I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.

― Ayn Rand (via psych-quotes)

everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Neruda, Pablo. “If You Forget Me.”  (via mrsclarkkent)


“you don’t look depressed though”

oh yeah sorry i forgot to bring my literal dark cloud with me today

Pinball Girl (By: Me)


Pinball Girl

Everyone hates a captive ball

A free ball sounds more appetizing—

But I the one who takes the fall.

God not slightly compromising,

When he drained, he drained all…

You control the flipper,

Equaling my precarious life.

Oh! magician—you would embitter;


My life has been one great big joke,
A dance that’s walked,
A song that’s spoke,
I laugh so hard I almost choke,
When I think about myself.
