Time slowed for Coraline. The white fingers closed around the black key....”

“عانقني بــ قوة..
دَعني أتسلل داخل ضلوعك..
وإصنع لي بيتًا على ذلك الجبل الذي يُسمى قلبك..
بيتًا أختبئ فيه من كل مخاوفي؛
من البشر،
من عقلي،
من اكتئابي وكل أمراضي النفسيه،
وحتى خوفي من حُبك..
وعِدني أن لا تهجرني في هذا البيت،
أن تمر عليّ بين الحين والأخر
فإني أخاف الوحده،
وأخاف هجرك.”
مي عز الدين

“ولكن قبل أن تذهب.. أخبرني ماذا أقول للنجوم حينما تسألني عنك ؟
أخبرني كيف لي أن أقول لـ جسدي المُنهك إن حضنك لم يَعد ملجأه ؟
كيف لي أن أقول لـ قلبي المَنْهُوم أن يتوقف عن النبض لـِ أجلك ؟
كيف لي أن أقول لـ عقلي المُتمرد أن يتوقف عن التفكير بـ تفاصيلك ؟
كيف لي أن أقول لـ روحي البائسه أن تتوقف عن التعلق بالحياة لـِ أجلك ؟”
مي عز الدين

Hanns Heinz Ewers
“Wednesday, March 23 I know now that I love Clarimonda. That she has entered into the very fiber of my being. It may be that the loves of other men are different. But does there exist one head, one ear, one hand that is exactly like hundreds of millions of others? There are always differences, and it must be so with love. My love is strange, I know that, but is it any the less lovely because of that? Besides, my love makes me happy.

If only I were not so frightened. Sometimes my terror slumbers and I forget it for a few moments, then it wakes and does not leave me. The fear is like a poor mouse trying to escape the grip of a powerful serpent. Just wait a bit, poor sad terror. Very soon, the serpent love will devour you.

"The Spider”
Hanns Heinz Ewers, Nachtmahr: Strange Tales

“Afraid even to look at the sky
The birds of cage do seldom fly”
Vineet Raj Kapoor

Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Ninety-nine people out of a hundred, I suppose, would have been frightened out of their wits by the very first of his ugly shapes, and would have taken
to their heels at once. For, one of the hardest things in this world is, to see the difference between real dangers and imaginary ones.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys

“Timid
Predator
lurks
Deep in
shadows,
never
Tracked
as a
shadow
it flees
every step
taken
in its
direction.
It is fear.
It is nothing.
I am fearless.”
Jamie McIntosh

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Fear is what we’ve made something to be rather than understanding Who God is.”

“وهروبي منك
ليس لأنني لا أحبك
بل لأنني لا أحب ذاتي،
لأنني أدرك تمامًا أنني لا أصلح للحب،
إنني فتاة لا تُحب،
ولا تقوى على الحب..
أهرب لأنني ما عُدت أقوى على خذلان اخر.”
مي عز الدين

“خاف ألا يجمعنا فنجانان قهوة صنعوا بحب في شرفة منزلي
في ليلة يحتل فيها البرد منازل الجميع أما عني فلا أشعر سوى بدفء حضنك ودفء صوت أم كلثوم وهي تقول "يا حبيبي ايه أجمل من الليل واتنين زينا عاشقين”
مي عز الدين
