“Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”
Paul Brandt

David Levithan
“I always think of each night as a song. Or each moment as a song. But now I'm seeing we don't live in a single song. We move from song to song, from lyric to lyric, from chord to chord. There is no ending here. It's an infinite playlist.”
David Levithan, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

Bob Dylan
“How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.”
Bob Dylan

R.S. Grey
Something about you caught me by surprise
Though I always knew you’d be my demise.

“I didn’t want you to love me
Didn’t want you thinking of me
So I kept my distance
Tried to ignore your existence
I was blinded by my pride
With you, the Jekyll to my Hyde
But that’s where you found me
Baby, that’s where you unwound me
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to look at you, that’s a dance with death
I’d risk it all,
For you I would
You’d make me fall,
And fall I would
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to be by you, that’s a dance with death.

“I thought once was enough
You turned to me and called my bluff,
Maybe I should have walked away
but I couldn’t resist, I needed replay after replay
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to give you up, that’s a dance with death
We were over from the start
I never said I’d give my heart
So now it’s time for this to end
After all, a friend is just a friend
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to give you up, that’s a dance with death
So now it’s time for this to end
After all, a friend is just a friend.

Paul Laurence Dunbar

روح روز تابستانی و
نفسِ گل سرخی،
تابستان اما سپری شده است و
موسم گل‌ به آخر رسیده است

کجا رفته‌اند؟
که می‌داند، که می‌داند.

خون قلب منی و
جان آرامشی.
قلب من امّا سرد است و
جانم به سیاهی در نشسته است.

کجایی تو ای یار؟
که می‌داند، که می‌داند.

امید سالیان منی و
آفتاب برف‌های زمستانم.
سال‌ها اما
زیر آسمانی ابر اندود به پایان رسیده است.

کجا یکدیگر را باز خواهیم یافت؟
که می‌داند، که می‌داند

Paul Laurence Dunbar, The Lyrics Of Lowly Life

trying to become a fixture.
Inch by inch trying to reach her,

Worrying about your physical fitness,

Anthony Liccione
“She's my pride, my winning prize, always a surprise, to look into her eyes, see her free soul, as soap that slips from the grip of control; a stroll through the park on a dark night with stars to spark the sky, heaven with no price tag I realize, love is the same: endless, priceless, full bliss; to have this princess I pinch myself thinking this is a dream, but to my reprise, I can only say I am now, at last, alive.”
Anthony Liccione

“our love
stepping on to a plane
sitting down in a car
walking on unknown land
will either take us to where we belong
or throw us into darkness”

“রবিঠাকুর যখন “ভেঙে মোর ঘরের ‘তালা’ নিয়ে যাবি কে আমারে” না লিখে “ভেঙে মোর ঘরের ‘চাবি’ নিয়ে যাবি কে আমারে” লিখেন, তখন সেটা মোটেও বেমানান লাগে না কারণ তিনি বিশ্বকবি রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“রবিঠাকুরের “যদি তোর ডাক শুনে কেউ না আসে” গানের ১ম লাইনের পরের অংশটি আমাকে একটু ভাবিয়েছে- “তবে একলা চলো রে”। এখানে ছন্দ ও সুরের স্বার্থে ‘চলো’ মানানসই ঠিকই, কিন্তু শব্দটি ‘চল’ হবার কথা কারণ লাইনের শুরুতে ‘তোর’ শব্দটি বিদ্যমান!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“Oranges of Hiroshima - CORPUS CHRISTI -

shores of peach blossoms and swallows.
Goodbye to the godzila of my lips
drifting from your lips.
Goodbye to the galaxies
that expand towards the interior of a grain of sand.
Goodbye to the sea
of your smiles
in the salt of my thorns.
Goodbye son of man!
Goodbye shores of peach blossoms and swallows.”
Daniel Wamba

“Usually, I leave it alone since it’s none of my business, but with Ayden, I’m curious. I have questions. Lots and lots of questions. I make a vow to myself right then and there that one day, as his friend, I will get to know him and find out his story. Then, I’ll make him smile for real.”
Jessica Sorensen, Unraveling You
