it’s a sleepless night, tonight. I miss you on sleepless nights.
maybe it’s the coffee I had before class tonight. maybe it’s the weather. maybe it’s because you silently announced your arrival back. and maybe it’s the way I’ve stayed fascinated with you, the way you’ve stayed in love with her.
it’s not a competition, but I can’t help feel as if I’m competing with a shadow.

"… And my mother again would say to me, "You can’t eat beauty. It doesn’t feed you." And these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.
And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty, was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul.”
