"You brave, brave thing.
One day, you’re going to
stop leaving the door open
for people who only know how
to keep leaving."
"If you get angry, stay silent."
There’s a difference between somebody who wants you and somebody who would do anything to keep you.
"All I wanted was to receive the love I gave."
"I already said too much. I already shared too much, and I want all my secrets back. I hate getting close to people these days, I always regret sharing too much, caring too much, doing too much, feeling too much."
"Please don’t expect me to always be good and kind and loving. There are times when I will be cold and thoughtless and hard to understand."
"I wish somebody had told me that loving people, knowing how to love those people, and those people loving you back were three entirely different things."
"I don’t suppose I really know you very well - but I know you smell like the delicious damp grass that grows near old walls and that your hands are beautiful opening out of your sleeves and that the back of your head is a mossy sheltered cave when there is trouble in the wind and that my cheek just fits the depression in your shoulder."
"One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."
