Simply Sunday #31

simply sunday

Simply Sunday is a reading meme hosted by Books For a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you share your favorite quote; be it from a book, movie, novella, song, ect.

My favorite quote this week is from L.H.Z.:

You love him despite the burden of Atlas resting on his shoulders, and he loves you despite the death still clinging to your lips, and the blood drying at it’s corners. What a pair you make.

Why I Chose It

I’ve been enjoying short, profound, Tumblr poetry. It’s modern and simple, yet, demonstrates the depth of human emotion. I think that when it comes to love we love the other person no matter their flaws, mistakes, and burdens. We accept the bad parts just as we do the good. L.H.Z. depicts this same concept with a little more angst, depth, and bleakness to an emotion that is often seen in light.

I hope everyone has a happy holiday! I’ll be stuffing my face and going into a food coma 😛

  1. What a small & beautiful poem – thank you so much for sharing, dear Emma! It brings me such warmth to think that poets are finding a platform on such a ubiquitous place as Tumblr; how lovely to think that it’s easier than ever before to find & revel in their work. Saving this small piece for a rainy day when a reminder of love amongst the ashes is so needed. ❤
