She stuck a bookmark
in my heart
and walked away.

One must bear in mind the odd angle or slant that the rays of love have to take in order to reach a heart like mine.

— Saul Bellow, Humboldt’s Gift (via creatingaquietmind)

I wake up each morning wanting more of you. First, it was your lips, then it was your hands, now it is your heart.

Now, it is always your heart.

But most hearts say, I want, I want, I want, I want. My heart is more duplicitous, though no twin as I once thought. It says, I want, I don’t want, I want, and then a pause.

Margaret Atwood, “The Woman Who Could Not Live With Her Faulty Heart,” from Two-Headed Poems (via lifeinpoetry)

I am war drum, with goose pimpled skin pulled tight over a hollow chest and a heart that strikes up a battle rhythm every time you touch me.

'This will serve me a lesson,' said he, 'to look where I step. For if I should kill another bug or beetle I should surely cry again, and crying rusts my jaws so that I cannot speak.' Thereafter he walked very carefully, with his eyes on the road, and when he saw a tiny ant toiling by he would step over it, so as not to harm it. The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything.

'You people with hearts,' he said, 'have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful. When Oz gives me a heart of course I needn't mind so much.'

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz L. Frank Baum

Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

— Khalil Gibran (The Prophet)
