Thank you for reminding me what it feels like to be excited about my life.  You made the mask I wear feel like an actual part of my face.  But nothing lasts and I must delve deeper into myself to rekindle the flame that’s beginning to flicker and lie dormant.

"The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd; the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are."
- Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet (via fourteendrawings)
