“When every dream has turned to dust,
and your highest hopes no longer soar.
When places you once yearned to see,
grow further away on distant shores.
When every night you close your eyes,
and long inside for something more.
Remember this and only this,
if nothing else you can recall—
There was a life a girl once led,
where you were loved the most of all.”
~ Lang Leav, Lullabies
“If it is with pain that you come upon me
Why do you think it strange that I flee?
I will no longer stay out of loyalty
If you have no love to spare,
then I beseech you, leave me be.” – gao
“..and the sunlight clasps the earth,
and the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?”
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley, Love’s Philosophy

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all…
– Emily Dickinson
