A Japanese legend says that if you can’t sleep at night it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.
I want you everywhere, by my side and between my thighs.
I want your flowers in my hair and your name under my nails.
I want you with me, your sugar in my tea, my eyelashes on your sheets.
Write your name on me, when my heart breaks, I want it to be blinding.
Du, J.M. (via coffeeqveen)
I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.

Anne Carson, from Autobiography Of Red
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy — because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
Art is giving yourself permission to translate life. Exactly the way you feel. See. And hear it. Be the artist you are. Give yourself permission to speak your own language.
