It might seem like the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget the one that forgot you.
To hell with them. Nothing hurts if you don’t let it.
People say it gets better but it doesn’t. It just gets different, that’s all.
If you get hungry enough, they say, you start eating your own heart.
I have scars on my hands from touching certain people.
I’ve been homesick for countries I’ve never been, and longed to be where I couldn’t be.
I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a hundred silent ways.
Be very, very careful what you put into that head, because you’ll never, ever get it out.
-Thomas Cardinal Wolsey
My heart is closed, soon it will crumble away. Stifling my tears, I scream every day. My heart has shown me that believing is nothing. My own heart killed me.
Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed. So I stayed in bed and drank. When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn’t have you by the throat.
-Charles Bukowski, Factotum
I opened my mouth, almost said something. Almost. The rest of my life might have turned out differently if I had. But I didn’t.
-The Kite Runner
The thought of her hands
touching his hair
makes me want to vomit.
To be joyous is to be a madman in a world of sad ghosts.
If it’s meant for you, you won’t have to beg for it. You will never have to sacrifice your dignity for your destiny.
If I am the needle, you
are the thread.
I actually just exist
to write poems about you.
-Clementine von Radics
