A little review : Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Lovely. Amazing. Wonderful. Wow.
My name is Maria, I like poetry, music, cats, flowers, beautiful people and pizza.

ok why does no one ever take me seriously


And she is the reader
who browses the shelf
and looks for new worlds
but finds herself.

I wish I were a poet. I’ve never confessed that to anyone, and I’m confessing it to you, because you’ve given me reason to feel that I can trust you. I’ve spent my life observing the universe, mostly in my mind’s eye. It’s been a tremendously rewarding life, a wonderful life. I’ve been able to explore the origins of time and space with some of the great living thinkers. But I wish I were a poet.

Albert Einstein, a hero of mine, once wrote, ‘Our situation is the following. We are standing in front of a closed box which we cannot open.’

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that the vast majority of the universe is composed of dark matter. The fragile balance depends on things we’ll never be able to see, hear, smell, taste, or touch. Life itself depends on them. What’s real? What isn’t real? Maybe those aren’t the right questions to be asking. What does life depend on?

I wish I had made things for life to depend on.

There are as many beautiful
women in the world as there
are women. My grandma
loves bread crust, which is a
silly thing to put in a poem,
but one day someone will
cut me off because I’m not
to their taste and the next
someone will sigh relief
because I’m just what they
were looking for.

how do you explain to someone that you cannot let a rhythm go? that you cannot relax, or not move with the beat? How do you explain to someone that those fucking 30 seconds on stage are the only chance you have at dancing your own style, which you created specifically to fit yourself, for another year? How do people not go mad from feeling like they’re trapped into only one or another style of dancing, even though you found an inbetween? Even though you prefer one style more than the other?

How do people stand doing solos and dancing on their own for a show? Exhilarating, but so disappointing that afterwards you can’t turn towards other people and grin in relief that it turned out as well as it did. How do people stand doing solos when coming off stage means hundreds of congratulations you aren’t sure if sincere or rather because you’re a lone person who created something altogether too weird and horrible and they simply pity you? 

i just had such a wtf night i swear to god

If I had learned anything by hanging out with her and her friends, it was that once you got up close to people, you realized that everyone - no matter how popular he or she might be - was just a living, breathing human being…

A skeleton with translucent skin stretched tight and high over her cheekbones sits at my kitchen table and asks for a coffee with a cigarette dangling between her blackened fingers. Her teeth are more yellow than I’ve ever seen them.
This mess of hollowed out bones curves outward where she does not sit up straight. Her hair is a tangled sweaty mess, her fringe lying limp on her forehead to be pushed impatiently out of her eyes. Her voice sounds like a dying breath. We sit at my kitchen table, the white tile floor glaring at our faces as we look down at the floor as if there are topics of conversation written on it. The loud silence fills up the room and every corner one may hide in to get away from it. We meet each other’s eyes and look away.
I have never seen eyes so dead.
I really really hope I don’t have to watch you die. (m.w)

It’s hard to care and feel sorry for things you did in the past when you can tell the people you did it to are flinging it in your face to get the satisfaction of your pain, not really because they care about showing you that you’ve hurt them.
You’ve always over-estimated how nice I am, nice people have their limits and you can go fuck yourself. What did you think, that I can’t live without you? (m.w)
