make me choose:

mythaelogy said: 'beauty is terror. […]' or ‘[…] from vulgar to divine.’

She was a living reverie for me: the mere sight of her sparked an almost infinite range of fantasy, from Greek to Gothic, from vulgar to divine.

I’ve actually gotten to live this. 5 years and 2 kids later and it just gets better. Some women come on like a drug, and leave the same way. The one that sets a fire that burns brighter as time goes on is a rare, and therefore precious, thing. Treat it as such.

That is not to say you should put her on a pedestal. She is a human capable of all the mistakes of one. She is not divine. She is simply a lens to show you the divine within yourself and the universe. She is not your possession, she is your church.
