Warsan Shire
“You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.”
Warsan Shire

Richard Siken
“The way you slam your body into mine reminds me I’m alive, but monsters are always hungry, darling, and they’re only a few steps behind you, finding the flaw, the poor weld, the place where we weren’t stitched up quite right, the place they could almost slip right into through if the skin wasn’t trying to keep them out, to keep them here, on the other side of the theater where the curtain keeps rising. I crawled out the window and ran into the woods. I had to make up all the words myself. The way they taste, the way they sound in the air. I passed through the narrow gate, stumbled in, stumbled around for a while, and stumbled back out. I made this place for you. A place for to love me. If this isn’t a kingdom then I don’t know what is.”
Richard Siken, Crush

Rumi
“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
Rumi

Chuck Palahniuk
“It's not enough to be numbered with the grains of sand on the beach and the stars in the sky.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I am lost without my Boswell.

[Sherlock Holmes on Dr. Watson.]
Arthur Conan Doyle, A Scandal in Bohemia
