“Don’t say anything, because I see that you understand me, and I am afraid of your understanding. I have such a fear of finding another like myself, and such a desire to find one. I am so utterly lonely, but I also have such a fear that my isolation be broken through, and I no longer be the head and ruler of my universe. I am in great terror of your understanding by which you penetrate into my world; and then I stand revealed and I have to share my kingdom with you.”

— Anaïs Nin

i must share this blog. i am in love. only got through the first page, but i know i love it. her poetry just speaks to me in a way that i haven't felt since i first discovered Langston Hughes. she makes me want to quit and step my writing game up, all in the same breadth. Plus, she's gorgeous. I have a newly formed girl crush, and it has nothing to do with longing.

Oh the power of words!
