On your knees
begging me to
just please grace you with the
sound of my voice
as you gasp into the phone
choking back sobs.

It feels like a dance
the way you ask,
How can you?
the way I ask,
How could you?

You understand the depths.
You drink deeply because it might float you above those ravines
the deep crevasses in your mind that
can drag you down,
down,
down
unless you’re careful.

So careful.

They always say, it’s never who you expect.
What they mean is
I didn’t want to see.

You smell like meat and
smoke and
skin-oil.
I have your hands and your hair and your skin and
I hate it, sometimes.

Elana Bell, "Your Village"

"The true measure of power is not how deftly we can assert our authority but how much kindness and compassion we can show others in their greatest moments of vulnerability."

- How pioneering Victorian lady-journo Nellie Bly posed as insane in 1887 in her brave exposé of asylum abuse. (via explore-blog)

"The sentimental person thinks things will last.
The romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t."

- F. Scott Fitzgerald (via loveage-moondream)

There is only one way
to scream:
remembering that you’re…Palestinian.
One way to gaze at your face
in the bus window:
with the passing trees
and the porters who appear
whenever you stop.
One way
to reach the ozone layer:
lightly, like a balloon.
One way to cry:
because you really are…


The pearls were vital to me. When you actually pause for a shot where she looks at herself in the mirror with the pearls, which to me says everything’s flashing through her head, what it could have been if things have been different, if things have been fairer, if things have been you know, which side of the tracks are you born on the accident of all that. - Hans Zimmer

You’re still as smart as you were then, you just know more things.
