"It’s amazing how a little tomorrow can make up for a whole lot of yesterday."
— John Guare, Landscape of the Body (via feellng)
"Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies."
— Mother Teresa (via feellng)
"She looked at his golden-brown eyes and all of the promises that lay within them, and linked her arm with his as she smiled, “Tell me tomorrow.”"
— Sarah J Maas, from Throne of Glass (via the-final-sentence)
"I wanted to feel something and nothing all at once."
"My love, it’s true what you say: you’re an absence rather than a presence for me, and that’s painful. I’m living in a provisional state, everything around me and in me is provisional. I wait — quite patiently — but do nothing except wait. I wait for you, and will perhaps wait for years like this. You’re everything for me, my love"
me in the nights
sleeping with the moon
i am laid next to the flute in your chest.
even still, i find myself restless
aching to have you trace constellations
upon my back.
longing to feel your breathing quicken
you come alive
your heart’s own rhythm.
i wish you could stay awake forever
because you make me feel less alone
"I am not a graceful person. I am not a Sunday morning or a Friday sunset. I am a Tuesday 2 a.m., I am gunshots muffled by a few city blocks, I am a broken window during February. My bones crack on a nightly basis. I fall from elegance with a dull thud, and I apologize for my awkward sadness. I sometimes believe that I don’t belong around people, that I belong to all the leap days that didn’t happen. The way light and darkness mix under my skin has become a storm. You don’t see the lightning, but you hear the echoes."
— (via wordsthat-speak)
"I’m not jealous of your feelings for people. But I am jealous of people’s feelings for you (it’s not just a theme for a novel!). When you’re there, I know quite well our love is the truest; but from afar I find it a burden to see you trailing round in other hearts. At present — as is sometimes the case — I’d so like to be alone with you, just you and me. I know it’s foolish — since if you were there there’d be nothing but you and me, despite all the others - but you’re far away."
"So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say."
— Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (via introspectivepoet)
"Every day is exactly the same."
Nine Inch Nails, “Every Day is Exactly the Same,” With Teeth

"No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention.
Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day.
This is all practice."
— Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters (via feellng)
"Everyone’s just looking for reasons to wake up and get out of bed, some do it for nothing but a kiss, perhaps a cup of coffee, others have a harder time; no train to catch, no hand to hold, no reasons at all."
— Kallusion (via psych-facts)
"Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before."
— Mae West (via feellng)
"The same wave never
the shore twice.
It is forever changed
by each grain of
the vast coastline.
I will never fall into
another human being
the way I did for you."
