written by sweetheart-thedrunk

i can’t wait
to come home
to your cigarette fog
and your ganja dreams
i miss the roughness
of your sheets
and the softness
of the sun
beaming through your window
i am hungry for our
taco truck
just down the street
and i thirst for our
32 ounces
from our gas station
along the way
i miss our urban kingdom
it was a place
where we
rotted in simplicity
i long to be
back in the place
that i call

home

End of the semester

Now that it is the end of the semester, I have a bunch of time to read while I am on vacation. While my book list is a mile long already… I’m always happy to have more suggestions :) Please let me know of any good reads!

that’s really all
I want need to say.

I wish you could show me what you see.  I wish I could see through you, into all your eyes hold and see it how you do.  I wish I could turn, look in my direction and for the very first time, see me too.  I wish, for a moment, I could see what you see, and see it now.

“Things are sweeter when they’re lost. I know—because once I wanted something and got it. It was the only thing I ever wanted badly…And when I got it it turned to dust in my hands.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned (via alighthouseofwords)

I have a thing for book porn - yeah, I’m one of those sick bastards who likes to read books about reading books - and the best of the season is My Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount and Thessaly La Forge. The book is full of brief interviews with writers, musicians, cooks, architects, and various other creatives about what reading has meant to them; each interview is accompanied by one of Ms. Mount’s absurdly appealing and simple paintings, depicting what would be on each person’s perfect bookshelf.
I couldn’t help myself. Here’s mine. From left to right: The Riverside Shakespeare, The Dead Zone, The Fixer, The Complete Stories (Bernard Malamud), The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, True Grit, The House With A Clock In Its Walls, Lonesome Dove, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, vol. 1, and Batman: Year One. Also shown is Moby Dick, which I haven’t read yet, but will start on the first of next year… because I think any ideal shelf would have to include at least one book I haven’t read, but which I’m really looking forward to.
Not pictured: a notebook, a pen, a mug, and some Weeping Angel tea from @52teas. Because these things go with my perfect bookshelf.
All this is by way of saying that I think My Ideal Bookshelf is a great little read, and The Ideal Christmas present for the bookworm in your life.
