[In the dark you hear movement— a squeak, a hiding.] The heart opens,
closes, opens.

Arkaye Kierulf, from “The End” (via the-final-sentence)

It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream—making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is of the very essence of dreams…No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one’s existence—that which makes its truth, its meaning—its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream-alone.

Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness  (via mirroir)

I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.
