when it rains ☼

You’re not the worst that could
happen to a person, so stop
apologizing for for the noises
you make. If someone keeps
pointing out the beautiful things
in other people, but never in
you, that doesn’t mean you
have no beautiful things. One
day someone will be glad that
you need “I care” reminders
because it will give them a reason
to tell you they love you, even
if they just said it the day before.

anne, note to self: one day you’ll be right for someone (via anneisrestless)

Your neck looks best when you
are drinking wine right from the
bottle and I know the length you
like to keep your fingernails. You
are cute when you hum to music
and think no one is listening. I
like to watch your hands when
you are talking on the phone and
imagining I’m the only person in
the world who knows these details.
If you ever go missing, I will
describe you to the police by
explaining the way your breath
sounds and how your jaw looks
when you are laughing.

We forget we’re
mostly water
till the rain falls
and every atom
in our body
starts to go home.

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

Ernest Hemingway (via amortizing)

(via langleav)

I tried to write my life story
in as few words as possible
and just came up with “he’s gone”.
Everything is suffocating without
you, all my minutes are piling
up and I don’t know what to do
with them. I know it’s pathetic
to wrap your whole life around
a person, but I did, and now that
it’s unwrapped it’s all still shaped
like you. Today feels like every
other day except the sky
is gone and the grass stopped
growing. My hand still feels like
it’s holding yours but there’s
nothing there.

anne, breakup poem (via anneisrestless)

Don’t trust charming. Why? Because the boy who can talk all the right words knows it too well. Things like boys and love aren’t meant to be practiced like that, it should be a bit awkward- it should be raw.

Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.
