not yet .

Perhaps some day I'll crawl back home,
But not as long as I can make stories
out of my heartbreak,
beauty out of my sorrow.

Sylvia Plath


  1. This is a gorgeous quote. It reminds me of another quote I saw once that said "Thank you for this pain, I need it for my art."

    I'm glad art can help people cope and love. In dark times, art and words can keep us going.

    Tightrope to the Sun

  2. this is one of my favorite plath's poems..I have it written on a post that's been on the desk of my studio for a couple of years now... I'm not only a Sylvia Plath junkie and addict.. but also, I find this particular quote inspiring... I had my heart broken...and started writing about it... I guess she gave me the idea "but not as long as I can make stories out of my heatrbreak"
