And you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer, prettier,
less volatile, less awake,
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams..
..and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.for women who are ‘difficult’ to love by Warsan Shire

I am invincible, as long as I’m alive..
“Everything happens for a reason” is no reason not to ask myself if I am living it right.
Mama said, “think before speaking..”
You look so good, it hurts sometimes.
I tell everyone, I smile just because..
It’s the kind of thing, you only see in scented, glossy magazines.
I’ll know it, when I see you.
you’ll be so good for me..
Would you want me when I’m not myself? When I’m someone else?
I will leave the light on, I’ll never give up on you.
Come January we’re frozen inside, making new resolutions a hundred times..
And look at the stars.. Don’t they remind you of just how feeble we are?
You can be mad in the morning, or the afternoon instead..
I refuse to believe, that my life’s gonna be just some string of incompletes..
Fathers be good to your daughters, daughters will love like you do.
It’s not that we don’t care.. we just know that the fight ain’t fair.. so we keep on waiting.
twice as much ain’t twice as good.. It can’t sustain like a one half could.
Bad news never had good timing.
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood.
How do I stop myself from being just a number?
I’m not color blind, I know the world is black and white.
So scared of getting older.. I’m only good at being young.

Life can be so good if you let it. But you must trade with life. You give something and you get something, then you give something of yourself again and you receive something again. Life goes bad if people try to take from it without giving. Then they came away empty-handed, and they grab harder and more often, growing more disappointed and disillusioned each time.Padre Gregorio, Tender Triumph (via sleepyheadsparadise)

I’ve learned to let go of the things I cannot have.. of situations I cannot change.. and times that I cannot bring back.
In life, there are moments that you have to stop.. think.. and tell yourself, “give up and learn.. so that next time, you’d know better.”

i keep telling myself not to wait for him.
but not long after that, i find myself.. waiting for him
I realized that waiting for someone is really hard work.Han Ji-Eun, Full house (via crisdieta)

When you feel invisible, when you feel abandoned, when you feel insignificant, there is the hope that one day, something happens that substantiates you, then people will take a second look, maybe even a first look, and understand, and appreciate, and love.Strange Fruit, Chico Garcia (via sightforsoreeyes)

There are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to really know it is a mistake is to make that mistake and look back and say, “Yup, that was a mistake”. So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake because then you’ll go your whole life not really knowing if something is a mistake or not. And damn it, I made no mistakes. I’ve done all of this: my life, my relationship, my career mistakes-free. Does any of this make sense to you?
