words from books

You wanna know why I’m in love with you?“ He asked as he ran his hand along my jaw.

“Sure,” I answered feeling as if my heart could explode at any moment.

“ I fell in love with the way your laugh is always the loudest in the movie theater or the way your facial expressions always give away how you feel. The way you smile & freak out when you see puppies makes my heart want you. Or when you take a shower & your hair starts to curl. & when you say you hate it I don’t understand because to me it’s fucking beautiful. I fell in love with the way you feel so intensely. & your sarcasm is something that I just can’t live without. & the way you want everyone to be happy gives me hope that not everyone in the world is cruel. I love how sunsets and thunderstorm bring you pure joy. & you have the faith of a child that makes me want to protect you even though you’re the strongest person I know. I’m in love with everything that has to do with you.

—  E.M.S {Everything you fell in love with}
She was so absorbed by you,
by your thoughts and your ideas,
so full of you, full of your habits,
that she totally forgot about herself,
you were covering her soul with those clouds of yours,
all gloomy and heavy,
she did not know who she was anymore,
but when you left,
you took back all your clouds,
and then the sun came to her,
everything inside of her flourished,
her thoughts sang her favorite songs,
her mind laughed at her father’s jokes,
her heart danced and danced and danced,
her soul smiled, because she knew,
even the moon has clouds,
but it doesn’t stop her from lighting up the sky every night.


you go girl, you light up this world

Never forget people who taught you great things in life. Always look back and have time to appreciate them. For they are a part of you and your story. Without these good people, you’ll never be the person who you are right now. They helped you to build your confidence, they inspired you to believe in yourself. So as much as you can, continue appreciating them for all of their contribution to your positive life. Never forget people who were there when you felt you lost everything. They were blessings in your life, keep them with you. Walk with them.
I want you to stay, even if I’m so moody. I want you to stay, even if I’m telling you not to. I want you to stay, despite the fact that you cannot and you will not because you don’t love me anymore. I want you to stay because I love you. I want you to stay because no matter how hard it is for me to understand that you are not coming back to me, I still want to pretend that you will. Eventually, someday, when the time comes, you will be back again in my life. You will stay with me not because I asked for it but because that’s what your heart wants.
She never let me read her poetry, she said it was too personal, too full of secrets she was too afraid to tell. I found it ironic how her way of keeping these secrets, was to post on a blog to thousands, blocked to anyone who may know her personally. But that was her, so unwilling to share her weakness to anyone who could use it against her, but oh so willing to share with anyone else who would listen.

He’s just a friend…

A friend who makes me laugh like there is no tomorrow
A friend who causes butterflies
A friend whose hugs I never want to get out of
A friend who makes me feel nervous
A friend who has the most beautiful eyes in the world
A friend who whispers sweet words

hell yeah, he’s just a friend

—  Just a friend

“I want you, believe me”, he pleads with his eyes.

She takes a deep breath, gathering all her thoughts. This would be the last time she would look him in the eyes and be this close to him. The last time.

“I believe you but it doesn’t matter anymore. I have waited months for you to tell me that, hoped every night for you to say those words to me. I’ve waited so long and it’s too late now. I don’t want you anymore, I don’t need you anymore. You took too long to figure out what you really want and it’s too late now. I’m sorry.”

With those words she turns around and leaves, closing yet another chapter of her life.

—  e.s. // it’s too late.
And yet, even with all the chaos that was going on, I was there sitting silently with a bottle in my hand, just wondering if your drunken thoughts led to me like mine led to you.

Just because.

Just because I like to look at photos of wedding dresses, doesn’t mean I would like to walk down the aisle in one.

Just because I like the idea of having someone to love, doesn’t mean I need it.

Just because I have this image of my success, doesn’t mean I’ll reach it.

Just because I like to drink, doesn’t mean I like the taste of alcohol.

Just because I write, doesn’t mean I’m a writer.

Just because I smile, doesn’t mean I’m not sad.

My mind and my heart are on two different rhythms.

Goddess of night, of ice, of shattered carnival-glass hearts – in pieces, but in strong pieces. In the mirror your scars spell “broken”, “troubled”, “alone”; I run my hands over them and I feel “brave”, “strong”, “independent”. The mirror will lie until it cracks and splinters. I will not.
Goddess, I will speak these words into your skin until there are your synonyms for truth:
You are summer storms, electric and enticing; you are spring winds, clean and calming; you are rolling ocean waves and spiralling sunlight and everything beautiful in the world. Goddess of night, of ice, of shattered carnival-glass hearts:
You are strong.
