"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul."
- Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets (via feellng)
"Dark thing,
make a myth of yourself:

all women turn into lilacs,

all men grow sick of their errant scent.
You could learn

to build a window, to change flesh
into isinglass, nothing

but a brittle river, a love of bone."
- Jennifer Chang, from “This Corner of the Western World,” The History of Anonymity (University of Georgia Press, 2008)

Large Magellanic Clouds & Tarantula Nebula NGC 2070

A drokke bled here.

There are only red flowers in the fields, red like the colour of fresh blood. The scent that rises is like earth touched by drops of rain, with a hint of honey.

Yibrilna nestle their small bodies in the grass and flowers, their skin as black as the night sky, lips red like the flowers they nurture. And when the stars are out at night, the Yibrilna hum softly. They stretch out their arms to catch the glittering stardust as it falls.
