"He never broke my heart. He only turned it into a compass that always points me back to him."
— Clementine von Radics, In Defense of Loving Him (via larmoyante)
"so I wait for you like a lonely house
till you will see me again and live in me.
Till then my windows ache."
— Pablo Neruda (100 Love Sonnets)
"Grow up with me.
Let’s run in fields and fear the dark together.
Fall off swings, and burn special things,
and both play outside in bad weather.
Let’s eat badly.
Let’s watch adults drink wine and laugh at their idiocy.
Let’s sit in the back of the car,
making eye contact with strangers driving past,
making them uncomfortable.
Let’s both reclaim our superpowers;
the ones we all have and lose with our milk teeth.
The ability not to fear social awkwardness.
To panic when locked in the cellar;
still sure there’s something down there.
And while picking from pillows each feather,
let’s both stay away from the edge of the bed,
forcing us closer together.
Let’s sit in public, with ice cream all over both our faces;
sticking our tongues out at passers by.
Let’s not find it funny lest someone falls over.
Classical music is boring.
Poetry baffles us both;
there’s nothing that’s said is what’s meant.
Plays are long, tiresome, sullen, and filled;
with hours that could be spent rolling down hills,
and grazing our knees on cement.
Let’s hear stories and both lose our innocence.
Learn about parents and forgiveness,
death and morality,
kindness and art,
thus losing both of our innocent hearts,
but at least we won’t do it apart.
Grow up with me.”
"Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future."
— Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (via kushandwizdom)
"I still believe in love, I just no longer believe in loving you."
— Things I Never Got To Tell You, Part 24 (via venula)
"What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back."
— Chester Bennington (via inflvx)
"I am still drinking about you"
— six word story (via deepseasadness)
"Just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you.
Read it over.
Let those words resonate in your mind."
