Take pride in your pain; you are stronger than those who have none.
Lois Lowry, Gathering Blue (via eirenics)

For you I undress down to the sheaths of my nerves.
I remove my jewelry and set it on the nightstand,
I unhook my ribs, spread my lungs flat on a chair.
I dissolve like a remedy in water, in wine.
I spill without staining, and leave without stirring the air.
I do it for love. For love, I disappear.
Kim Addonizio, “For You” (via fleurishes)

You assumed that your memories would be the same. You didn’t know that one gets to forget and the other has to remember.

It’s Hard To Get Around The Wind  |  Alex Turner

And you can shriek until you’re hollow
or whisper it the other way
Trying to save the youth without putting your shoes on

Looking for a new place to begin
Feeling like it’s hard to understand
But as long as you still keep pepperin’ the pill
You’ll find a way to spit it out, again
And even when you know the way it’s gonna blow
It’s hard to get around the wind.

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

Breaking free

random-people:

Behind her strong, calm exterior and her well faked smile, all her unexpressed, negative emotions and feelings are fighting to get out. The chaos inside runs her life. Her sorrow, her self-loathing, her torment, her loneliness, her disappointment, her envy, her frustration, her helplessness, her anxiety, her grief, her guilt, they are all fighting to be released into the world. One day they will break free, stranger.

Oh god it’s wonderful
to get out of bed
and drink too much coffee
and smoke too many cigarettes
and love you so much.
