"…i’m dreaming the hardest."

marilyn monroe


curve your spirit to mine and find the straight and wayward lines to travel by. cross your heart [don’t hope to die].
be still
be light
let’s take our time.

"We don’t need a list of rights and wrongs, tables of dos and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. ‘Thou shalt not’ is soon forgotten, but ‘Once upon a time’ lasts forever."

Philip Pullman (via writingquotes)

"I change too quickly: my today refutes my yesterday."

Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra (via philosophicallyincorrect)

The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.

under it all

i peel through layers of flesh of blood to the very last cell of my very hopeful being. 
i run my fingers along your skin and think i’d like to try it on you, too.

escape with me 
let’s run free along coastlines made of wildflowers. 
through mountains scattered in snow. 
in sunshine or sun showers on sundays, 
through rainbows.
you’ll be my pot of gold. and i promise, i’ll hold tight to the greatest treasure i’ll ever have, so gently and so safe.

feel my heartbeat when your eyes meet mine. feel me dissolve in you and become so intertwined
there’s no detangling this beautiful mess. 
so we’ll revel in the rest 
waiting to be tied in double knots 
a million times over again.

you’ll become my everything. 
my reason. 
my breath. 
my saving grace. 
i’ll pull you apart, and fill your cracks with me. your love. my love.

no heavens no dreams no imagination. i’ll find you, all flesh and blood. you’ll make me see, you’ll make it feel like make-believe, you’ll make me want this us, this we. as we fall so madly, irrevocably, so hungrily in love. 

call it what you want

battle lines are blurred between the now and then. and thinking doesn’t change the fact we’re running end to end,
and without one in clear sight.

we’re tethered to the past and all the feelings stuck between words and breath.

we’re chasing after days perfectly ruined by sunset
so far from our desperate reach.

and each night we sit in darkness and wade through dawning thoughts. and each day wake with dread
as morning sheds crisp light upon crumpled sheets
upon storied bed.
