A cry in the darkness

A howl of despite

A wolf’s lone starkness

In the pale moon’s light

Piercing the black

With an ancient might

Like a thundercrack

In the lap of the night

Quote reblogged from Nequams with 7,027 notes

So wherever you are, I hope you’re happy,
I really do.

I hope the stars are kissing your cheeks tonight.
I hope you finally found a way to quit smoking.
I hope your lungs are open and breathing your life.
I hope there’s a kite in your hand
that’s flying all the way up to Orion
and you still got a thousand yards of string to let out.
I hope you’re smiling
like god is pulling at the corners of your mouth.

‘Cause I might be naked and lonely,
shaking branches for bones,
but I’m still time zones away
from who I was the day before we met.
You were the first mile
where my heart broke a sweat.
And I wish you were here
I wish you’d never left.

— Andrea Gibson (via -moonshine-)

I built a fortress formed of words:
Four walls reached endless up and down.
Hell yawned at its base and heaven formed its crown…

The Briar Rose

By Christopher Courtley

Old Father Time will tell this tale again

And yet again in his senility:

Brave knights and princes ever rise and fall.

But in my dreams the story changes when

I hold you in my arms triumphantly

Beyond the high enchanted briar-wall

That spells eternal winter on your lair

With claws that catch your champions and rend

Your would-be conquerors, and hold them fast,

Like bone-white twigs entangled in your hair.

Against such charms, what armour can defend?

I strip myself, and naked of the past

Advance upon your bower without fear

For I am one with every fool who keeps

His faith in dreams, whose passing no one mourns

Because he walks alone, year after year

Into the wild wood where Beauty sleeps,

To die a hundred times upon her thorns.
