this is not a quotation from the books

I want to take away all the memories you have of me. I don’t want you to remember how I looked dancing around the kitchen in my underwear. I don’t want you to remember the little black dress I wore on our first date. I don’t want you to remember how I tasted the first time you kissed me. I don’t want you to remember the way my voice sounded when I sang in the shower. I want to take away all the memories you have of me. I don’t want you to remember my favorite color or the way I take my coffee. I don’t want you to remember my birthday or my middle name or the color of my eyes. I don’t want you to have these pieces of me. Because you don’t deserve them. You don’t deserve any of them.

Isn’t it weird how you can actually feel the pain in your chest and stomach when something really hurts your feelings.

When you are hurting remember
that a wilting flower has the power to disseminate seeds of life.
Fragments of broken mirrors will always manifest reflections of beauty

and the storm inside of you will find its calm.

“I miss you, but not the type of missing where you crave to be close to someone, the type of missing where you’d do anything to hear their voice.”

- Excerpt from a book I’ll never write (excerptsfromstories)

Usually when I feel lonely it’s not because I don’t have people around me it’s because no one seems to think the way I do. That being said, I feel alone because I’m surrounded by so many people that don’t know who I am.
It’s painful to say goodbye to someone you don’t want to let go, but more painful to ask someone to stay when you know they want to leave.

Don’t ever fall in love with someone that cannot be yours. I promise you, it’s better that way.

Because if you do, it’ll consume you, devour you to the point where you can’t breathe.

It’s heartbreaking, knowing that person will never belong to you.

But what hurts the most is…

Watching them love someone else that isn’t you.

Quote from an unwritten story that needs to be written soon.
No one likes showing they’re sad. Ever. But look into her eyes and tell me that she’s not broken.
—  @typicalboreddteen “Excerpts from a book I’ll never write.”
You’re so fucked up, and you know it too. Not the bad kind of fucked up. The kind of fucked up where life just hit you with a load of disasters that you couldn’t even begin to understand, let alone handle.
Every day I watched you battle these demons; I hope the day comes where you don’t have to anymore.
I hope you love yourself some day.
