"The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies."
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (via leritas)
"I opened “You slut” and found church pews
I opened church pews and found desperation
I opened desperation and found music
I opened music and found my father
I opened my father and found my broken heart
I opened my heart and found you leaving me
I opened leaving and found “You are impossible to love”
I opened “Impossible” and found a scream
I opened a scream and found childhood.
I opened childhood and found a swingset
I opened swingsets and found first kisses
I opened first kisses and found scared mothers
I opened scared mothers and found my mother
I opened my mother and found a scream."

"I want to write a novel about Silence,” he said; “the things people don’t say."
Virginia Woolf (via anditslove)
Your mother would habitually ask me, “are you staying for dinner?”
whenever I arrived through the door.
I always thought I was rude
when I told her,
“Thank you, but I already ate.”
The truth is,
I have never really learnt
how to sit at a table and eat
in front of people,
because I always thought
I was intruding
on some form of story
that I wasn’t a part of.

"you deserve your love much more than anyone else does."
"What if we are only figments of each others imagination?” He said.
