"I need a strip of cloth, about a foot long. Anything will do. Never mind. — River, take one end of this, wrap it around your hand, and hold it out to me.”
The angles of your wrists
preserve a certain mystery,
unknown by any lips
or written down in history.
To measure their degree
would solve the oldest questions -
providence and alchemy
answered in your gestures.
But god and gold will never rival
the way your fingers curl.
They hold my breath’s arrival
like a rare and undiscovered pearl.
House of Leaves, Mark Z. Danielewski

"You can love more than one person." Of course you can. But marriage is something different. Marriage is memory, marriage is time. [x]

He’s falling apart and she’s the last person left who he loves. Amy and Rory are gone forever and you can see it on his face even before he asks her to stay with him that he knows his time with her is only temporary. He knows she doesn’t want to travel forever and she’ll go back to her life as professor.
Soon, she won’t walk out of the Tardis doors only to turn up again in the middle of some crazy adventure like she always does. She’ll leave for the Library and there will be nothing left for him but the hope of running into younger versions of her until time runs out and there are no adventures left.
After all these years of having a family, time is catching up with him. Soon, he will be alone again. Left behind to live on while everyone else he loves is gone.
