Rachel; You can try to get to know me but I don't know myself


This year will take from me
the hardened person
who I longed to be.
I am healing by mistake.
Rome is also built on ruins.

Eliza Griswold, from “Ruins”

"I don’t love him, and he definitely doesn’t love me. Still, he semi-fills a gaping black hole inside me. That place wants love, maybe even needs love, but love is something I’m pretty sure doesn’t exist."
-Ellen Hopkins, Identical  (via epikhi)

"You’re destroying me.
You’re good for me.
I like you.
How unlikely.
I like you.
How slow all of a sudden.
How sweet.
Please, devour me.
Deform me to the point of ugliness.
I beg of you."
-Marguerite Duras (via epikhi)
