“And for all he had learned to bandage himself up on the outside, the wound remained just as bad and deep as the moment it had been made - when it became obvious that the one male he wanted above all others was never, ever going to be with him.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Unleashed

Julie Garwood
“I'll see she gets them," Brodick said.
Judith shook her head. "I want to meet her," she explained. She stood up and walked over to the table. "I have messages to give her from her mother."
"I'll be happy to show you the way," Alex volunteered.
"I'll do it," Gowrie announced in a much firmer voice.
Brodick shook his head. "Isabelle is my sister-in-law," he snapped. "I'll show Judith the way."
Iain had opened the door, and stood there listening to the argument. He was having difficulty believing what he was hearing… and seeing. His warriors were acting like lovesick squires while they argued over who would escort Judith.”
Julie Garwood, The Secret

Orhan Pamuk
“Das echte Liebesleid nistet sich an der Basis unserer Existenz ein, erwischt uns unerbittlich an unserem schwächsten Punkt, greift von da auf alles andere über und verteilt sich unaufhaltsam über unseren ganzen Körper und unser ganzes Leben. Wenn wir unglücklich verliebt sind, dienen unsere sämtlichen Leiden und Sorgen, vom Tod des Vaters bis hin zum banalsten Missgeschick, wie zum Beispiel einem verlegten Schlüssel, als neuerlicher Auslöser für den Urschmerz, der stets bereit ist, wieder anzuschwellen. Wessen Leben durch die Liebe auf den Kopf gestellt wird, so wie meines, der meint immer, zusammen mit dem Liebesleid würden auch alle anderen Sorgen ein Ende finden, und so rührt er unwillkürlich immer wieder an der Wunde in sich drinnen.”
Orhan Pamuk, Masumiyet Müzesi

Gregory Maguire
“He had thought love as a policy made a lot of sense for those who could manage it, and anyone who could manage it belonged in religious life. The rest of us have to struggle with more ordinary love, the common or garden variety: love as a crippling condition. Love as a syndrome.”
Gregory Maguire, The Next Queen of Heaven

Virginia Woolf
“He felt himself now, as he had often fancied other people, adrift on the stream, and far removed from control of it, a man with no grasp upon circumstances any longer. Old battered man loafing at the doors of public-houses now seemed to be his fellows, and he felt, as he supposed them to feel, a mingling of envy and hatred towards those who passed quickly and certainly to a goal of their own. They, too, saw things very thin and shadowy, and were wafted about by the lightest breath of wind. For the substantial world, with its prospect of avenues leading on and on to the invisible distance, had slipped from him.”
Virginia Woolf

Mukta Singh-Zocchi
“Do you know I have lost my heart to you?” His voice rustled like starched silk when trampled upon. “I am losing my sleep as well. And when sleep does come, I dream only of you.” He murmured.”
Mukta Singh-Zocchi, The Thugs & a Courtesan

“I have to write.
I have to write and re-write myself in all that's hidden within me.
The unspoken heart is the place I need to travel to,
to rediscover the language that I had lost.

I felt and hoped myself empty in dreams that never belonged to me.
So how can I be with myself?

My heart struggled itself out of my body, lying shattered in pieces all over the places I've never been to and won't ever be, while my head is the only thing remaining, dethinking itself in all that hadn't been and won't ever be.”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“I loved so much
so often, so hard
maybe that's why I feel
so all over the place”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

Knut Hamsun
“What was the point of spelling out the details? And anyway, wasn’t a poor soul allowed to have a little genuine lovesickness to cope with on top of everything else? Without further ado, Rolandsen went up to his office, straight to the instrument, and asked one of the operators at the Rosengaard telegraph station to send him half a cask of cognac at the first opportunity. There was no sense in carrying on like this forever.”
Knut Hamsun, Dreamers

“ever since I met you
my heart cannot retire”
Dahi Tamara Koch

I misread myself
in you

I opened up
like a book

and innocence
turned the page

but you remain
the book of seven seals

tearing my pages apart”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“eyes like fairytales
you don't believe in”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“whenever you go
the heavens shed the tears
I'm not able to weep”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“we can live in none but the present
the past is past

the bygone days
cannot be filled with life

we are no time travellers”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“I sleep when I'm awake
and wake up when I'm asleep
never-ending night within me –
my songs fading away
on my muted lips

put your smile on my mouth
that dreams of you
kiss me awake
let my morning dawn

gift me the tomorrow
I cannot behold
for all I see is darkness”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“the last words have been spoken
hanging over my head – the sword of Damocles
since the beginning of time

I will keep on weeping
over thoughts and over you
wandering about all of my rooms

your absence is all around me
and the silence is more frightening
then any sound has been before

too much is truth in those words:
that wonders are falsehood
and the days are gone, never to return”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“The last thing that I want you to do is to think that you need to become someone more 'conventional', emotionally-flat and unreactive, because this is a). impossible (suppression never equals healing) and b). entirely unnecessary. Serial limerents are normally quick-witted, verbally-expressive, perceptive, emotionally-astute, analytical lovers of life; I am yet to help someone suffering from limerence who has not had a beautiful command of their first language, someone unusual hobbies and a great degree of interest in affairs of the humand mind. This curious essence does not need to be tampered with in any way, and this is why I treat limerence the way that I do; the wonderful thing about considering the pathology from a psychological-touching-on-spiritual perspective is that it allows you to spot-treat your psyche, only altering elements that do not serve you.”
Lucy Bain, The Limerent Mind: How to Permanently Beat Limerence and Shine
