Poem 49 by Emily Dickinson


Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems,
You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, (there are millions of suns left,)
You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books,
You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,
You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.
Excerpt from “Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman

My heart is so tired.
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief (via heisenbe)
