writes into your flesh
you make of me.
I catch midnight
as moon fires
in my throat.

"Here I became aware of the world’s tenderness, the profound beneficence of all that surrounded me, the blissful bond between me and all of creation, and I realized that the joy I sought in you was not only secreted within you, but breathed around me everywhere, in the speeding street sounds, in the hem of a comically lifted skirt, in the metallic yet tender drone of the wind, in the autumn clouds bloated with rain. I realized that the world does not represent a struggle at all, or a predaceous sequence of chance events, but the shimmering bliss, beneficent trepidation, a gift bestowed upon us and unappreciated."
- Vladimir Nabokov, “Beneficience” in The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov (via larmoyante)
"If I loved you I would have written differently."
