Insensibility

Floating, I’m weightless and alone,

Buoyed up by the water’s insubstantial hands.

There’s nothing in the world but this.


Serenity and tranquillity are my only anchors,

Dragging me down further with each soft breath,

I’ve found a place where even my heart is silent.


Drifting along, there’s nothing for miles,

An empty horizon of lonely waves and water.

There’s nothing in the world but this.


Grey clouds, noiselessly swimming above,

Whisper promises of oblivion before my sightless eyes.

I’ve found a place where even my heart is silent.


I’ve long since forgotten the reason why,

Bitter thoughts ebbing away with the ceaseless tide,

There’s nothing in the world but this.


On this whispering sea of apathy and ambivalence,

I finally feel at peace, away from everything.

I’ve found a place where even my heart is silent.

There’s nothing else in the world but this.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

jazzylovesdogssomuch: this book overall was really great. the plot is fantastic with its forbidden love vibe, and how the author hints when there’s going to be a plot change. however, i would’ve really liked parts of the book to be in Conrad’s perspective which i think really would’ve made the book more interesting. o...
