Simon Van Booy, The Secret Lives of People in Love

(via aseaofquotes)

When We Try to Change Others and Avoid Ourselves

"We need to embrace who it is we see in the moment and accept them as they are. And if who they are in that moment means they can’t be in our lives in the way we’d like, then we get to make the choice to move on.

Sticking around because we see potential, in turn, stifles ourselves.

We spend so much energy «trying» to be okay with who we’re with instead of «really» being okay with them. And if we’re not okay with them as they are, then it’s okay to walk away. «It’s okay to walk away.»

The difficult truth is that when someone is hiding in fear or suffering in pain or rejecting our love, we have to allow them to do that.

We’re not here to fix each other or change each other. Sometimes the best choice is to let go and trust each of us to handle our own journey.”

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has…

This has always been one of my absolute favorite e.e. cummings.

"and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart"

If You Forget Me


I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
