"You don’t talk much do you?
You talk too much, don’t you?
You talk as though you’re afraid
if you ever stopped talking people would forget
you’re standing in the room.
You kiss with your eyes open,
you won’t talk to a stranger
or you’d fuck a stranger for a high-five.
You grip the steering wheel too tight,
hold on like you’re afraid the car will go on
to some more important destination without you.
You’ve lived most of your life like you’re dying,
dying for a better life to rescue you and plant
trilliums in your hair but it never showed up."
Jamaal May, excerpt from “The Movement of a Trapped Animal” (via lovemestarkly)

"We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
Alfred Lord Tennyson, “Ulysses” (via larmoyante)

"Each of us needs something of an island in his life—if not an actual island, at least some place, or space in time, in which to be himself, free to cultivate his differences from others."
