the word sanctuary
Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead. by Joss Whedon (via seabois)

There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you. by Beau Taplin || and you.  (via seulray)

Lips dressed
in droplets of
rosewater and
honey, jasmine-
scented locks the
color of nightfall
brushing against
porcelain skin;

he found
himself in an
heaven. by Noor Shirazie  (via lovely—delight)

Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars
and think of the galaxies inside my

ever want to make sense of all that
I am. by Christopher Poindexter  (via adieufranz)
