feed your heart

You know that you’re in love with him,
when you text him,
but he won’t answer back.
When you see him randomly on the street
and your heart pounds in your chest,
like the first day you met him
when you were a mess.
When you see his posts on your feed,
and your heart just screams in need.
When you hear his voice,
and you just want him near.
But you know you’re in love with him
when you check the time,
and you’ve gone the whole day
thinking “I wish he was mine.”

Friend Zone

He claims that he loves you

But even in my position I place no one above you

He feeds you designer this designer that to show you your worth

I rather listen to your heart, feed your soul, and help you heal your hurt

He low key left you high and dry when shit got scary

Yet it was me holding your hand the night you miscarried

He’s not the first to fuck over your heart

Meanwhile I’ve been here from the start

Fuck boy after fuck boy claimed they would do you good

Can’t help but think these niggas couldn’t match what I could

Through all the years I’ve seen a lot

I’ve accepted the Friend Zone is my designated spot

As a dedicated friend I promise to be here til the end

As a man genuinely in love with you I pray for your hurt to end

I look forward to continued countless chill nights
Whatever my role I want you in my life

Just know if ever given the chance I’m going to love you and love you right

Best Friend just know I plan on doing that for life

Do not let yourself be a perpetual victim of what has been done to you. Do not surrender your heart to your wounds. Instead, build a bridge between the two. Water you wounds with love and forgiveness and watch them feed your heart a blossoming wisdom. Your pain is just the beginning of a garden, do not kill the seed before it blooms. Treat yourself with care and you will be surprised by all the blessings your pain will grow into.
—  Myss Bradley, you are a flowering thing.
The Signs + Owl City

Aries: Shine Your Way
“Open road but it’s still dark,
Build a fire from a spark,
And shine, shine your way,
Feed the feeling in your heart,
Don’t conceal it then you’ll start,
To find, find your way“

Taurus: The Saltwater Room
“Time together is just never quite enough
When you and I are alone,
I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time, only time“

Gemini: Wolf Bite
“It’s another werewolf
All dressed up in sheep’s wool
And changing when the moon’s full
Will you show me the way?“

Cancer: Deer In The Headlights
“Tell me again was it love at first sight
When I walked by and you caught my eye.
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright?
Well smile because you’re the deer in the headlights.”

Leo: If My Heart Was a House
“Circle me and the needle moves gracefully
Back and forth, if my heart was a compass you’d be North
Risk it all cause I’ll catch you if you fall
Wherever you go, if my heart was a house you’d be home“

Virgo: Designer Skyline
“Collections of books and documents
Arise and parade around my cluttered desk
Reworking the math and measurements
Until I’m convinced these plans are picturesque
Like mountains in the Midwest“

Libra: Fireflies
“I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems“

Scorpio: Cave In
“I’ve had just about enough
Of quote “diamonds in the rough”
Because my backbone is paper thin
Get me out of this cavern or I’ll cave in“

Sagittarius:  Umbrella Beach
“Home will always be here, unseen, outta sight
Where I disappear and hide
I think dreamy things as I’m waving goodbye
So I’ll spread out my wings and fly”

Capricorn: Strawberry Avalanche
“This is a world of dreams and reverie
Where I felt the stars explode around me
A grass blade flashed with a gleam as it slashed open a moonbeam
And I stared back breathlessly
As mountains of fruit tumbled out I barely had the chance to shout
Oh strawberry avalanche, crash over me“

Aquarius: Hello Seattle
“Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
Feeling warm in your sand
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
Rolling in the evening breeze“

Pisces: Vanilla Twilight
“The silence isn’t so bad
‘Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly”

I was trying to think of a way to show my appreciation for the crazy amazing amount of messages, comments, kudos, and support you guys give me, so I figured doodling Claudia with a big bowl of her famous macaroni and cheese (with sausage) was a good way to go… SO HERE, HAVE A CLAUDIA! There isn’t a day I don’t think about how lucky I am to have so much feedback on Home and now Raising Home, so THANK YOU for being there for me!! :)

“Let the darkness find you if it must. Throw off the quick and tempting escapes, and seek help only from those who would teach you to grow, feed your soul, embrace your heart, but would not steal away your journey.”
