but in the end, you’re still everything i want even if i have someone who’s treating me better than you ever will or did.
—  truth.

“I’m not dying for you”
but the minute I said those words I knew they were a lie


because I’ll fight with you
I’ll bleed with you
and the world will fall if I can’t save you


but more than that, I’ll stay with you after
I’ll wash the blood from your skin
and hold you arms like you’re the only oath I’ve ever kept


because the minute I hold your gaze and the universe falls silent
I know that the heart that pounds in this room is not mine or yours
it’s the heart we’ve created with the broken pieces of each other

Never chase love, let it come to you. It’s a matter of time and patience. We’re all itching for happiness but you can never catch what’s never yours.
—  Don’t ask for too much, but don’t take too little//Ted A.
i think i'm finally over you. i deleted the pictures i had of you on my phone. maybe one day i’ll stumble on those pictures again and think about how into you i was. i focused too much on wanting you to never realize that i needed to love myself first. maybe then you might hit me back in the future, but i’ll be long gone and away from you.

My ultimate aim is not to make you fall in love with me. I want you to ring me up when everything in your life goes wrong or when everything seems to go right. I want you to give all your firsts to me, and if not all your firsts but at least the best you’ve ever had. I want to hold you till you fall asleep. I want you to share all your deepest darkest secrets- the ones that haunt you like a ghost. I want you to think of me whenever someone brings up happiness. I want to be your safe place, your family, your home, your shoulder to cry on, your anchor. And my final destination is not to make you love me back, I want to make you fall in love with yourself before making you fall in love with me.
