"No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention.
Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day.”
— Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters 

could you love someone enough after all you’ve had and you’ve lost?
it’s a simple question I’m only asking ‘cause I don’t want to die alone
could you love someone completely?
and yes, by “someone” I mean me 

"I am always trying to convey something that can’t be conveyed, to explain something which is inexplicable, to tell about something I have in my bones, something which can be expressed only in the bones.”
— Franz Kafka  
"I will remember your small room, the feel of you, the light in the window, your records, your books, our morning coffee, our noons, our nights, our bodies spilled together, sleeping, the tiny flowing currents, immediate and forever. Your leg, my leg, your arm, my arm, your smile and the warmth of you who made me laugh again.”

Charles Bukowski (via edensamuelsgarden)

Sigh. Bukowski gets it

"I love your silences, they are like mine.”
