If ever my life can be of any use to you, come and claim it.

~A.P. Cekhov

“Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.”

Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.”

“Perhaps our love originated in the loneliness we both had known before. His hunger for togetherness was insatiable. That hunger became a vital necessity for me. In a way, each seeded a revolution in the other. We opened to each other so completely — not only physically, not only sexually, but like human beings related in a secret way. We bound ourselves, together.”

“You’ll notice that I haven’t talked about love. Or about happiness. I’ve talked about becoming - or remaining — the person who can be happy, a lot of the time, without thinking that being happy is what it’s all about. It’s not. It’s about becoming the largest, the most inclusive, most responsive person you can be.”

pe străzi pustii, ţinîndu-te de mînă.
Oricum, probabil nici tu n-ai dori
un trup fărîmiţat, cu-n suflet gri,
grădinărit de îndoieli şi moarte.
Nu vreau să mai revin, e prea departe
tot ce-am…

fabiananton:

doar toamna-i sinceră. şi moartea. ştii
am învăţat să inventez prostii
strălucitoare, le repet mereu
solfegii pentru bunul Dumnezeu
în care tot mă amăgeam să sper
dar e prea toamnă, fab, cum pot să-i cer
mai mult decît ce am pierdut deja.
mi-ajunge ploaia, burgul, o cafea,
frunzele răvăşite,…
