❝ The thing I’m most afraid of is me. Of not knowing what I’m going to do. Of not knowing what I’m doing right now. ❞

❝ I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning. ❞

"Two people, sitting on the top of a slide during the freezing night, wordlessly holding hands.
It was like being a ten year old boy, and a ten year old girl.
One lonely boy,
And one lonely girl.”
— Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 [Book 3]

Haruki Murakami, IQ84

This is the way we love. She said,
if there were more than one moon I wouldn’t know
what to do or where to begin.

If the fog never lifts, the city’s still
there. She said, some things only know

one way to hide. This is the way we love,

she said, with a shotgun
under the bed. Under your skin the bone is setting.

And her hand smoothed the skin.
And her hand set the bone.

—   Brian Russell, "Shotgun Under The Bed" (via transmutes)   —
