metaphorformetaphor:

nobody can save you but
yourself.
you will be put again and again
into nearly impossible
situations.
they will attempt again and again
through subterfuge, guise and
force
to make you submit, quit and/or die quietly
inside.

nobody can save you but
yourself
and it will be easy enough to fail
so…

"Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones. Take blue in all its nuances, from the darkest to the lightest — it will always stay blue."
— Raoul Dufy

memoryslandscape:

This is the world, which is fuller
and more difficult to learn than I have said.
You are right to smudge it that way
with the red and then
the orange: the world burns.

Margaret Atwood, from “You Begin,” Mississippi Review (vol. 39, no. 1-3, 2012)
