"There were always in me two women at least. One woman, desperate and bewildered who felt she was drowning; and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest."

Anais Nin (via amfoley263)

"You come and the time slips away in a dream. It is only when you go that I realize completely your presence.
And then it is too late.
You numb me."

Henry Miller to Anaïs Nin (via jo-bailon)
