the house I wanted to live in
before I met you.
a place where nothing ever happens,
and I’m safe because of it.
you changed the ending.
took the wings off my airplane heart
and didn’t let it fly out of your greedy hands.
now you say you’re leaving
and miles away Rome falls.
its buildings crash to their knees after rising to meet you
for so long.

an origami sailboat
reminds you how sorry the
rivers are for falling in love
with temporary things.
now you say you’re leaving,
and miles away engines break
apart in the sky.
you look at me and say
‘here.
here is a kingdom of promises I meant to give you.
i’m sorry their crowns keep falling off,
but it’s the best I could do.’

now you say you’re leaving
and miles away
icarus flies too close to the sun.
he knows exactly what he’s doing.
he always meant to leave through the
light.

- Y.Z, legend has it (via rustyvoices)

She didn’t want to see herself in the reflection of the glass. That’s why she stood there with her eyes closed.
❝ What do you do with so much love to give
and no one to give it to?
What do you do with a heart that’s about to burst
because no one can hear it beat?
How do you learn to look people in the eye
when all they ever see is what’s behind you?
How do you continue to give
when you’re already in debt?
How do you learn to fall again
when all it ever taught you was that
your scars are only a reminder of the times
no one was there to catch you? ❞

❝ I know my being happy is an anomaly. No one knows me better than you. But I can say without avoiding your gaze, without crossing my fingers behind my back; or the other things I do when speaking untruthfully—I am happy. I know the rain does not discriminate between day or night and either will hold its own light and dark—but now, at this very moment, I feel like I am the sun. And I know in my heart, I will always look upon this time—not without a sense of melancholy—that it was the happiest in my life. ❞

❝ I’m sorry for my inability to let unimportant things go, for my inability to hold on to the important things. ❞
