"You brave, brave thing.
One day, you’re going to
stop leaving the door open
for people who only know how
to keep leaving."

"Where exactly do you put your hands on somebody who hurts everywhere?"

Charles D’Ambrosio, The Dead Fish Museum: Stories (via larmoyante)

if you ask me to run across oceans,
i will

and if you ask me to give
even when it feels like i reach into nothingness,
i will find light

but you must not forget
flowers look to the rain,
and lamps to their drops of oil

even the steadiest flame
can burn out
