It’s not enough to have a lot in common. You have to want to touch them. Need to touch them. You have to need to know the inside of their skin as well as the outside. And you shouldn’t have to think about holding hands or kissing. If it’s right, one day you will just fall into one another like waves on a beach.

I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living. Anais Nin (via blua)

You are in an in-between,
in a world with no memories,
so forget your hands and what
they’ve done before.
Forget your fingers.
Float in this kingdom.

Be the kind of brave you’ve only ever read about
in books, then be braver than that.

Be boneless, but keep your spine.
Bend and bend and bend yourself
into a bridge that you haven’t burned yet,
then cross it.

You are more than you thought you were.
Unbroken and perfect,
healing like the bruise on your knee,
singing like a hymn where the only
words are
“I saved myself.”

Swallow the old world.
Swallow the darkest it’s ever been
and then keep it down until it
You are here now.

You are here and you are
the forgiveness in every mouth.
You are here, and you are glowing
like early morning.

Welcome back. Welcome home. Caitlyn Siehl, You Are Here (via alonesomes)
