LitSluts.: You Are Tired (I Think) by E.E. Cummings

literaturesluts:

You are tired,

(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.

Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)

You have played,
(I think)
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
Just tired.

“I hated labels anyway. People didn’t fit in slots—prostitute, housewife, saint—like sorting the mail. We were so mutable, fluid with fear and desire, ideals and angles, changeable as water.”

“I wish slitting the wrist of the clock
would let this moment last forever”

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”

—   Henry David Thoreau (via creatingaquietmind)

“If we were all on trial for our thoughts, we would all be hanged.”

Denise Levertov, “Keeping Track”

sharingpoetry:

Between chores—
                        hulling strawberries,
                        answering letters—
or between poems,

returning to the mirror
to see if I’m there.

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”

“‎Why don’t you tell me that ‘if the girl had been worth having, she’d have waited for you?’ No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.”
