"I am terrified by this dark thing that sleeps in me."
Sylvia Plath (via freecocaine)
"Whosoever is delighted in solitude, is either a wild beast or a god."
Plato, Protag., I. 337 (via senturysam)
" Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way."
Janet Fitch, White Oleander (via sad-plath)
"There it goes again. That heavy feeling in your chest when you don’t feel any desire to speak or move. All you want to do is close your eyes and sleep, because the process of being broken is incredibly exhausting. You attempt your best to make your days fulfilling, but no matter how hard you try you can’t seem to connect to anyone or anything."
"I’m becoming more silent these days. I’m speaking less and less in public. But my eyes, god damn, my eyes see everything."
"I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else."
Bob Dylan (via spit-dirty)
