a. rimbaud

Capisci che una persona non ti ama più quando non ti chiede come stai, quando ritarda, quando ti dimentica, quando non ha più tempo.

Capisci che non ti ama più quando non cura le tue ferite, quando lascia a casa l’antidoto, quando ride con gli altri e non con te.

I dettagli, sono i dettagli a fregarci. L’amore è un dettaglio.

Non è una questione di pienezza, di totalità, è invece una questione di gesti, di sguardi.

Se mancano, manca l’amore.

— Rimbaud

what do all these beloved classic authors have in common? that’s right. none of them were straight. not a one. every single author on this list experienced same-gender romantic attraction during their lives. literary tradition is a hundred times more queer than what your high school english class would ever let you know
