Wir warten zu lange auf Dinge die nicht passieren.
Text 19 Mar 582 notes


In the silence of consciousness I asked myself:
why did I reject my life? And I answer
Die Erde überwältigt mich:
the earth defeats me.

I have tried to be accurate in this description
in case someone else should follow me. I can verify
that when the sun sets in winter it is
incomparably beautiful and the memory of it
lasts a long time. I think this means

there was no night.
The night was in my head.

—Louise Glück, from  “Landscape” in  Averno (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006)
