The more perfect the artist, the more completely separate in him will be the man who suffers and the mind which creates; the more perfectly will the mind digest and transmute the passions which are its material.
—T.S. Eliot (via sirui)
—Too Soaked To Break
BORN RUFFIANS \TOO SOAKED TO BREAK/
Me and you, we make art
With one another’s body parts
And we dance with so much heart
Feel our way through the dark
Get rid of the past and don’t forget a thing
You’re one of the last with a young one’s heart just surfacing
Get out of there fast and don’t regret a thing
You’re one of the last with a swollen heart that’s far too soaked to break
"When they don’t love you the way you want to, you mourn that for however long you need to. But then you get back up and you remind yourself. You are not a reflection of the people who can’t love you. You will love again. You will be loved again." - Caitlyn Siehl
