"it feels so secure because i’m going to leave" 

your name is A. 

and i’ve just made some beautiful memories. 

I don’t know if there’s anything left to say

because i’ve said it all to you

my heart. 

i’m a hopeless romantic. 

and a cynical realist. 

"does that make sense to you?"

thank you for the memories

thank you for the kisses

thank you for the adventure

thank you for becoming a part of me

thank you.

everything happens for a reason right? 

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.

Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones (via c-oquetry)


Is heartbreaks
Is insecurity
Is self destructiveness
Is loneliness
Is melancholy

Is within me
Because I’m still alive and I’m still willing to make it right.

People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.

Give up give up give up give up.
Just give up. I beg you to give up.
And walk away.
Stop it.
Just stop.


I’m struggling between being strong and giving up. What’s with being in this state again? I’m starting to feel like this is becoming rather poisonous.

You used to say
I’m proud to call you my love.

What happened?


I think I finally find a little bit of peace today, waking up to my heart beating its anxious beats. I cried a lot these days and I’ve been scared.
Maybe you’re right, we never had a proper start and it’s hard to build something good on something so broken. I want to rebuild this anew and this time make it right. So it isn’t exactly waiting, it’s us fixing our broken pieces so they could fit better the next time we meet again. Life is ridiculous sometimes and it may tear us apart for good this time round. But I won’t let the fear of the unknown stop me from believing in us.

Until next time, I do hope with my whole heart that we make it.

I love you.


You don’t fall in love like this
All the time
Maybe just once
I might die tomorrow or years from now
I just want to not regret loving someone with all of me
I love you
And I’ll wait


I said it was like stabbing an open wound again and again.
Ernie told me but you can choose to *dodge* move on right.
I’m waiting,
But maybe not for you to come back.
There should be a limit to the hurt.
And maybe I’m waiting to be ready to go.


You break my heart again and again.
And I use the remaining pieces to love you all over again.


Someone is making love
Someone is getting married
Someone is going into labor
Someone died.
I could never fathom death.
You never know when it’ll come and rid you off of the only privilege you were born with, the privilege to be alive.

To be alive.
