in the end, we were all just humans
drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokeness.

my friend’s teacher kept saying ‘YOLO’ around the school and then people were like ‘why do u keep saying you only live once’ and he was like ‘oh is that what it means?? i thought it was a mix of ‘yo’ and hello’ and it was just a hip new greeting’




Never forget
I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary.’ It’s dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain. Catherine Breillat  (via a-quiet-old-soul)
I need to be alone for certain periods of time or I violate my own rhythm. Lee Krasner (via a-quiet-old-soul)
What if instead of walking away,
I walked towards her and told her
not to go. Held onto her arms
and told her that if she leaves now
I will forever be scarred
by the feeling of future absence.
What if instead of staying silent,
I spoke up and told her
that she will always be the only
one that I will ever really love
with every tired bone in my body.
What if instead of pushing
the thought of her return away
I embrace the moments
in which my hope is at its
strongest. What if instead of
telling her that I don’t miss her,
I tell her that I wish she
would have never gone away.
That she would have never
tore herself from my body,
becoming another piece of me
that’s lost in the chaos of it all.
What if instead of telling her
that I never once for a moment
thought she was the one
that I would wake up feeling
empty without, I tell her that she
is the one that I wake up to
every morning feeling empty without. "What if instead," - Colleen Brown (via mostlyfiction)

I don’t want sex, I want the things that lead up to it. The slow kissing then the passionate kissing, then the pulling closer, the neck kisses, the grabbing, biting, heavy breathing, grinding, the pauses while you catch your breath, feeling each other. Oh my.

Then sex.

I’ve always envied people who sleep easily. Their brains must be cleaner, the floorboards of the skull well swept, all the little monsters closed up in a steamer trunk at the foot of the bed. David Benioff, City of Thieves. (via collectinqwords)

How to feel better about yourself:

1. Sleep without underwear every once and a while, it’s good for you. Maybe even try sleeping naked.

2. Take long baths with tea, ice cream, or whatever you please. Throw in bubbles if that’s your style.

3. Look at yourself like you look at your best friend. Find the freckles you love, what your eyes look best with, what hairstyle compliments your smile.

4. When you look at your naked body in the mirror, only think good things. Say compliments to yourself aloud. Watch yourself smile, and encourage yourself.

5. Take yourself out on a date. Treat yourself to the things you love. You’re alone yes, but there is nothing wrong with that. Remember all the times you were smothered by people and talking crowds, and you only wanted to be alone with yourself.

6. Write yourself a love note. Tell yourself your favorite things about you, and tell yourself all the things you want to become. Tell yourself you’ll love you forever.

7. Take pictures of yourself. Selfies are magnificent! Take 500! Take them everywhere! Find the good lighting! Pick your favorite one and realize what a wonderful work of art you are.

8. Acknowledge your accomplishments, all of them. Got out of bed? It’s hard sometimes and it’s been hard before, so honestly great job. Drink lots of water, and at the end of the day congratulate yourself for staying hydrated. Let yourself know when you are proud, and soak up the feeling of “well done”.
