Sylvia Plath - Mad Girl’s Love Song
The thing under my bed waiting to grab my ankle isn’t real. I know that, and I also know that if I’m careful to keep my foot under the covers, it will never be able to grab my ankle.
—Stephen King, Night Shift (via observando)
"It’s dark because you are trying
Lightly child, lightly.
Learn to do everything lightly.
Even though you’re feeling deeply,
let things happen, and
cope with them on tiptoes
and with no luggage,
The green line of vegetation running through Beirut.
She imagines him imagining her.
This is her salvation.
—Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
