Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.
Donald Winnicott (via themajorreview)
I love you, and I’ll always love you. And, before I knew you, I was like a completely different person. Not even a person, really. And I’d seen what love could do to people, and it was… hurt, and sadness. Alone was better. And then, suddenly, there was you! And you knew me. You saw me. And it was this… thing. You make me feel safe and warm, so I get it now. I finally get love…

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.
