“I hope one day
someone asks you
about him
and you laugh
instead of feeling
a double edged
dagger on your chest.”

“If leaving is
what soothes
you, then gone
I shall be.

To watch you
shine from
a distance is
enough for me.”
Noor Shirazie (via aestheticintrovert)
“I was twenty-one at the time, about to turn twenty-two. No prospect of graduating soon, and yet no reason to quit school. Caught in the most curiously depressing circumstances. For months I’d been stuck, unable to take one step in any new direction. The world kept moving on; I alone was at a standstill. In the autumn, everything took a desolate cast, the colors swiftly fading before my eyes. The sunlight, the smell of the grass, the faintest patter of rain, everything got on my nerves. How many times did I dream of catching a train at night?”
— Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase (via aestheticintrovert)

“I want
to kiss every inch of you,
light a fire
deep inside your ribs
where your soul sleeps;
I want
to be -
what awakens your spirit,
what sets your mind free.”
M.V., You seem to be all I want (and it scares me)

All That’s Alive


Remember, remember when we first begun
Our bodies were two, our existence was one
The day we split up, remember that night
One of us took with them all that’s alive

“I still remember the way
your lips cradled the words
‘you’re mine’ as you
uttered them to me, and
how you gave new
life to the phrase.

I still remember how
the words perished as
I heard you say them
to someone new.

I am still yours, but
it is meaningless when
you choose to belong
to another.”
Noor Shirazie (via aestheticintrovert)
“When you left,
you took away
the only armor
I’ve ever had.

My skin is too
vulnerable now,
open to the terrible
viciousness of
a world I wanted
to leave behind.”
Noor Shirazie (via aestheticintrovert)


i want you like heavy rings
symbols and signs on my hands
weighing me down like
a tree’s boughs to my roots
sinking down to the earth’s heart
to the middle of us all
i want you like that; keeping me here.

While with family this Eid, remember those that are separated from their loved ones in Gaza, Syria, and Iraq. Remember those who have daily difficulty whilst trying to provide for their family. Whether they are spending their first or fiftieth Eid in a state of loss and mourning, keep them in your prayers.
