• "It was a mystery all insoluble; nor could I grapple with the shadowy fancies that crowded upon me as I pondered. I was forced to fall back upon the unsatisfactory conclusion, that while, beyond doubt, there are combinations of very simple natural objects which have the power of thus affecting us, still the analysis of this power lies among considerations beyond our depth." ☆ The Fall of the House of Usher, by Edgar Allan Poe, published in 1839 in Burton's Gentleman's Magazine • • • A B C D • • • ♡ • • • A B C D • • • #shortstory #inanimate #depth

Presenting the exact definition of my kinda Sunday morning at home.Indolence is the key mood here..along with perpetual longing for a mountain trip. Trying to make do with des cheerful socks, bought in Old Manali..many winters ago.N artificial grass carpets to keep my metropolitan valley green... #sundayvibes #wintersun #homesweethome #delhidiaries #instagramers #inanimate
I hope to be found, I feel so lost The sound of my drop, a death in the forest Wanting to bloom flowers, leaving a field of magical powers To heal all the lonely It would be so lovely For the shoved to be pushed, to never be hushed To give them hope, to use their pixie dust That they have collected, to soar on. I got this idea and it's really sad I know, but we all can feel a little lonely this time of year and I wanted to capture that sadness. I feel alone fairly often and it's okay I know I can always push through and so can everyone else. 🌼
Truly can’t decide whether this thing is my best friend, or worst enemy. . It’s also weird to have spent so much time chronically ill in this house that I now have ‘relationships’ with inanimate objects. . For example: Big blue reading chair= bestie, drawers that only seem to open when pushed by a non-fatigued person= enemy. . Aaaanyway, this chair’s reappearance over the last week has definitely dampened my spirits, but without it, I’d be an even greasier/smellier mess than I already am, so it’s hard to decide how I feel. . Hard because I need it, but so desperately don’t want it. . We don’t have a bath (yet), so a seated shower is the next best thing. I’ll be in here, with candles, 🌿, probably crying and listening to rainforest sounds until the painful sex post comes out later today✌🏻.
