I have crossed over to a place where I never thought I'd be. I am someone I would have never imagined. A secret. A dream. I am this, body and soul. Burn me. Drown me. Tell me lies. I will still be who I am. ~Alice Hoffman

hold my hand

I remember a dawn when your heart got tied in my hair / my soul heard something from your soul / my heart drank from your spring / I drowned / and the flood swept me... ~Rumi

ophelia, drowning, bathtub

Diego Alborghetti

They forced her last step to the bottom of the sea. There she is waiting for her love, to come set her free...

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND YOU WOULDN'T TAKE MY HAND I WATCHED YOU FALL INTO THE OCEAN BELOW

My entire life, screaming past in a blur. And all I can do is try to remember what starlight looks like.

"On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping, White Ophelia floats like a great lily; Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils... " ("Ophelia" by Rimbaud)
