“If I could have had
him,
I could have let
him
go.

But without
the having,
there was nothing—
so to the nothing,
I
hold.”

Friendship plants itself as a small unobtrusive seed; over time, it grows thick roots that wrap around your heart. When a love affair ends, the tree is torn out quickly, the operation painful but clean. Friendship withers quietly, there is always hope of revival. Only after time has passed do you recognise that it is dead, and you are left, for years afterwards, pulling dry brown fibres from your chest.

He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count them up: what then? The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune.

Mr. Fezziwig's Ball
, illustrated by John Leech for Charles D*ckens' A Christmas Carol, 1843.

"The way you do anything is the way you do everything"

Can't remember where I read that quote but has always stuck with me.

“People abandoned one another constantly without performing the courtesy of actually disappearing. They left, but didn’t, lurking about, a constant reminder of what could or should have been.”

‘ The Pen ‘

“I made love to her on paper.
and spilled ink like passion
across the sheets.
I caressed her curves in
every love letter.
I kissed up and down her
thighs in short sentences
and prose.
I tasted all her innocence,
without a spoken word.
I bit her lip and pulled
her hair, in between the lines,
I made her arch her back
and scream,
It only took a pen.”
