the heart is a lonely hunter

Is fake love better than real love? Real love is responsibility, compromise, selflessness, being present, and all that shit. Fake love is magic, excitement, false hope, infatuation, and getting high off the potential that another person is going to save you from yourself.

Melissa Broder, So Sad Today




You were always good at desire, passion, sex. Rare moments so intense you almost feel safe, almost connected to another.


When thus I hail the moment flying:
“Ah, still delay — thou art so fair!”
Then bind me in thy bonds undying,
My final ruin then declare!


Goethe,
Faust I, A study [Translation by Bayard Taylor]


Retreat to the shadows you belong to.
