what is life??




You have not lived life until you have eaten a spoonful of pure peanut butter

Unless you have a peanut allergy

Then you are living life just fine and I would advise you to disregard my previous statement

“I think of how the mystics read
by the light of their own bodies.
What a world of darkness that must have been
to read by the flaming hearts
that turn into heaps of ash on the altar,
how everything in the end is made
equal by the wind.”

Timothy Liu, excerpt from “Vox Angelica,” The New Young American Poets (Southern Illinois University, 2000 (via apoetreflects). (via literarymiscellany)

“The moon hung over the planet Earth, a dead thing over a dying thing.”

— John Fowles  (via mirroir)

“I don’t care if you don’t love me, I will lie down in the road, pull my heart out and show it to you.”

“If the dead are watching, I want them to see us writing, dancing, singing, painting. I want them to see that we still reach out to each other.”

— Richard Siken, ‘Black Telephone’ (via lordmalak)
