“If there’s someone you absolutely miss, you might find yourself talking to them a lot in your mind, creating those fake conversations with them and you answer yourself in their voice in your head. Maybe it’s a girlfriend who dumped you or you know someone who died or that sort of thing, you adopt their personality or the memory of who they were as a means of staying close to them.”—Matt Berninger (via simply-quotes)
The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
“There have been about 514 Leap Years since Caesar created it in 45BC. Without the extra day every 4 years, today would be July 28, 2013. Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year…so technically the world should have ended 7 months ago.”

“The sweetness of her body meeting and filling my mouth, my hands, wherever I touched, felt right and completing, as if I had been born to make love to this woman, and was remembering her body rather than learning it deeply for the first time.”—Audre Lorde, Zami: A New Spelling of my Name, p. 139 (via agradschoolbreakup)
What is with everyone’s need to lose their virginity so soon? I understand there is a certain time where it may become “acceptable” to not be a virgin any longer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be. I think a lot of people feel the pressure to lose it when once it’s gone, it’s gone. I remember a…

All I know is that you’re so nice.
You’re the nicest thing I’ve seen and
I wish that we could give it a go.
See if we could be something.
I wish I was your favorite girl.
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world.
I wish my smile was your favorite kind of smile and I wish the way that I dressed was your favorite kind of style.
I wish you couldn’t figure me out, but you always wanna know what I was about.
I wish you’d hold my hand when I was upset.
I wish you’d never forget the look on my face when we first met.
I wish you had a favorite beauty spot
that you loved secretly because it was on a hidden bit that nobody else could see.
Basically, I wish that you loved me.
I wish that you needed me.
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars, actually I meant three.
I wish that without me your heart would break and I wish that without me you’d be spending the rest of your nights awake.
I wish that without me you couldn’t eat.
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep.
Look, all I know is that you’re the nicest thing I’ve ever seen, and I wish that we could see if we could be something.
