#let everything happen to you
amplifyme · 3 days ago
There’s a new fanfic up on the archive. Not tooting my own horn here, but I’m pretty fond of this one. It’s nice that I finished it on Duchovny’s birthday. He’ll never get the gift, but he continues to be the inspiration for my Mulder. Give it a shot if you feel the need.

God speaks to each of us as he makes us, Then walks with us silently out of the night These are the words we dimly hear. You, send out beyond your recall. Go the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame And make big shadows I can move in.
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Don’t let yourself lose me.
Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand.
[Go The Limits Of Your Longing//Rainer Maria Rilke]

Let Everything Happen to You
As a girl I made my calves into little drinking elephants, I would stare at the wonder of their pumping muscles, the sup of their leg-trunks. I resuscitated a bunny once from my cat’s electric teeth. I was on neighborhood watch to save animals, as many as I could. My damage was easy. My plainspoken voice is a watercolor. I’m afraid of it as I’m afraid of what the world will do to color. I don’t think I’ve done much. A table leans against itself to be a table. I hold nothing but this air. I give it off. I want a literature that is not made from literature, says Bhanu. Last night my legs ached a low-tone. I imagined the body giving itself up for another system. Dandelions tickling out of my knee. The meniscus a household of worms. It is okay to bear. My apartment hums in a Rilke sense. A pain blooms. I am told that it’s okay to forego details of what happened. I am told it doesn’t matter now. I want to write sentences for days. I want days to not be a sentence. We put men in boxes and sail them away. Justice gave me an amber necklace. I tried to swallow as many as I could.
