When I’m with you, I act different. In a good way of course. I smile more and laugh more. I don’t have to pretend everything is okay when it’s really not. With you, I can drop the fake smile and put on a real one. I don’t feel hurt and alone when I’m with you. Instead I feel safe and loved. You’re easy to talk to, and you listen to me. I don’t have to worry about holding back with you. I don’t feel self-conscious. I don’t ever feel insecure or sad. You show me that you really do care and you’re not just pretending. I really appreciate your company, because with you I’m different. With you, I’m happy.

since i knew it would be hard for me to decide on lyrics for Day 6 of Mikayuu week (with the song lyrics prompt, I take any chance to mix my favorite music with my favorite ships/fandoms) I decided to make a list of lyrics that reminded me of them

18 song quote lyric things plus a whole song that reminds me of them

it’s gonna be hard to decide

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no none, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket of coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
—  C.S. Lewis
Writers, especially poets, are particularly prone to madness. There exists a striking association between creativity and manic depression.

Why are more creative people prone to madness? They have more than average amounts of energies and abilities to see things in a fresh and original way—then because they also have depression, I think they’re more in touch with human suffering.
