Do not fall in love with a poet. They will turn you into metaphors and rewrite you so many times, you won’t know who you are anymore. Also, they lie too beautifully.
"You lost someone who
Loved you with honesty
But I didn’t lose much;
Your love was never pure”
Now they’re all I am, I have no other identity
You were my world
I don’t know what else
You want me to say
I’m alone now
I’m not the lucky friend anymore
I don’t have your arms around me anymore
All these illusions are shattered
By the truth
Promises are left hallow with words
That were never spoken in time
So now it’s just me
Just me with the pictures and
Our jokes and this empty bed
And your stupid ass T-shirts
And they’re all mine to keep
But you’re not
And you never were
I still get sad when I’m all alone. Maybe it will take more than January to July to get you out of my veins
If you kiss my neck… You’re not leaving this room unfucked.
you’re so cute I just wanna hug you and kiss you and cuddle with you and also fuck you but hey man it’s whatever
I just want to go to bed but preferably with you
*txts back 20 days later & picks up the conversation where we left off as if no time has passed and without an excuse*
"Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit. Don’t spend your energy on them."
"Be with someone who talks about you like you put stars in the sky."
"Kiss me with your eyes."
single and ready for someone to fall in love with me already like damn
Hello, 911? *twirls phone cord around finger* sooooo how was your day? Did you arrest any bad guys?…No you hang up first! Hello? 911?
take me to an art museum and stroke my hair and tell me im the prettiest thing in the room
date idea: take me to ikea and play hide and seek with me
today I burned my tongue on a piece of pizza and I think that it’s a very strong metaphor that sometimes the things you love most in life will hurt you.
see that girl you just called a bitch? she didn’t hear you say it louder
Your body is 65% water and I’m thirsty
*falls asleep in class*
teacher: WAKE UP!
me: miss, a bit of respect please i was praying
"But I don’t even want a boyfriend with rock hard abs and perfect hair, those are just “extra” things that I wouldn’t mind looking at. What I really want is a boyfriend who is passionate about something, anything, so much that he smiles and lights up when he talks about it. Who isn’t afraid to hold my hand in public and introduce me to everyone as “my girlfriend”, who stares at me when I’m not paying attention and smiles because he’s happy that he’s with someone like me. Most of all I want someone who doesn’t see me the way I see myself. I want someone that loves me more than I love myself."
just a friendly reminder that right now there are millions of people kissing or having sex and you’re on the computer by yourself in your room
"I refuse to chase anyone anymore."
"I can’t think of many things more attractive than a beautiful person who’s beauty isn’t what actually attracts you."
"Since we first met I have loved you with whatever I had to love you with."
"She was the love of my life. She was what I paid attention to…who I paid attention to. Everything else was just background."
"No, we weren’t lovers, but in a way we had opened ourselves to each other even more deeply than lovers do. The thought caused me a good deal of grief. What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for - and to do it so unconsciously."
"And I realized, that the reason why good things were not happening to me as often as wanted them to, was because I in fact was a good thing that needed to happen. I needed to happen to me, to other people and to the world. And so I happened."
"I am more sensitive than other people. Things that other people would not notice awaken a distinct echo in me, and in such moments of lucidity, when I look at myself, I see that I am alone, all alone, all alone."
"It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them."
"I loved you fiercely,
while you didn’t have a clue.
And it ruined me."
"You are good. But it is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must be spread to others… In this world so filled with problems, so constantly threatened by dark and evil challenges, you can and must rise above mediocrity, above indifference. You can become involved and speak with a strong voice for that which is right."
"I always wondered who these poems were about, but then I met you."
"I am exhausted of wanting and never having. Loving and always hurting."
"I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things."
"I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you."
I struggle with wanting you all the time, so please don’t mistake my silence for indifference. It’s just I have to hold myself back because I feel too much. Too often. Too wildly out of my control."
"I looked and looked at her, and I knew, as clearly as I know that I will die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth. She could fade and wither - I didn’t care. I would still go mad with tenderness at the mere sight of her face."
In the absence of the moon, your eyes were the light.
Mid sentence she smiled, and I forgot what I was going to say.
"When our hands finally met, everything that needed to be said, was said."
"Sometimes you look at me and you ask me what I’m thinking. I smile, and I say “Nothing.” Truly, though, it is something. It’s the most beautiful something I’ve ever known."
She is not “my girl.”
She belongs to herself. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.
How much more blessed can I be?
"You tempted me with that smile.
You seduced me with those eyes."
"Being both soft and strong is a combination very few have mastered."
"What you give away willingly, can never be taken away from you."
"My poor mother
begged for a sheep
but raised a wolf."
Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the ivy twines,
Tell me what makes skies so blue,
And I’ll tell you why I love you.
Nuclear fusion makes stars to shine,
Tropisms make the ivy twine,
Raleigh scattering make skies so blue,
Testicular hormones are why I love you.
people do not leave just memories, they also leave scars
I’ve given up on my emotions long time ago, all I do now is work on my mind. I want to be intelligence, I want to be so smart that there’s no more room for anything else. If I feel empty, I don’t search for something to fill myself with in humans, I read. If I get scared, I don’t look for a hand, I talk to God. I am aware of my emotions, I respect them, but I’ve grown to ignore them, I choose not to be drowned in tears, I choose not to end up knocking on someones door who may and may not let me in. I know that love is a good thing, but love ends, people leave, but not intelligence, not great mind saturated with knowledge. I will be happy with it, and I’ll be proud.
She’s always high. In heels, spirit, pills, booze."
"1. Kiss that cute boy at the party, but push him away as soon as he puts his hand up your skirt
2. Smoke a cigarette for the first time, and make it your last
3. Don’t straighten your hair for a week, see how many compliments you get
4. Blast your favourite song even when your mum has told you off for playing it too loudly. Enjoy those 3 minutes of pure happiness before she pulls the plug out.
5. Say yes to going out, you’ll have something to tell your grandchildren about
6. Paint a sun on a rainy day, then stick it to the window
7. Eat the cupcake, you have better things to worry about than those 300 calories
8. Do yoga and meditate as often as possible
9. Stand up for yourself. Someone called you a slut? Someone said you are ugly? Someone said your art work was boring and dull? That is your cue to fucking stand up for yourself and make them speechless
10. Don’t respond to a group of males whistling at you. You’re a human being, not a fucking dog
11. Leave your headphones at home, see how much you are missing out on because you’re always lost in your own thoughts
12. Carry hand sanitizer and bandaids in your purse
13. Wear sexy underwear, loads of leather, a fur coat, heels and purple lipstick. Do it for yourself, not for the hot guy next door.
14. If you’re having a bad day, cry, scream, punch a pillow, throw stuff around. Then you pick up the mess, including yourself and get back up.
15. Smile, be polite and get on peoples good sides for starters
16. Stop waiting for your crush, stop dressing up for the bar man that serves you a free drink or staying extra hours at work for your boss. Stop impressing these dickheads and start impressing yourself.
17. Laugh until you cry, and when the girl sitting next to you in class tells you to shut up, laugh even louder.
18. Do whatever feels right in the moment, laugh, cringe and regret it later. Repeat."
People said “You must be mad, or on drugs,” which I found a bit disappointing. What about imagination? It reflects our time that people sooner assume you’re on drugs or mad, rather than free."
There’s a place in most of us where the rain is pretty much constant, the shadows are always long, and the woods are full of monsters."
You do not need to sit
in a church, mosque,
nor temple to talk to God.
Similarly, I do not need to
be in your presence to make
conversation with you.
There is the ultimate
satisfaction of knowing
I have prayed for you as
sincerely and as often as
possible, praying you find
safety, love, and the
essence of life itself.
I hope you learn of
my prayers only by
"I hate people generally, but I like people individually."
"We live in a time when men have more muscles than maturity."
"Night is a room
darkened for lovers."
"It’s the maybes that will kill you."
"You hold me without touch. You keep me without chains."
"You look like a winter night. I could sleep inside the cold of you."
"It disturbs me to learn I have hurt someone unintentionally. I want all my hurts to be intentional."
"Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do."
I’m exhaused of trying with everyone & everything
"To me, home was never a place; it was a feeling. It was the way the people I loved said my name."
The words I didn’t say, are the words I really mean.
I worry about you because I love you; and because I know you don’t worry about yourself.
Before you give your heart to anyone; put a limit on how much shit you will tolerate before you take it back.
A great future doesn’t require a great past.
Looking back, I didn’t lose my way. I never knew where I was going in the first place.
Don’t try to make somebody love you that doesn’t, reach for the hand that is reaching for you.
I was so tired of people asking me what was wrong with me, I learned how to cry with a smile on my face.
I wish that you could see, what I wish that I could say.
One single night with you, is worth the rest of my days without you.
I live for the day that I meet somebody I’ve never met, and feel like I already know them.
Too many days are wasted on worrying about yesterday, and waiting for tomorrow.
Never rock the boat, if you don’t know how to swim.
I wish I had met you
when I was younger
when I still chased rainbows
and every day I looked
forward to something new
where my heart hadn’t
been tainted by heartbreak
and trust was something
you gave openly
I wish I had met you then
maybe we could have made it
I often wonder
will we meet again
to be as we should have
everyone makes mistakes
my lips yearn for you every day
I’ll look for you if I’m first
but please wait for me
if I’m not…
I never cared about what I lost, until I lost what I cared about.
You never find a love that is meant to be when you’re seeking it; a love that is meant to be always finds you.
For what it’s worth, it wasn’t worth it.
If you take my hand, you won’t have to take my heart; I’ll give it to you.
I want to be that familiar face, that familiar voice, the place you always run where you know that you’ll be safe.
Your story is still waiting to be written.
You are the answer to the question I have been asking my whole life.
You’ll never know if the risk was worth the reward, until you explore a path that takes you off the boring road you’re on.
The impossible becomes possible, if you’re not afraid to fail.
It wasn’t the gift that made her smile, it was the proof you were thinking of her.
“As I was writing the letter to tell you good-bye; I wanted you to know how sad I was that we were going our separate ways. By the time I had finished, the tears on my letter had smeared all the words I had written. As I was about to throw the letter away and start another, I realized that there was nothing I could write that would explain how I felt any better, than the tears on my letter had said.”
I was dying to be seduced by you, knowing it would kill me.
Even as I reflect on what could have been, I still dream of what may be.
Make today a day you will always remember, and the day someone else will never forget.
Don’t kiss me
if you’re afraid of fire
I am a flame
hot enough to
on those lips.
Tomorrow could be the someday you’ve been waiting for.
If you shut everyone out of your life, even your screams become silent.
It took me losing everything, to finally find myself.
If I could be anything I wanted; I would be the one that you love.
Pretending to be somebody’s friend, is worse than being their enemy.
How in love is love enough, for love to last forever?
Most people don’t cry because they’re wrong; most people cry because they’re right.
I had never found a place where I felt like I belonged, until you took me in your arms.
You never realize how much someone means to you, until you mean nothing to them.
For so long I watched you from a distance. I could never find the courage to tell you how I felt inside. My heart raced each time we would say “hi" in passing. You will always be the greatest love I never knew.
If the reason is worth the risk, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and go for it.
I’ve had friends that couldn’t be my lover. I’ve had lovers who couldn’t be my friend. I can’t wait for the day I find the person that is both.
I AM ADDICTED TO YOU. LEAVE ME NOW, AND I’LL CRAVE YOU MORE. ❞
OF COURSE I CAN FORGIVE YOU, BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL NEVER FORGET IT.
❝ IT’S SCARY HOW FRIENDS CAN BECOME NOT SO ‘FRIENDLY’
IF I’M NOT CRAZY ABOUT YOU FROM THE START, THEN I’M NEVER GOING TO BE CRAZY ABOUT YOU IN THE END.
I SWEAR YOU’LL NEVER FIND SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU LIKE I DO. ❞
To think that I ever thought
that I couldn’t survive without
you was the most foolish
thing that my mind could have
This is when you break
When you tell her
that you don’t have
to stay committed.
This is when she leaves
and you go back
in your head
and try to figure out
where it all went wrong,
where you started to
give up on love
and give in to solitude.
This is when she
finds someone who
is worth it.
This is when you
realize that you’ve made
and try to win her back.
This is when you
This is when you
the only problem with love
If this is love
then I don’t want
anything to do with it.
I’m tired of waking up
at 3 a.m. to a text message
from you wondering if
you made the right choice
by choosing me.
It shouldn’t be this hard,
and I know that just as well
as you do. But this is difficult,
and I’m drained from waiting
around for your head
and your heart to make
an agreement. It shouldn’t be
this hard, and you should
know that better than anyone.
If you’re wondering why
my compassion for you
turned into cruelty,
then you should know
that is a sign that I have
finally moved on and let go
of the feeling of love
that I always thought
was meant for you.
I either dress like im going to a red carpet event or like im a homeless drug addict there is no in between
I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.
I wish my friends would take random pictures of me when we hang out because I’m an arrogant prick and I want more pictures of myself that aren’t selfies.
“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.”
“I see too many things at once. I notice shadows. Think about them. And while I do that, I miss other things. Important things. I can’t stop looking, even when I have to stop. I get lost in ifs. They are always there and I should only be able to tune in to them if I’m on the right frequency. But that’s the thing about me: The frequencies don’t divide.”
“I just hope that one day—preferably when we’re both blind drunk—we can talk about it.”
From 18 to 22 you meet a lot of temporary people.
In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. Don Draper, “The Wheel”
I love first times. I want my entire life to be composed of them. Life is only interesting if life is wide.
There’s a difference between wanting to appear confident and actually feeling confident.
