A writer’s diet consists of strong coffee, good wine, and memories that have long since past
*whispers into my coffee cup* help me
It was one of the October days when to breathe the air is like drinking wine, and every touch of the wind against one’s face is a caress.
*daydreams about chicken nuggets*
This is a time for soft blankets, crackling fires, and spicy drinks that warm the soul
I love you. I don’t always understand you, but I love you.
why do potatoes have more chromosomes than us, what do they need them for?
I’m a firm believer that happiness makes people prettier. It’s a noticeable glow
I talked to the stars about you almost every night. So if one night you’ll see numerous shooting stars lighting up the night sky, it’s because as I talked to them about you, they started to fall for you too
Concept: old books shops and french cafés, rainy days. Journaling on autumn nights under fairy lights. The world is at peace while we sleep
Cool idea: don’t cheat on people
Cool idea: don’t delete texts
Cool idea: don’t do shit you have to hide
Cool idea: don’t say I love you if you’re doing shady shit
Cool idea: don’t lead people on
Cool idea: don’t break people
How wild is it that every version of you probably exists still, somewhere, in someone’s memory? The messy you, crying on the floor exists still in your mind. The happy, sun-soaked you, exists in your best friend’s memory. No part of you has died, all parts of us exist always, simultaneously and hidden
… And then it’ll hit you. It’ll hit you when you’re shopping for paper towels and it’ll hit you when you’re loading your car with groceries. You’ll sit in your car and you’ll think about who you were last week and the week before that and so on until you finally get to who you were ten years ago, and you’ll run your fingers through your hair. It’ll hit you. It’ll hit you when you’re pulling into your driveway and it’ll hit you when you put the can of beans into the pantry. You’ll look around your kitchen and glance out the mini window above the sink to see the grass outside. It’ll hit you. It’ll hit you that this is your life and you aren’t the person you were. You aren’t screaming into your pillow at 1am hoping it’ll help the pain. You aren’t staring in the mirror picking out every flaw. You aren’t holding your stomach as you cry, trying to muffle the sobs. Instead, you’re shopping for new curtains and trying to figure out what pillows go best with your couch, because this is your life now, and it’ll hit you. You made it.
I need more of you, less of everyone else.
Texting me is like ordering something online because most likely you won’t hear back for 4-5 business days.
Respect people who find time in their schedule to see you. Love people who never look at their schedule when you need them
A good goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot
Not being a priority is a pretty good reason to end things
You haven’t healed, I can tell from how cruel you are.
Know that you can start late, look different, be uncertain, and still succeed
She moved on and I feel sorry for you, because she overlooked your flaws, your temper, your selfishness, your inability to love anyone but yourself. She could have anyone in the world, but she still chose you every time. All you are now is a crease in her past, a scar on her chest, a memory that fades faster than a photograph of you in a sealed box, hidden. Maybe now she will fight for someone who loves her, instead of someone who sucks the life out of her, never satisfied, even with her beating heart in his greedy hands.
If you don’t want me now, don’t miss me later.
i am ready for warm air, bright night skies, late-night swims, movies in the park, iced coffee, trips to the farmers market, fresh flowers in the yard, naps in the hammock, and you.
I can’t wait to move in with someone and cook for them and own dogs and watch movies and have a live-in-best-friend who I get to bang
Hold her hand in public.
Because if you let go, she’ll start shopping.
Note to self: don’t measure your progress using someone else’s ruler.
*starts wearing less and going out more*
YOU HAVE SEEN YOUR OWN STRENGTH.WHY DO YOU WORRY?
YOU HAVE SEEN YOUR OWN BEAUTY.
YOU HAVE SEEN YOUR GOLDEN HEART.
YOU HAVE SEEN YOUR OWN BEAUTY.
YOU HAVE SEEN YOUR GOLDEN HEART.
Everyone: What do u do
Me: *opens my dramatic 2am cellphone notes* I’m a writer actually
"IT WAS A STRANGE WINTER AND NOTHING AND EVERYTHING HAPPENED."
Me at gucci: do u have a student discount lol?
I just want to be by the water, living in my swim suit, eating too much fruit, and getting too much sun
I just wanna be friends, but I love you.
SHE IS SPECIAL, AND YOU WILL KNOW THIS SOON. SHE IS WOMAN, GIRL, FREE BIRD, LOVER, ESCAPEE. SHE WAS HER OWN BEFORE SHE EVER CHOSE TO BE YOURS."
"THAT WASN’T SEX, THAT WAS NAKED POETRY."
"SHE WEARS A LOT OF BLACK, BUT HER PRESENCE CAN GIVE YOUR LIFE COLOR."
"I’M NOT LOST, BECAUSE I HAVEN’T ANY IDEA WHERE TO GO THAT I MIGHT GET LOST ON THE WAY TO. I’D LIKE TO GET LOST, BECAUSE THEN I’D KNOW WHERE I WAS GOING, YOU SEE."
YOU DON’T SHOW HER THE STARS, YOU TAKE HER THERE."
never trust a man if his name starts with abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you.
i am not a hotel room i am home
i am not the whiskey you want
i am the water you need
don’t come here with expectations
and try to make a vacation out of me.
by Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey
You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.
Some people hide their sadness very well.
Do not settle for less than exactly what you want. Your heart’s desires are there for a reason. Chase them. Pursue them relentlessly. Do not lose sight of your goals.
Which do you want: the pain of staying where you are, or the pain of growth?
CLOSE DOORS. DON’T HOLD ONTO THINGS THAT NO LONGER BRINGS YOU HAPPINESS AND DO NOT HELP YOU GROW AS A PERSON. IT IS OKAY TO WALK AWAY FROM TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS. YOU ARE NOT WEAK FOR LETTING GO.
FORGIVE YOURSELF. WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING IN OUR PASTS THAT WE ARE ASHAMED OF, BUT THEY ONLY WEIGH US DOWN IF WE ALLOW THEM TO. MAKE AMENDS WITH THE OLD YOU AND WORK EVERY DAY TO BECOME THE PERSON THAT YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.
I BROKE MY OWN HEART LOVING YOU
I CAN NEVER UNLOVE YOU. I’LL JUST LOVE YOU IN A DIFFERENT WAY NOW.
ALWAYS IN THE MOOD FOR YOU.
I’M HOMESICK FOR ARMS THAT DON’T WANT TO HOLD ME.
why did you kiss me?
you can’t keep telling me you don’t want to lose me while making no effort to try and keep me
like shit I just want to have an intellectual, meaningful conversation and mad sex on the reg
my biggest fear is I’m married & my husband says, “let’s cut sugar out of our diet” so I have to leave with the kids in the middle of the night
la douleur exquise
(n.) the heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can’t have
“how much coffee do you drink?”
“oh, not much,” i say, taking a sip of coffee. my hands are shaking. i haven’t slept in 3 days. i can hear colors

JUST TELL ME WHO YOU ARE.
THE DAY YOU DECIDE TO LOVE YOURSELF IS THE DAY YOU’LL CONQUER THE WORLD.
I DON’T FEAR COMMITMENT. I FEAR WASTING MY TIME.
MAYBE WE FEEL EMPTY BECAUSE WE LEAVE PIECES OF OURSELVES IN EVERYTHING WE USED TO LOVE.
I HAVE SO MUCH OF YOU IN MY HEART.
I WANT TO BE AROUND PEOPLE THAT DO THINGS. I DON’T WANT TO BE AROUND PEOPLE ANYMORE THAT JUDGE OR TALK ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE DO. I WANT TO BE AROUND PEOPLE THAT DREAM AND SUPPORT AND DO THINGS.
DON’T WASTE YOUR LOVE ON SOMEBODY, WHO DOESN’T VALUE IT.
I TRIED SO HARD. YOU KNOW THAT, RIGHT? I TRIED HARDER THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE. NOW, HERE I AM, TRYING MY BEST JUST TO FORGET EVERYTHING. EVERY PIECE OF YOU. THE WAY YOU SMELL, THE FEEL OF YOUR SKIN. I CAN STILL FEEL YOU, I THINK I ALWAYS WILL.
NO FUCK YOU. YOU BROKE MY HEART.
TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T LOVE YOU BACK, IS THE CRUELEST, MOST UNFORGIVING HEARTACHE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.
I SAW YOU IN COLOUR WHILE YOU SAW ME IN BLACK AND WHITE
I STOPPED LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT. DECIDED TO BECOME IT INSTEAD.
WHY SHOULD I BE SAD? I HAVE LOST SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T LOVE ME. BUT THEY LOST SOMEONE WHO LOVED THEM.
BEFORE I MET HIM, I WOULD DANCE IN THE SHOWER. WHEN HE WAS IN MY LIFE, I WOULD THINK ABOUT SHOWERING WITH HIM. AFTER HE LEFT, I WOULD SIT ON THE GROUND IN THE SHOWER AND CRY. WHEN I GOT OVER HIM, I SHOWERED SO QUICKLY THERE WAS NO TIME FOR DANCING, FANTASIES OR TEARS. SOMEONE CAN INVADE THE SMALLEST PARTS OF YOUR LIFE, YOU WON’T EVEN REALIZE IT UNTIL YOU DANCE IN THE SHOWER AGAIN AND WONDER WHY YOU EVER STOPPED.
there’s this thing u should try it’s called stop ignoring me
Teach me how to gracefully let go of things not meant for me.
IT’S EASY TO SAY YOU’RE OVER SOMEONE IF YOU AREN’T SEEING THEM. THE CHALLENGE IS TO LOOK THEM IN THE EYE AND SEE THEIR SMILE AND HEAR THEIR VOICE AND STILL BE ABLE TO SAY “THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANT ANYMORE”.
"HOW CAN I FEEL SO HEART BROKEN
FOR SOMEONE I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW I LOVED
I’M SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE THAT BREAKS HEARTS
I NEVER WANTED TO LET THESE FEELINGS OUT
BUT YOU’RE THE BEST I’VE EVER HAD
FUCK THESE DRAKE FEELINGS
I THOUGHT I WAS IMMUNE TO EMOTIONS
BUT I WOULD BE WILLING TO BEG TO NOT GIVE US UP
LIKE I SAID YOU’RE THE BEST I’VE EVER HAD"
"SEDUCTION IS ABOUT INTELLIGENCE AND WIT. SOMEONE WHO MAKES ME LAUGH HAS EVERY CHANCE TO SEDUCE ME.
nd I’m scared I’ll never let myself stop remembering everything I need to forget.
his next trick is a little something i like to call “bulking out my bibliography with articles I barely looked at” “Works Sighted”
I have a karmic theory that if you’re doing what you love, success will naturally come to you. When you take important (often times frightening) steps in your life to fulfill your dreams, I believe that the universe will reward you for your bravery.
