You do this, you do.
You take the things you love and tear them apart
or you pin them down with your body and pretend they’re yours.
- Richard Siken, from A Primer For The Small Weird Loves (via violentwavesofemotion)
"I shall go on shining as a brilliantly meaningless figure in a meaningless world."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned (via larmoyante)
"It’s this feeling that you want to love strangers, that you want to kiss the man at the post office, or the woman at the dry cleaners—you want to wrap your arms around life, life itself, but you can’t, and this feeling wells up in you, and there is nowhere to put this great happiness—and you’re floating—and then you fall down and become unbearably sad. And you have to go lie down on the couch."

"I’ve never been able to trust
what I don’t see, so please
love me in the light. Night is
for passion and salted skin,
but love is made for morning."
- anne, when your love only comes out with the moon (via anneisrestless)
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.

"What am I supposed to do, take ecstasy every weekend; walk into the river, my pockets filled with stones? There are whole hopeful days at a time where it ebbs and I am saved. (Make it to the sky. Bite into an avocado. Wipe the dust from the floor.)"

"I learned that people can easily forget that others are human."
