"I’m praying that your eyes are the first to go
the way they looked when you smiled
the way they opened and closed
and your nose, every single breath against my neck
and then your lips, every empty promise made and said"

Tablo, “Eyes, Nose, Lips” (via larmoyante)

"Fiction is a fantastic way of looking out through somebody else’s eyes. You get to experience loss and tragedy and death. But experience these things in a form which means that when you close the pages and put the book back on the shelf, it’s over and you’re home and you’re safe"

Neil Gaiman, during an interview with Robin Young on Here and Now  (via la-arboleda)

"America is quickly becoming two nations, one ruled over by fundamentalist Christians and their supporters and one that is becoming all the more secular over time, looking more and more like western Europe in its relative indifference to religion.
And caught in between are a group of liberal Christians that are culturally aligned with secularists and are increasingly and dismayingly seeing the concept of “faith” aligned with a narrow and conservative political worldview.
The number of Americans who cite “none” when asked about a religious identity is rising rapidly, up to nearly 20% from 15% in 2007, with a third of people under 30 identifying with no religious faith.
But even this may underrepresent how secular our country really is getting, as many people who say they belong to a church don’t really go to church much, if at all.
While Americans like to tell pollsters they go to church regularly, in-depth research shows they are lying and many of them blow it off, putting our actual church-going rates at roughly the same level of secular Western Europe. “

"It never happened,
That I loved this deep,
It didn’t happen, it never happened,
That I traveled with a woman,
To the country of passion,
And the beaches stroke her breasts,
Like the angry thunder,
Because, in the past, I didn’t love,
But I played the role of love,
It never happened,
That the love of a woman got me to the hanging,
I didn’t know any woman before you,
That defeated me, took my weapons,
That beat me, in my own kingdom,
That took my masks off of my face,
It never happened, my lady,
That I tasted fire, and burning,
Be sure, my lady,
Thousands will love you,
And you will receive love letters,
But you will never find, after me,
A man that loves with the honesty,
You will never find it,
Nor in the west,
Nor in the east."
