Hello, old friend, I say, yet you still haven’t
said a word
all this time. Every visit
is accompanied with your silence, frozen
throughout these years, you see, and what have
you say of family, of friends, of spring and all,
of summers or snow? The windows
of your house will have their wintergreen
this time of year—never worry about their color
when icy pallor stows tears
despite what blizzards
steal our sight. Do not fear others
forgetting about you, for you’ll be like me
and listen to the seasons
flash and flare in your sleep. Now you, standing
there, it’s obvious you’ve not changed
one bit, old friend, so please:
talk to me. I’m still here waiting for you
to let go, to go—to grow.

"You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you."
Haruki Murakami (via notyourlittleslave)
"I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin."
Leonard Cohen (via perfect)
