Transient Tomes

...and always this memory of drowning.

People not places are haunted.
Who is in that chair?

I want to stop pretending.
I don’t feel like I’m pretending,

But I want to be free
Of this important feeling

What was it you were promised? I’m sorry
if it turned out to be a lie. But the girl
really did drink fire from a flower,
the dog did leap a chasm, days advanced
and the stars spun through our umbras
and threw their backward light upon
the bent, deniable, rusted, unaffirmable
black-prone forever.

My fear of life is necessary to me, as is my illness. Without anxiety and illness, I am a ship without a rudder. My art is grounded in reflections over being different from others. My sufferings are part of my self and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and their destruction would destroy my art. I want to keep those sufferings.

—Edvard Munch (via larmoyante)

I still stand in awe of superficial things.
