“Here’s what our parents never taught us: You will stay up on your rooftop until sunlight peels away the husk of the moon, chainsmoking cigarettes and reading Baudelaire, and you will learn that you only ever want to fall in love with someone who will stay up to watch the sun rise with you. You will fall in love with train rides, and sooner or later you will realize that nowhere seems like home anymore. A woman will kiss you and you’ll think her lips are two petals rubbing against your mouth. You will not tell anyone that you liked it. It’s okay. It is beautiful to love humans in a world where love is a metaphor for lust. You can leave if you want, with only your skin as a carry-on. All you need is a twenty in your pocket and a bus ticket. All you need is someone on the other end of the map, thinking about the supple curves of your body, to guide you to a home that stretches out for miles and miles on end. You will lie to everyone you love. They will love you anyways. One day you’ll wake up and realize that you are too big for your own skin. Molt. Don’t be afraid. Your body is a house where the shutters blow in and out against the windowpane. You are a hurricane-prone area. The glass will break through often. But it’s okay. I promise. Remember, a stranger once told you that the breeze here is something worth writing poems about. ”—‘Here’s what our parents never taught us’, Shinji Moon
“Separate Your Head From Your Heart Sometimes, it’s smart to separate, your head, from you heart. Not everything, is the way it’s cut out to be. At times, you have to trust your instincts, for there’s a lot of things, you’ll not see. We all have the tendency to put the blinders on and just look, the other way. For the moment, it’s the easiest thing to do, but time slips away. Take control of your life and remedy, whatever seems to be wrong. The only way it can improve, is refuse to go along. Just learn to separate, your head from your heart, you’ll be happier, in the long run. Remember, you are what you think. Now, start living and have some fun! - Audrey Heller”—Tumbelinaaa.tumblr.com
“ Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—THE BIBLE,1 Corinthians 13:4
I’m the one that will always know what to say about that bitch or that other bitch.
I will listen to your every complaint.
I will make you laugh.
I am pretty damn honest.
Yet I wait.
Who ever the hell he is, he is taking an awful long time.
But I get this shit all the fucking time.
If I’m so fucking cool, why won’t anyone take notice.
And that is where my self-esteem pours down the drain.
It doesn’t correlate.
Fuck me over.
I guess I am meant to ail all my friends.
Because that’s all the good I seem to be doing to my fellow humans.
I just want to give more love.
I guess I have an unhealthy obsession with the idea of love.
And that’s all I’ll ever have.
My man lives on the moon.
