"Admit it. You aren't like them. You're not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the "normal people" as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like "have a nice day" and "weather's awful today, eh?", you yearn inside to say forbidden things like "tell me something that makes you cry" or "what do you think déjà vú is for?"
We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.Kavita Ramdas, in her commencement speech to Mount Holyoke graduates (via weissewiese)
I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know that there’s nothing but light when I see you.Shinji Moon, The Anatomy of Being (via sicksex)
