Just because you kissed
someone with scars
doesn’t make you
I am afraid of getting older. I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient.
— Sylvia Plath written in 1949 at age 17. (via abstractedfromreality)
