the word sanctuary
Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars
and think of the galaxies inside my
heart, and truly wonder if anyone will
ever want to make sense of all that
I am. by Christopher Poindexter  (via adieufranz)

There are so many fruits you haven’t tasted

so many beautiful songs you have not discovered

spices you’ve never heard of 

and intriguing conversations you haven’t had 

there are oceans you have not felt 

and plants you’ve never seen

books you’ve never read

and souls your heart has not touched

this Earth is incredible.

She burns with a nervous brightness that at times is unbearable to watch. Life itself is too treacherous for this woman to survive it…not because she is fragile, necessarily…but because she is sensitive. The world is not kind to its most sensitive members. And she is a master fantasist, escape artist, and pretender. She has to be. by Alexander Walker, on Vivien Leigh’s character in A Streetcar Named Desire (via violentwavesofemotion)
