Stop posting so fast… It’s kinda hard to keep up. I’m trying to love you all and you’re making it too hard.
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you?” —
- Billie Holiday “Gloomy Sunday”
El poeta es un fingidor.
Finge tan completamente
Que hasta finge que es dolor
El dolor que de veras siente.
Y quienes leen lo que escribe,
Sienten, en el dolor leído,
No los dos que el poeta vive
Sino aquél que no han tenido.
Y así va por su camino,
Distrayendo a la razón,
Ese tren sin real destino
Que se llama corazón.
I will always reblog this.
Every thousand years
This metal sphere
Ten times the size of Jupiter
Floats just a few yards past the earth
You climb on your roof
And take a swipe at it
With a single feather
Hit it once every thousand years
‘til you’ve worn it down
To the size of a pea
Yeah I’d say that’s a long time
But it’s only half a blink
In the place you’re gonna be
Where you gonna be
Where will you spend eternity
I’m gonna be perfect from now on
I’m gonna be perfect starting now
Stop making that sound
Stop making that sound
I will say I forgot it
But it was only yesterday
And it’s all you had to say
