"I was never good at math but
odds were that I had a
one in seven billion chance
of meeting someone like you
so that means I was more likely
to be struck by lightning or
to win the lottery with a
one in three thousand and
one in 175 million chance,
respectively, and all I can say is
God, I am the luckiest person
to be able to fall in love with you."
i took this in verona the morning after the arctic monkeys concert and everything was silent and still and i remember thinking that i would have given anything for the world to stay this way
I first know the feeling of what it’s like
To have someone fitted perfectly against a part of you
When my grandma left for a trip
And my mother rubbed my back with boredom and heavy eyes’ lids
And I could not fall asleep because the palm of my mother’s hand did not feels like home
I first know what it’s like to have someone got against you perfectly then
And what it’s like to miss having someone to fit against you perfectly
Now I don’t need someone to rub my back to fall asleep
But I do crave the comfort of embrace and warmth
And dear your embrace I
"Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them."
"Call your mother. Tell her you love her. Remember you’re the only person who knows what her heart sounds like from the inside."
"I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know that there’s nothing but light when I see you"
"I love like a leaky faucet or I love like a dam breaking. There is nothing in between."
i wonder if magic is real, but only in a really mundane way.
when i was little i could almost inerringly switch back to disney channel right as the ads ended when i was channel surfing.
maybe youve never accidentally crushed a ladybug underfoot. maybe your microwave popcorn never burns. maybe you can spin around lots and lots of times before you get dizzy.
is that magic??
honestly im not sure if these are magic or just small, invisible skills. im not sure which i like better.
