"Loving me will not be easy. Some days I will be a stuttering apology and you won’t know how to handle all the things I’ve done wrong."
How do you stay friends with someone you love and watch them be with someone else? When all you want to do is be with them and make them happy, but now someone else is. And the hanging out will become less and less and the texts less and less.
"You are more than words
and the letters that make them,
you are poetry."
Ben Howard - Soldiers
oh you watch me steady, you
watch me with such a quiet sincerity
and you hold me heavy, you
hold me like I was born to be held
and the light comes in here, yeah
morning my dear, and the restlessness of arms
and we lie here longing now
words were ours that we’ll never be harmed
‘cause you are dear to me.
"Be very, very careful what you put into that head, because you’ll never, ever get it out."
"Nothing can wear you out like caring about people."
"But…as bad as it was, I learned something about myself. That I could go through something like that and survive."
"On June 21, 2013, at 3:17 AM, you told me I was beautiful. Just seven months and twelve days later, you told me that you never loved me at all. I don’t know which date is more significant."
"I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then."
"You smile that smile and my
skin becomes a mountain
range of goosebumps; I would
melt to have your fingers claim
each one. If I wasn’t held
together my bones would
always be building themselves
into thrones and alters and
shelters for you in hopes
you’d find me and stay."
