If i were young as once i was, and dreams and death more distant then
I wouldn't split my soul in two, and keep half in the world of men
So half of me would stay at home and strive for Faerie in vain
While all the while my soul would stroll up narrow path, down crooked lane
And there would meet a fairy lass and smile and bow with kisses three
She'd pluck wild eagles from the air and nail me to a lightning tree
And if my heart would run from her or flee from her, be gone from her
Until one day she'd tire of it, all bored with it and done with it
She'd leave it by a burning brook, and off brown boys would run with it
They'd take it and have fun with it and stretch it long and cruel and thin
Theyd slice it into four and then they'd string with it a violin
And everyday and every night they'd play upon my heart a song
So plaintive and so wild and strange that all who heard it danced along
And sang and whirled and sank and trod and skipped and slipped and reeled and rolled
Until with eyes as bright as coals, they'd crumble into wheels of gold...
But i am young no longer now, for sixty years my hearts been gone
To play its dreadful music there, beyond the valley of the sun
I watch with envious eyes and mind, the single-souled, who dare not feel
The wind that blows beyond the moon, who do not hear the Fairy Reel
If you don't hear the Fairy Reel, they will not pause to steal your breath
When i was young i was a fool
So wrap me up in dreams and death💜💜💜 #neilgaiman#fragilethings

I have said things in this retelling of events that are not to be said. If i were a sensible man i would burn all these pages, but then, as my friend taught me, even ashes can give up their secrets. Instead, i shall place these papers in a strongbox at my bank with instructions that the box may not be opened until long after anyone now living is dead. #fragilethings#neilgaiman

I dreamed of shadows that night, vast shadows that blotted out the sun, and i called out to them in my desperation, but they did not listen.
Assisti Thor, e virou meu herói favorito. 🙌 Aí lembrei que a @that_masochist_girl "♡" tinha um livro de mitologia nórdica, e eu pedi pra ela me emprestar para ler. Vou tentar ler ao máximo hoje, para ser o primeiro livro do ano ^^.
ps: nessa hora minha garrafa deslizou da mochila e quebrou no chão, jorrando a água toda.😢
Sou um assassino de garrafas.🔪
Done. An easy read but not an easy ponder. Neil Gaiman + Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba is a PERFECT COLLAB . Gaiman making magic feel real. Moon/Ba making real feel magical. Reads like this, i count as art… when it makes you think and feel things. You don’t even know if you’re take away is right or wrong or if there are actual metrics for it. and with visuals like that… They really did each other justice. Thoughts? Reactions? Because im hella confused and enlightened at the same time 😂
Hyukoh as BGM because his is a voice of art and emotions and all good things. Thank you for letting me borrow this @skinnyner 😆 dapat may library card na kame sayo eh HAHAHA #bookstagram#neilgaiman#fabiomoon#gabrielba
It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.

LEITURA ATUAL ✨
Com o retorno das minhas aulas estou com uma rotina bem apertada, mas não quero deixar isso atrapalhar no meu prazer pela leitura 😌 ... Em cada momento livre estou tentando encaixar um tempinho para ler.
Essa semana estou lendo "O oceano no fim do caminho" do Nell Gaiman, atualmente não tinha lido nenhum livro completo dele apenas contos e trechos. Ainda não tenho uma opinião clara formada, mas até agora a leitura estar fluindo 🤗✨
