yo gettin married at 22 sounds a lot like leavin a party at 9:30 pm
yeah but you get to leave the party with your favorite person on the planet, and take off all of your makeup, and put on your ugly comfortable clothes and make popcorn and curl up in your bed and watch a movie, and have sex and go to sleep, idk how that sounds like a bad thing.
And everyone else just wakes up alone and hungover.
“You kept calling me and pretty
and although I liked the sound of it
I didn’t want to hear it come out of your mouth
I wanted you to tell me you like the way
I never shut up about the things I care about
Or how I dreamt of a future
that was big and bold and daring
I need you to say that you loved the way
I smiled trying to contain my laughter
at dumb jokes on dumb shows
That the way I refuse to sleep in the dark
isn’t dumb or childish but rather smart.
That when I draw, the world slips away from me
and I’m immersed in my painting
trying to make sure ever line comes out
just how I imagined.
I don’t want to just be pretty.
I want to be something more
Tell me I’m everything in the universe,
I want you to see me for who I am.”—To be something more to you: Carol Shlyakhova(strong-but-breakable)
I’m worried that one day
my family will add your name
to the list of things to never say around me
and sometimes, when you kiss me
with your records playing in the background
I wonder if I’ll hate that song next October.
Yesterday, I looked at you
and tried to calculate what the odds are
that we’ll rip each other’s hearts apart
and the best I could come up with
and even this feels optimistic.
I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m scared
but there’s no one I’d rather be scared with than you.
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”—Joseph Campbell (via theonlymagicleftisart)
“Do not feel sorry for me.
I mean, who really got the raw
end of the deal here?
I only lost you: a lying, frightened,
using and abusive poor
excuse for a human being.
And you lost me.”—Beau Taplin ||The raw end of the deal. (via afadthatlastsforever)
“When we had our first big fight, you asked me if I had watched that movie and if I knew that scene - you know the one - where the broken up couple who hadn’t seen each other in years finally reunites and the girl realizes her mistake, and all the lost love, and all the regret. Anyway, when you and I finally made up, you said that while we weren’t talking you kept picturing me in it. It was the first time I knew you were in love with me. Okay this is what I’m really getting at here: I know we haven’t spoken in some time now, and I know it’s for the best, but I’m just wondering if I still star in the movies in your head. You still star in mine. Last night I was Rachel and you were Ross. The night before it was Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. I can’t stop replaying the ways we could find each other again. Look, I know this is hard and I don’t want to make it harder but I just want to see you. We can make believe just for one night. Me, Allie and you, Noah. You, Gatsby and me, Daisy”—anne, the balcony scene (via anneisrestless)
“For our lives to be beautiful, we need to be stretched tight between death and life, almost like a guitar string. That’s where the beautiful notes happen, when we’re pulled.”—Jon Foreman (via yesdarlingido)
