Τὸ ξέρω πὼς καθένας μοναχὸς πορεύεται στὸν ἔρωτα, μοναχὸς στὴ δόξα καὶ στὸ θάνατο.
Τὸ ξέρω. Τὸ δοκίμασα. Δὲν ὠφελεῖ. Ἄφησέ με νἄρθω μαζί σου ~ Η Σονάτα του Σεληνόφωτος

Δεν ζω ούτε στο παρελθόν μου, ούτε στο μέλλον μου. Έχω μόνο το παρόν, αυτό με ενδιαφέρει. Αν μπορείς να μένεις πάντα στο παρόν θα είσαι ένας ευτυχισμένος άνθρωπος, γιατί είναι πάντα και μόνο η στιγμή που ζούμε. ~ Paulo Coelho

But I never had the chance to ask


My mother warned me about cigarettes that could cause cancer
But she never told me that self-hatred can grow faster than any tumour ever could 

My father warned me that I should never stop thinking
But he never told me that overthinking would kill my happiness 

My sister warned me about other people who might make hurtful comments about me
But she never told me that instead of hearing someone else’s voice, I’d hear my own 

My brother warned me about drugs in baggies sold on the street,
But he never told me about the ones that people put in your glass when you’re not looking 

My grandmother warned me about the devil with his tail and red horns
But she never told me about his angelic smile and dark, ocean blue eyes 

My grandfather warned me about booze that could kill
But he never told me that if you drink enough alcohol, it tastes like love 

My cousin warned me that I should love my virginity to a guy I love
But she never told me he should love me, too 

My aunt warned me that if I kept eating that much, I might vomit
But she never told me that even without eating anything, you can hang over the toilet and puke 

My baby sitter warned me that a boy could break my heart
But she never told me that if I made him mad, he’d also break my arm and nose 

My teacher warned me about dangerous men with knives that could cut my throat
But she never told me that I didn’t need these men to cut my skin 

They all warned me that I shouldn’t do dangerous things that could kill me
But I never had the chance to ask them if slitting both of my wrists vertically
And taking thirty-eight aspirins, was one of these dangerous things.
