Who did I think I was? Who did I think that I could be?
Oh, how dare me. Oh, how dare me.
And there’s a voice in the back of my head,
in the back of my head, says, “Let ‘em be.”
"Just let them be happy."
I’m gonna go crazy.
Are you a piece of art because I’d like to nail you up against a wall
The Goddess of Spring - 1934
it all started with closed eyes
and a feeling in my gut telling me
i need to keep them shut the whole time
because if they opened even for a second and i saw your lips
they’d suck me in like black holes when they bend light
and it was then i realized you were not my world
you were my universe
Athanasia Kekebanou, Frozen in Time, 2013, Reflection on wet sand
