love is the only rational act

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.

Cautiously, I allowed
myself to feel good
at times.
I found moments of
peace in cheap
rooms
just staring at the
knobs of some
dresser
or listening to the
rain in the
dark.
The less I needed,
the better I
felt.

—Charles Bukowski, “Let It Enfold You”  (via perfect)
