I’m so sorry you had to go through that. Thank you. Thank you for finding a way to go on. Thank you for making meaning from the madness. Thank you for teaching us all about the vastness of power and soul we have even in the most devastating of days.

May the great and holy river, Ecstasy,
come rushing into the long grooves where the pain
made you deep.

May the capacity you have grown, in silent, secret ways
become floodgates of freedom and joy.

May the love of every soul
who did not have to endure what you have
BECAUSE you have,
heap more treasure upon your doorstep
then you can ever spend.

- Alison Nappi (via venuschild)

"This black Aphrodite is as important a guide to the erotic mysteries as the golden one, for every ecstatic sexual encounter is also an encounter with death. It is she who erases tension in our body, who cuts through inhibitions with her crazy laughter, who teaches us to let go of control and to let our small, seperate selves dissolve in her vastness. It is she who sets the lover’s soul free to soar. Therefore black is one of the colors of ecstatic love, the color of freedom and of infinite expansion.”~ Jalaja Bonheim, Aphrodite’s Daughters

Don’t go far off, not even for a day, because—
because—I don’t know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don’t leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don’t leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you’ll have gone so far
I’ll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?
- Pablo Neruda  - Don’t Go Far Off (via somecaryatid)

☆ she didn’t belong anywhere ☆“She didn’t belong anywhere and she never really belonged to anyone. And everyone else belonged somewhere and to someone. People thought she was too wonderful. But she only wanted to belong to someone. People always thought she was too wonderful to belong to them or that something too wonderful would hurt too much to lose. And that’s why she liked him— because he just thought she was crazy.”~ C. JoyBell C.☽☆☾Venuskind

“Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.” 
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes
