I love myself.
“ I feel this moving silence of yours speaking to me and it makes me want to weep with joy. You inhabit a different domain than mine, you are my complement. If it is true that our imaginations love the same images, desire the same forms, physically and organically you are warmth whereas I am cold. You are supple, languorous, whereas I am unyielding. I am calcined. I am like a mineral. What I fear most is that I may lose you during one of those periods when half of me is cut off from the other. What a divine joy it would be to possess a being like you who are so evanescent, so elusive.
— Anaïs Nin (via seabois)
“ The unknown is an abstraction; the known, a desert; but what is half-known, half-seen, is the perfect breeding ground for desire and hallucination.
— Juan José Saer (via seabois)
“ At fifteen you had the radiance of early morning, at twenty you will begin to have the melancholy brilliance of the moon.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise (via seabois)
“ that neverending nurturing you need.

“ Fetishes are literally viewed as fake forms of attraction. The fetish concept is used to delegitimatize attraction to any and all bodies that are not considered normative. This is why people are accused to have transgender fetishes and fat fetishes and disability fetishes, but never cisgender fetishes, thin fetishes or able-bodied fetishes. Even in cases in which the person in question exclusively partners with these latter groups.
