"   Slowly he slipped his touch
Down her bare skin
And watched in pure delight
As she started to tremble   "

blank mirrors &

Forget prayer,
this is where we stand:

Take your mouth
put it anywhere you please.
Your mouth, my stomach
Your mouth, my thighs

I will be all three:
your altar
your holy wine
and your bent knees

he would know me

years from now, even
in the dark, even

without my skin.   "

Happy New Moon in Leo! ⚫♌

yeshecholwa:

"A New Moon occurs on Saturday, July 26th, 2014, at 6:42 PM EDT.

On Saturday evening, a New Moon occurs, marking the beginning of a new cycle. The Cancer New Moon cycle ends and the Leo New Moon cycle begins. The New Moon in Leo is an excellent time for formulating some goals regarding “all things Leo”. Concentrate on new ways to enhance your romantic life, creative endeavors and hobbies, and relationship with children. Think about the keywords for this self-expressive fire sign — such things as proud, magnanimous, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, and open — and consider ways to incorporate these traits into your personality. With this potent Leo energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. It’s time to make some plans and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs. Concentrate on new ways to enhance romance and creativity, and to build up your feelings of confidence and pride.

The New Moon aligns with Jupiter, occurring only two days after the Sun aligns with Jupiter in early Leo, and this encourages us to focus our energies on growing, improving, and expanding. A New Moon on its own brings rather impulsive energy, but with this New Moon also square Mars, the tendency is heightened. We should be especially careful of making big statements or promises without first thinking of our abilities and the potential consequences.” (via)

"   The final mystery is oneself. When one has weighed the sun in the balance, and measured the steps of the moon, and mapped out the seven heavens star by star, there still remains oneself. Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?   "

"   They all shared a certain coolness, a cruel, mannered charm which was not modern in the least but had the strange cold breath of the ancient world : they were magnificent creatures, such eyes, such hands, such looks - sic oculos, sic ille manus, sic ora ferebat.   "

"   I am the lady of the castle. My name is exile. My name is anguish. My name is longing. Far from the world on the windy crests of the mountain, I am kept in absolute seclusion, my time passes in an endless reverie, a perpetual swooning. I am both the Sleeping Beauty and the enchanted castle; the princess drowses in the castle of her flesh.   "

I sleep
with the wolves
in my head
and wake up in
my own blood

we love the
things that
kill us

"   So look at the fleeting stars with fleeting eyes, and feel how the earth beneath you gives. It is all a temporary manifestation of particles and it is all unraveling to particulate silence. The bustle of the human day will come and will go. And then there will be night.

But how beautiful these moments within the dissolve. What a temporary perfection we can find in this passing world: everything good ever done, everything good that was done today and all the good people doing it, and back and back, and forward and forward. All that beauty within a universe unraveling.

Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small. And yet it is. How unlikely. How fantastic. And stupid. And excellent.   "
