I dreamed once that I was stranded on a planet of the whitest sand, and the sky was white. that’s all there was — me, spilling drifts of white sand as wide as oceans, and a burning white sky. I was alone. and small. after days of wandering, I could smell My own rot, and I knew I’d die in these drifts of white under a hot sky, and I prayed for shade, and eventually it came. and it had a voice and a name. ‘Come,’ Darkness said, ‘come with me.’ but I was weak, I was rotting, I couldn’t rise to My knees. ‘Darkness,’ I said, ‘take My hand. Take Me away from this place.’ and Darkness did.
Darkness, take my hand (Dennis Lehane). (via ilanathepurple)

Before I met him, I would dance in the shower. When he was in my life, I would think about showering with him. After he left, I would sit on the ground in the shower and cry. When I got over him, I showered so quickly there was no time for dancing, fantasies or tears. Someone can invade the smallest parts of your life, you won’t even realize it until you dance in the shower again and wonder why you ever stopped.
