dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the moment of realization that your quintessential self isn’t going to show up, which forces the role to fall upon the understudy, the humble kid for whom nothing is easy, who has spent years mouthing their lines in the wings before stumbling out into the glare of your life, which by then is already well into its second act.

" toska [tohs-kah] "
- (noun) A Russian word – “Vladmir Nabokov describes it best: ‘No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.’” (via ancient-serpent)

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the awareness of the smallness of your perspective, by which you couldn’t possibly draw any meaningful conclusions at all, about the world or the past or the complexities of culture, because although your life is an epic and unrepeatable anecdote, it still only has a sample size of one, and may end up being the control for a much wilder experiment happening in the next room.

" Anoche tuve insomnio por dolor de ausencia. Fue de repente: La cama se partió por la mitad justo cuando estaba encima, en mi lado izquierdo, provocando un ruido ensordecedor que realmente era el grito de un “¡vuelve!” desde la otra mitad, que acababa de romperse en pedazos. Porque si algo pasa en las personas que adoran la soledad, es que se les hace insoportable aguantar la ausencia de alguien cuando ésta le da por hacerles compañía. Por aquello de que tres son multitud. O quizá porque es mejor abrazar tu almohada que pasar las noches durmiendo con alguien para quien no eres un sueño cumplido. La cuestión es que, no sé si te habrá pasado alguna vez, pero me encuentro en esa etapa de la vida en el que después de haberlo apostado todo tantas veces, me he cansado de jugar la última carta y no encontrar nunca su pareja. Así que no rompas este castillo de naipes si no vas a estar aquí cuando construya otro nuevo en el que ponerte a ti, a mi lado, en la cima. "

" Y ya lo dijo el escritor; somos lo que hacemos por cambiar lo que somos. Y yo me pregunto si realmente estamos tan equivocados. Me pregunto qué boca no acaba en silencio con tantas preguntas sin respuesta. Qué goma sobrevive al borrón y cuenta nueva de aquellas historias con final trágico. Porque sí, siempre pensamos que podríamos ser algo más, pero nadie es así de incorregible hasta que aprende a significar lo que merece. Y merecer lo bueno y lo peor. Será que somos lo que vivimos. Será que somos el error y el acierto indefinido. Y es que algunos de los mejores momentos de la vida son los que no puedes contar. Como cuando sientes algo indescriptible y te quedas sin palabras "

" I think about how there are certain people who come into your life and leave a mark. The ones who are as much a part of you as your own soul. Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless. If you had a lifetime to talk, there would still be things left unsaid. "

" You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in. Now, go out and create something. "

"

A bouquet of clumsy words: you know that place between sleep and awake where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? I wish we could feel like that more often. I also wish I could click my fingers three times and be transported to anywhere I like. I wish that people didn’t always say ‘just wondering’ when you both know there was a real reason behind them asking. And I wish I could get lost in the stars.

Listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door, let’s go.

"

But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle, it’s all over. Germany, having trounced England’s famous midfield trio of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes in the semi-final, have been beaten by the odd goal.

rsvnr:

I think once you accept that you’re alone, it starts to feel a little better. You start to enjoy your own company and those silences you dread are no longer filled with that ache of loneliness. You start to focus on yourself; you find your own happiness, or your own definition of it.

You find out about yourself, your identity not defined by the people around you.

You find you.

" ¿Cuántos recuerdos caben en una hoja de papel? Yo diría que tantos cómo caben en la piel, en la memoria, en los labios, en la lengua. Pero yo no quiero escribir de ti cómo si fueses un recuerdo. No quiero que te conviertas en extraño. Convertirte en un recuerdo es el primer paso del olvido voluntario, del terrible conformismo. Yo te hablo en presente, nomas en presente, aunque no te tenga. No te conjugo en pasado porque me pesa, no te conjugo en futuro porque no te tengo. Te hablo en presente, cómo si viera tus días, cómo si no sumara en el calendario seis lunas llenas sin ti. Y te amo eterno, sin tiempo, sin fecha de caducidad, sin limite. Te amo ahora porque es lo único que tengo. Pensando en que efectivamente la eternidad es una sucesión de bienvenidas infinitas y furtivas. No eres un recuerdo, eres el instante mismo en que te pienso. "
