"I peeled off my skin wishing to be what I would never become and you said forget and I forgot the name of my father, my mother, my country."

Daniel Borzutzky, from The Book of Interfering Bodies. (via lifeinpoetry)

"Because I had decided to run the other way, my detachment opened her to me and her melancholy tumbled out in mysterious bits. Happiness, sorrow, and abuse were mixed up like vegetables in a soup — the broth, her essence from moment to moment. Yet I was held not so much by her tragedy as by a single gesture — the way she knitted her long hair, sheets upon sheets of fine caramel webs, with two fingers and tossed it back from her face. It was a gentle, careless motion, the way I supposed she pushed the sadness back from her brown eyes."

Andrew X Pham, from Catfish and Mandala (via commovente)
