it’s nice remembering others have lived this all, too.


“Yes, I was infatuated with you: I am still.

No one has ever heightened such a keen capacity of physical sensation in me.

I cut you out because I couldn’t stand being a passing fancy.

Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams.

And you weren’t having any of those.”

― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
