You have your father’s hands.

Weather-beaten
so often
that rough became smooth.

Cracked
thick and thin wrinkled
rivers mapped down
knobby knuckles.

You have your mother’s face.

Oh
the tapestry you weave
with that wicked tongue.

Your eyes are my demise,
your eyes are my salvation.

How many lies have spilled
from those honey-laced lips?
My,
she taught you well.

How often have you laid
a heavy hand
on your softest cheek?

We are not your parents

and you are more
than their mistakes.

anonymous asked:

So if Ashton and Gemma are dating, how often do you think Louis texts Gemma and reminds her quite smugly that it is all thanks to him since he discovered 5sos?

At least several times a week!

Louis: Hey Gems. Ashton told me you really enjoyed your date today. Glad to see you two are getting on well. Just wanted to say you’re welcome. No thanks necessary…you know, for basically introducing you guys ;)

Gemma: Oh shut up. How could I forget? You never stop reminding me. We can’t all meet our boyfriends by chance on some reality TV show.

Louis: What can I say? I’m just so proud to be a little matchmaker. Proper romantic that I am and all that.

Gemma: Yea yea. How about we all get together for a double date sometime? Me and Ash. You and H. How does next Tuesday sound?

Louis: Sure thing. I’ll ask Haz as soon as he…erm…comes up for air

Gemma: You two are disgusting 

Louis: xx :)
