"Love isn’t where
we hide our ghosts.
love is where
we release them."
Maza-Dohta (via writemoreloveletters)
"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking you for anything, but to be okay."
Gibran Khalil Gibran (via nizariat)
"I don’t know what to tell you other than the fact that a giraffe’s heart weighs 22 pounds and that somebody once told me when flies fall in love, their entire brain is rewired to only know loving each other. When one of them dies, their memory becomes blank. I hope you never think about anything as much as I think about waking up next to you during a windstorm at 5 am."
"Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars
and think of the galaxies inside my
heart, and truly wonder if anyone will
ever want to make sense of all that
Christopher Poindexter (via oceaniceyes)
"It happens sometimes that I cry
Like a child for no reason.
It happens that I get fed up from my eyes for no reason
It happens that I get tired of my words
It happens that I get tired of my toil
For no reason."
Nizar Qabbani (via antieverythingism)
"A soul mate is not the person
who makes you the happiest, but the one
that makes you feel the most.
Who conducts your heart to bang the loudest,
who can drag you giggling
with forgiveness from the cellar they locked you in."
Sierra DeMulder, excerpt from “Unrequited Love Poem” (via hellanne)
"I’d never chosen to be alone, but that was the way things had turned out, and I’d grown used to it."
Sebastian Faulks, Engleby (via larmoyante)
"Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.
Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain."
Pablo Neruda, from “Here I Love You,” in Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair (Penguin, 1993)
