▴ the silmarillion
▴ game of thrones
▴ the legend of haolan
▴ lotr
▴ history
▴ billie eilish!

a state of mind indescribable-
when your eyes look but don't see,
when your ears hear but don't perceive,
when you know you are hurting

but you don't feel it at all

recommended reading:
▴ the gift of broken gemstones (silmarillion)
▴ straying remembrances (collection of poetry)
▴ metanoia (a short story)
▴ the story of an elleth in exile (silmarillion)

allure and torment of empty years
voluptuous wandering
seductive sorrow
impenetrable grief
hollow thoughts of despair
earthly passion
deceptive gaiety-

they teem with the sigh
that rises and falls in a long, drawn out note
hideous with its dotage
and beautiful with its passion

let yourself suffer the hurts that come to you
let yourself live and love the joys you deserve
both of these are facts of life
