"

I grieve and dare not show my discontent;
I love, and yet am forced to seem to hate;
I do, yet dare not say I ever meant;
I seem stark mute, but inwardly do prate.
I am, and not; I freeze and yet am burned,
Since from myself another self I turned.

My care is like my shadow in the sun —
Follows me flying, flies when I pursue it,
Stands, and lies by me, doth what I have done;
His too familiar care doth make me rue it.
No means I find to rid him from my breast,
Till by the end of things it be suppressed.

Some gentler passion slide into my mind,
For I am soft and made of melting snow;
Or be more cruel, Love, and so be kind.
Let me or float or sink, be high or low;
Or let me live with some more sweet content,
Or die, and so forget what love e’er meant.

—Queen Elizabeth I, On Monsieur’s Departure (via thedarkersideofearth)

I’m A Fool To Want You by Billie Holiday from Lady In Satin (1958)

"Tell you the truth, she’s not that good-looking. She doesn’t stand out in any way. Her clothes are nothing special. The back of her hair is still bent out of shape from sleep. She isn’t young, either - must be near thirty, not even close to a “girl,” properly speaking. But still, I know from fifty yards away: She’s the 100% perfect girl for me. The moment I see her, there’s a rumbling in my chest, and my mouth is as dry as a desert."
Haruki Murakami, On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning (via sumusumumuriku)

"I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when I’m away from you, I love how you miss me
I love the way your kiss is always heavenly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me

I love how your heart beats whenever I hold you
I love how you think of me without being told to
I love the way your touch is always tenderly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me

I love how your eyes close each time that you kiss me
And when I’m away from you, I love how you miss me
I love the way your kiss is always heavenly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me”

She’s effortlessly cool
But circumstances can be cruel
And sometimes you must accept
That you can’t always get what you want
