I’ve had lots of happy moments. I’ve been lucky. But I always think the happiest moment hasn’t happened yet.

But like every kiss, this one is an answer, a clumsy but tender answer to a question that eludes the power of language.

Let it all rain down, from the blood stained clouds. Come out to the sea my love…and just drown with me…

awritersruminations:

I feel nothing
but pain for the past
trying to separate
like old clothes
crumbling in a chest
what does not last
from what I can keep
trying to understand
how I fell
so short of what I intended
to do with my life.
How life twists and turns
against us. How a childhood
is not really understood
until it is lived
a second time
in memory.
How wonderful
and how terrible
it seems now
because it is gone
and because it was mine.

—Sarah Brown Weitzman, from “Looking Back" (via mitochondria)

It’s not hard to own something. Or everything. You just have to know that it’s yours, and then be willing to let it go.

awritersruminations:

The wind is level now, the earth is wet with dew,
the storm of stars in the sky will turn to quiet.
And soon all of us will sleep under the earth, we
who never let each other sleep above it.

—Marina Tsvetaeva, from “I know the truth” (translated by Elaine Feinstein)
