Rainer Maria Rilke


 ❝ extinguish my eyes, i’ll go on seeing you;

seal my ears, i’ll go on hearing you;
and without feet, i can make my way to you,
without a mouth, i can swear your name;
break off my arms, i’ll take hold of you,
with my heart as with a hand;
stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat;
and if you consume my brain with fire,
i’ll feel you burn in every drop of my blood ❞
