Let’s waste away together We can stay this way forever Because we’re never gonna be as young as we are tonight We’ll let the world know we’re alive We’re here to chase the flashing lights Just wait and see And there’s no need to complicate it This will be our year to take it.
Where the heart is willing, it will find a thousand ways; where it is unwilling, it will find a thousand excuses.
Every now and then, those three little words slip out. No, not “I love you.” And no, not “I hate you.” But I miss you. And for an instant, I can’t stand myself. Because I know you never thought about me half as much as I thought about you. Because I can’t stop thinking about you. I can’t get you out of my head – from under my skin.
“I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again.”
So young and full of running, all the way to the edge of desire.
Steady my breathing, silently screaming,
“I have to have you now.”
Wired and I’m tired.
Think I’ll sleep in my clothes on the floor.
Maybe this mattress will spin on its axis and find me on yours.
I’ll confess tonight you’re all that’s on my mind I know these rooftop nights could last forever. we watched the seasons change, we saw the distance pull us away, from all we shared together.
I will never regret you or say that I wish I’d never met you because once upon a time you were exactly what I needed.
We laughed and felt so strong and so permanent. Thought we could not go on, but somehow we did and I wish that everyone could’ve seen our eyes, I bet they’ve never shined so bright.
We spent the night wishing on stars and throwing pebbles into the water. It felt as though we were dancing within a sea of little bright lights and ecstasy. It was beautiful and the tide was warm on our feet. Red wine helped paint laughter onto a canvas of blue and our movements had never been so fluid. We didn’t care what we looked like, though we surely looked like drunken fools. All that mattered were the tiny fragments of time that we grabbed from the air as they passed over our heads. All that mattered were the stars in our eyes.
If the moon smiled, she would resemble you. You leave the same impression of something beautiful, but annihilating. ~Sylvia Plath
Let’s go down together for one more chance. The skeletons are screaming for one last dance. It’s all the same, the same old sound. This is the end of the underground. ~Hawthorne Heights
But I still remain like the air before the summer Like sunshine after rain Like the time you and I had met and we knew it right then …But do we forget?
“Take all the praise, take all the blame; take all the success, take all the failure; in short, take me.” ~Great Expectations
Well, I’ve had this secret & I feel it’s time that you should know. When I’m in your arms, it turns me on. But I’ve got a conscience, too. & it says my heart’s never in tune with anything I do. ~Nightmare of You
Lights on buildings and everything that makes you wonder… I started laughing. And in that moment, I swear we were infinite. ~The Perks of Being a Wallflower
I look up at the night sky and I wonder about life, about you, about why I’m here. And I look up at those cold, beautiful stars so far away, and I realize life has never seemed so big.
sometimes late at night, i think about all the things that have been, all the things that haven’t been, and all the things yet to be. if my heart could explode into a billion tiny pieces and scatter themselves, if i could live on all over the world. i wonder if this world will ever make sense to me, if i will truly understand anything. and if there’s really anything to understand at all.
I can hear you breathe,
I’m feeling the shake
And the sound of my heartbeat
Can’t let go…
Do you know?
I’m feeling the pain
Of my first love
I let it go…
Can’t let go.
But you told me pretending is for the best. And I held out as far as I could go – do you miss me? I’d really like to know, if you’re left with a feeling I let go. You are just a feeling I let go.
i wish i could love you but sometimes love just doesn’t come through. you were great and i was searching and we stumbled and collided into each other somewhere in the middle of the sand and the waves. and i wish i could love you, but i can’t.
I. Miss. You. The old you, the one that laughed with me, and was nice to me, and was my best friend. The old you, who told me his problems and asked me to fix them, and even if I couldn’t, he’d be happy that I helped him. The old you, who would parent the others and rule them like they were a kingdom. The old you, who would talk shit with me about idiots. The old you, the one who never called me names, or made me feel dumb, or anything.. Just.. The old you, who knew nothing about me and didn’t want to know anything about me..the old you.
maybe this is how it is all supposed to feel. maybe the awkwardness in the spaces between our fingers is meant to be this way. maybe your crooked smile really is my one true weakness, and i’m finally finding it out for my own. maybe slow and steady does always win the race. well at least that’s what i was promised. maybe i’m just as confused as the rest of you, but we’re all just going along, rolling with the punches, because maybe we all don’t know what to feel sometimes so we take the leap and go for it anyway. and maybe i positively love where this is going.
Accept the things
To which fate binds you and
Love the people with whom fate
Brings you together
But do so with all your heart.
You will always be the answer, when somebody asks me what I’m thinking about. ~Lisa Brooks
When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming out. ~Elizabeth Bowen
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. ~James Baldwin
Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given, never forgotten, never let it disappear. ~John Lennon
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet that person, we will know how to be grateful.
True love only comes once in a life time, so take it as it goes and enjoy every bit of it while it is still burning strong.
You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly. ~Sam Keen
Everyone wants to be the sun that lights up your life. But I’d rather be your moon, so I can shine on you during your darkest hour when your sun isn’t around.
Someday someone might come into your life and love you the way you’ve always wanted. If your someday was yesterday, learn. If your someday is tomorrow, hope. If your someday is today, cherish.
