Leylah Attar
“It said I was equal parts earth and stars, equal parts animal and soul. I was hope. I was calamity. I was love. I was prejudice. I was my sister. I was his daughter. I was Juma. I was Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack.”
Leylah Attar, Mists of the Serengeti

Leylah Attar
“I pulled back, my eyes still closed, knowing that I had just stolen an epic moment from life.”
Leylah Attar, Mists of the Serengeti

Alessandra Torre
“When you really love someone, you cannot walk away. No matter what they do. No matter the lies from their mouth, or the actions from their bodies, you tie yourself tightly to their sail and vow to be there through thick and thin. Let the wind blow you where it may. Even if that place is a crash. Even if that place tears you apart and kills anything good.”
Alessandra Torre, Black Lies

Leylah Attar
“This is what it looks like when you wander somewhere between the sand and stardust, and meet a piece of yourself in someone else.”
Leylah Attar, Mists of the Serengeti

Warsan Shire
“The Kitchen
Half a papaya and a palmful of sesame oil;
lately, your husband’s mind has been elsewhere.
Honeyed dates, goat’s milk;
you want to quiet the bloating of salt.
Coconut and ghee butter;
he kisses the back of your neck at the stove.
Cayenne and roasted pine nuts;
you offer him the hollow of your throat.
Saffron and rosemary;
you don’t ask him her name.
Vine leaves and olives;
you let him lift you by the waist.
Cinnamon and tamarind;
lay you down on the kitchen counter.
Almonds soaked in rose water;
your husband is hungry.
Sweet mangoes and sugared lemon;
he had forgotten the way you taste.

Sour dough and cumin;
but she cannot make him eat, like you.”
Warsan Shire, Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth
