I think of reading a book as no less an experience than travelling or falling in love.
For a true poet, every moment of existence, every act, ought to be poetic since, in essence, it is so.
I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved...
Nothing is built on stone; All is built on sand, but we must build as if the sand were stone.
I saw all the mirrors on earth and none of them reflected me.
Poets, like the blind, can see in the dark.
I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart, I am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers
I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart, I am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat.
Don’t talk unless you can improve the silence.
Solitude weighs me down. Company does too.
Two souls don’t find each other by simple accident.
