But could we…

Someday share a deep conversation.
Someday smile and it not make things awkward.
Someday make plans to see each other in the future.
Someday hug out of affection instead of congratulations.
Someday call on the middle of the night.
Someday steal a kiss, or two, or tree.
Someday share anything and everything.

But someday could it just be you and me.

I Want To Be Your (Arche)Type

I’m not going to be afraid
of this blush anymore.

I will tear open
these blanket cocoons,
keep my mind’s eyes unfurled
till red gossamer laces scleroses.
Pupils will protrude regardless
as they stare at one fixed point
untouched by the future:

Hours of isolation matter not
when I have spent years
in the distant reality
of your company.
Transience is transportation
and we move quickly with blinks
and come together with
synergistic eye contact.

I will take the shape
of the classic hero in stride
if you can title yourself
whatever you please with pride.
I will shower you in heartfelt gifts,
bathe you in adoring love,
clothe you in shielding safety,
and beautify you with smiles.

I’m not going to be afraid
of this crush anymore.

I don’t understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment. And they have to like you back. A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances.

there's this guy at my university who since December i always caught looking at me and smiling. He's super shy, so it took him until last week to finally talk to me!! I'm really outgoing and i can easily talk to people but when he spoke to me I got so nervous that I kinda kept the convo boring. It was a bit awkward in my opinion. Do you have any advice for the next time i see him at school? I'm really interested in him but I'm afraid he might be too shy to talk to me again 😢

it’s normal to be shy around your crush or a guy you like! it’s a part of your nature i guess haha! i’ll give you some tips and i hope they work!!

  1. be yourself! i think this is probably the most important one because this guy cannot like you if you pretend to be someone else just to please him! it’s always better to stick with your “original” personality. you’re gorgeous on the inside just like that, you’ll shine!
  2. start simply! a compliment or a short sentence it’s always a nice start! don’t panic if you don’t get a bunch of things to talk about right at the time. the conversation will start to follow! it’s very important to make eye contact in this step as well and give him a cute smile!! 
  3. interesting topics to talk about! you can read online really good tips to not have a boring conversation. also, if you what he likes, it’s easier for you to have an idea about a conversation! 
  4. don’t lie! if you don’t like a hobby that he really enjoys, don’t lie! he will eventually find out and he will take you as a liar. it’s normal to have different tastes! you don’t have to like everything that he does.
  5. be nice! if you’re teasing him, make it obvious and don’t tease too much. it can hurt his feelings. keep away from touchy topics!
  6. ask him out! you’re a really outgoing person so you can ask him out not as a date or anything but as a friend! you can learn more about him and his tastes! it’s important to have a person who respects you and likes you for you so don’t judge!

some of them are kind obvious but sometimes we tend to forget about them so it’s important to have those in mind! 

There’s a part in the movie

where you can see right through the acting,

where you can tell that I’m about to burst into tears,

right before I burst into tears

and flee to the slimy moonlit riverbed

canopied with devastated clouds.

We’re shooting the scene where I swallow your heart and you make me

spit it up again. I swallow your heart and it crawls

right out of my mouth.

You swallow my heart and flee, but I want it back now, baby. I want it back.

Lying on the sofa with my eyes closed, I didn’t want to see it this way,

everything eating everything in the end.

We know how the light works,

we know where the sound is coming from.

Verse. Chorus. Verse.

I’m sorry. We know how it works. The world is no longer mysterious.
