Eclectic Like Furniture

“You are so good. So good, you’re always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you’re gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don’t it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it.”
— Silas House, This is My Heart for You (via wethinkwedream)

Dust-heavy bookshelves petrify
in the back room with lights out.
Cardboard coffins hold skeletons
of stories without backbones,
yellowed with time and peeling
in spots shaped like bruises
or bedsores.

They can be taken out, briefly
for a two hour walk to the copy
machine, but some crumble
when they see the light.

Words once so vital they were
written and preserved, read
and reread - they turn to dust
and linger like ghosts,
abridged to the musty
aroma of old paper.

Secret Fore-Edge Paintings Revealed in Early 19th Century Books at the University of Iowa

Oh! Here is the version from Colossal. Almost the same!

your identity is not defined by the mistakes you have made, the scars you have earned or the tears you have cried.

you are a precious manifestation of the entire length and breath of the universe poured into one love-giving, ground-shaking, change-making spirit - you are a force to be reckoned with.

on days when you are overwhelmed by the sadness, try to remember who you are and why you are here.
