She reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch she’d rush away again.

I learned that love doesn’t hold its tongue and passion doesn’t bow to what ‘they’ think. Sometimes it’s painful to be brave, to look fear in the face - and know Your name.

It Is In Your Self-Interest To Find A Way To Be Very Tender
Jenny Holzer



Your mother asked you not to be soft,
she said your fragility would
have the men running
towards women who looked like they could
unearth mountains,
she said love was only for strong women
women who prayed
women who turned both cheeks
women who were silent
women who understood that men need
and need and need
and want and want
and want
women who were ready to be less than enough,
she said there is nothing brave
about a woman who asks of a man
what men haven’t been made to give,
she told you that respect was in movies
and kind love was only in poems.

and you almost believed her.

But if you loved me
Why’d you leave me?
by All I Want—Kodaline (via luciferslovelife)
Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.
