"It is not down in any map; true places never are."
— Herman Melville (via roadlessco)
"You make me happy but that doesn’t mean I own any of you."
— Anne Sexton in a letter to Anthony Hecht
"I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…"
— Childish Gambino (via bodv)
"There will come a time when the night air
won’t send chills down my spine
for it will no longer whisper your name.
I will stop telling stories about you,
for the moon has grew tired of hearing them
and weariness is an awful thing to feel.
The stars would appear
brighter than your eyes,
and I would hear lullabies again.
The winds would be warm,
the seas won’t crash waves,
and I will no longer drown."
— Elaine Vivo, I will learn to unlove you (via aestheticintrovert)
