missing you quotes

Late at night,
you become my favorite thing
that has never been real.
It’s all-consuming,
the way that exhaustion
makes loneliness
a god.
I pray to the emptiness.
My voice
should be loud enough to cut through silence,
but silence is never silence
when the thought of you is screaming
in my ear,
and my voice is never my voice
when you aren’t around
to hear it.

Is it love if it hurts?

-It’s heartbreak.


we’re friends, but, but not friends. friends but i still find myself on the phone with you every night, laughing at every joke you crack. friends but you still think of me before you go to sleep. friends but you still think i’m beautiful. friends but you still want your hands on my body. friends but always, always more than that.

They say if you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours.

Well I’ve been coming back to you every single time, but you still insist on letting me go.
