If I were a colour I’d be white. If I were a number I’d be 13. If I were an animal I’d be a wolf. If I were a song I’d be one that you’ve never heard, but which is somehow familiar. If I were an article of clothing I’d be a scarf. If I were a kiss I’d be true love’s first. If I were a shoe I’d be flats. If I were an art supply I’d be oil paints. If I were a weather condition I’d be a thunderstorm you didn’t see coming. If I were a Disney princess I’d be Anastasia. If I were a guitar I’d be out of tune. If I were a drink I’d be firewiskey. If I were a fruit I’d be a pineapple. If I were a season I’d be Fall. If I were a painting I would be ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci' by Sir Frank Dicksee. If I were a photograph I would be vibrant, but unfocused. If I were a flower I would be a poppy. If I were a phobia I would be Apeirophobia. If I were an instrument I’d be a piano. If I were a scent I’d be something burning. If I were an emotion I would be sehnsucht.
“There’s such a gulf between yourself and who you were then, but people speak to that other person and it answers; it’s like having a stranger as a house guest in your skin.”—Barbara Kingsolver (Animal Dreams) (via rememo) (via melancholynotes)
