night book

Imagine you suffer from insomnia and during those sleepless nights, you take the time for reading. When you start dating Loki, he is at first unaware of it as you hide it well, but he soon realizes that something is amiss. One night he wakes up and sees bed empty and cold and fears that someone must have taken you. When he stands from bed and walks around your apartment to search for you, he sees light in the small room that is usually locked and approaches it. Opening the doors, his eyes widen at the books that are displayed from one bookshelf to another, standing right next to each other along with a sofa by the window, where you were sitting and reading. You don’t spot him right away, until you feel pair of arms. Loki asks you of the reason why you’re up and reading and you finally tell him of your insomnia.

Growing Pains

Honestly it hurts, growing without you.

But I’ll be stronger in the long run.

I’m growing out of you, it’s taking

A long time. But I know I’ll be okay.


You were the first to teach

Me that “forever” ends.


One of the most important things I’ve ever learned is that life goes on. People leave, relationships change, and things you loved become less fun. Parties end, seasons end, lives end. But good things happen too. It’s give and take, we lose and gain, things change for better and worse. We just have to accept and trust in that.

“I throw myself into books and read constantly because I would rather live in ten different worlds than live in this world right now.”

“I’m so tired of loving you in my sleep and waking up alone.”

–a special kind of hell

I’m homesick for something that never existed.

I took this with me to New York and recently finished it – it’s on my reading list for a class I’m taking next semester and I’m really excited about it!
