"If one day you wake up and you no longer care about me," she says, "say so over our morning coffee and I will let you leave."

"I will not ask you why. I will not ask you to stay one more night. I will give you a small smile to say that it is okay and that people lose feelings for all sorts of reasons and that I will survive."

"If it comes to it," she says, "just say so. You should stay because you want to, and you should leave if you need to."

—  Excerpt from a book I’ll never write #131

I’m the kind of person who is at their happiest when they make other people happy…Unfortunately, that means I have this terrible habit of avoiding conflict that could result in upsetting others. 

Even if it hurts me.

The way you look gives me butterflies in my stomach. The way you smile makes my heart melt in an instant. The way you laugh brings joy to my bones. The way you kiss makes my whole body shudder. The way you think makes my mind wander. And the way you love makes me wish more than ever that it was me you loved and not another.
—  The Way You Move Me | Nikita Gill

I want to be
A mystery
A sultry silhouette
Who gets more
Than she gives
And leaves you
With more questions
Than answers.

I am cursed
With a tongue that spills
Too easily
And a soul
That needs to be known
And a heart
Designed to be broken.

I am not a mystery
Not a shadow
Or a whirlwind.
I am a human-
Far too human
To be loved by pen and ink.
