You surprised me. Caught me off guard. I wasn’t looking for you. But there you were. You snuck into my life. I didn’t think I wanted anyone to be by my side. But I’m glad to have you here. You’re amazing. Being with you is so easy. We’re the same person, but it works. People tell you that opposites attract. I don’t agree. I’ve been with my opposites. It never worked. But with you it’s different. We think the same way and act the same way and it just works. I haven’t liked anyone in a year. But I like you. And I want you here. And that scares me. But sometimes the things that frighten us turn into the things that make our life the most worthwhile.
“There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words, and still not understand you. And there are others who will understand — without you even speaking a word.”—Yasmin Mogahed (via wanduring)
“Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.”—Johanna de Silentio (via smellyally)
There’s room in the bed now.
So we can sleep together without even touching.
So much empty space.
So much empty space between us.
That’s when you wake up.
You reach for me and pull me close.
You turn me towards you and wrap your arms tightly around me.
We fit perfectly together.
I feel your body relax.
Like all it needed was me.
And it makes me smile.
Because all I needed was you.
And there’s so much empty space.
So much empty space around us.
Sometimes the moon is most beautiful when it is full and glowing with all the light it takes from the sun. Those are the nights when you walk outside and see the world drenched in a different kind of glamour - it is softer around the edges and in the shadows hide all the wonders of the night.
And sometimes the moon is most beautiful when it is just the slightest remainder of a crescent - just barely there. It is the deep golden yellow of a sunflower and illuminates the edges of the moon which you cannot see.
And it is nights like these that I crave for - when the majesty of the moon cannot hide the subtle brilliance of the stars. For it is the stars I truly love.
