Your intuition knows what to write, so get out of the way.– Ray Bradbury (via iwl)
pseudopoetry: Reality is such a stressful plane. Every projection of reality appears to be a complete anti-thesis of the boisterous and fertile grounds of fantasies and dreams. But then it’s tangible. It’s the one that can be felt. Yet it’s so goddam easy to want to be numb.
