I’m going to keep reading and documenting quotes until I feel adequate enough to bring together my own thoughts and ramblings.
“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” -Edgar Allen Poe
The delight of sentences fall away when their truths don’t resonate. We discover and bleed and unravel beneath the prose of others only when they bombard us with the sort of realism we can cry and laugh and agree with… BECAUSE WE TOO, live in very palms of life’s ambiguity.
We discover the deep relation we have to one another between the white spaces on a page, and in turn, we look back to our reflections and ease up a bit; we give ourselves a break, we unlock the expectations, we uproot the performance-based-relationships, we turn away from the ultimatums.
We look at our tired eyes and allow ourselves to rest. Tomorrow, we begin again.
