VICTORIA VARDOT

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”

“Have patience and endure;
this unhappiness will one day be beneficial.”

—   Ovid, Amorum (16 BC), III. 11. 7.

Deny thy father and refuse thy name;

Holly Golightly:

He's all right! Aren't you, cat? Poor cat! Poor slob! Poor slob without a name! The way I see it I haven't got the right to give him one. We don't belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's.

Paul Varjak:

Tiffany's? You mean the jewelry store.

Holly Golightly:

That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!

But don’t give up until
True love finds you in the end.

a graze releases more truths than our eyes
an embrace freezing time and weaning off lies
our hands laced with unrealized desires —-a crave, a crave!
a crease, a crease for every promise I save, I’m a slave
to the possibilities of forever residing in your silk skin
I kiss my hands to give my lips a taste of where its been
and I thank the firmaments for the power of a single touch
for I shall never have to feel anything less than this much

Claude Debussy - Valse romantique

écouter mon corps, écouter attentivement mon empressement

“Maybe, in the final analysis, they saw me as something I wasn’t and I tried to turn them into something they could never be. I loved them all but maybe I never understood any of them. I don’t think they understood me.”

—   Ava Gardner
Taking Back Sunday - Cute Without the 'E'

I just need to keep you in mind as something larger than life 

Claude Debussy - Arabesque No. 1. Andantino con moto

Je n’ai pas besoin de vous ou des ailes pour voler

Pluvia

I love the pitter-patter,
those light taps
reminiscent
of you washing away

Our goodbye,
a passing, a sedation
a storm finally at rest

Now,
I’m here.

Through all
of the darkness and torrent,
my own light exuded

As the raindrops
dance on my window,
I embrace my surroundings
Our end was my beginning
