Wir würden die Achtung der Leute weniger anstreben,
wenn wir sicher wären, ihrer würdig zu sein.

Rupi Kaur - the sun and her flowers

a lot of times
we are angry at other people
for not doing what
we should have done for ourselves

- responsibility


where do we go from here my love
when it's over and i'm standing between us
whose side do i run to
when every nerve in my body is pulsing for you
when my mouth waters at the thought
when you are pulling me in just by standing there
how do i turn around and choose myself


i can still see our construction hats lying
exactly where we left them
pylons unsure of what to guard
bulldozers gazing out for our return
the planks of wood stiff in their boxes
yearning to be nailed up
but neither of us goes back
to tell them it is over
in time
the bricks will grow tired of waiting and crumble
the cranes will droop their necks in sorrow
the shovers will rust
do you think flowers will grow here
when you and i are off
building something new
with someone else

- the construction site of our future


day by day i realise
everything i miss about you
was never there in the first place

- the person i fell in love with was a mirage


the irony of loneliness
is we all feel it
at the same time

- together

The trees know about the winter. About the change. About the falling. About the loss. And they grow anyway.
What's your excuse?

"Und das Glück steht vor Dir an der Straße, es hält den Daumen raus.Aber alles geht so schnell, dass es Dir erst einmal auffällt, wenn Du in den Rückspiegel schaust." -Maxim

Wird der Tag kommen,
an dem ich nicht weine,
weil ich dich so sehr vermisse?

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.
- Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.- Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum (2005)
