when is it going to be the other way round
does this count?
Oh, I think that one counts.
Write her a letter, send her a flower, love only gets old if you let it.

The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.

I didn’t think that I would grow so much before I started to end up where I am, but here I am and there you are (and you are so far away).
I didn’t think I would be so tired.
Here is exhausting, and it’s not my fault. It’s no one’s fault.
It’s tiring not to know the streets I’m walking, and I’m terrified whenever someone confuses me with somebody who knows where they are and asks for directions.
I never thought I’d grow into a place and now I’m scared to be away from home. I didn’t ask to be damp around the edges, the worn dishcloth you throw into the back of the cupboard to dry.
I am warm and I am soft and I am going to fray to the core if I don’t inch my way back to the spot on the shelf where I belong.
Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.
Whenever I’m recommending a book to anyone:
“HERE, READ IT.”
I want to make something completely new. I want to work so hard that everything of me burns away, like the chemical in the match. Which leaves what really is me, or what I think is me. I just want to achieve my own vibe. And it’s nothing arty, nothing lofty, it’s just fucking different, and I want to leave this world behind a little so that maybe I’ll see that it’s bigger and I haven’t left it at all.
