You don’t listen to her, you don’t care how it hurts, when you lose the one you wanted cuz he’s taken you for granted…
I am a drifter, and as lonely as that can be, it is also remarkably freeing. I will never define myself in terms of anyone else. I will never feel the pressure of peers or the burden of parental expectation. I can view everyone as pieces of a whole, and focus on the whole, not the pieces. I have learned to observe, far better than most people observe. I am not blinded by the past or motivated by the future. I focus on the present because that is where I am destined to live.
I’m not a “crazy cat lady”…
I’m a “cat enthusiast”.
I can’t recognize myself lately, I’m someone I used to know. I think you took me with you, and I was hoping you could just leave me somewhere else. Because I’ve been waiting for myself, waiting for all the pieces to come home.
Say it’s over.
Say I’m dreaming.
Say I’m better than you left me. Say you’re sorry, I can take it.
Say you’ll wait, say you won’t.
Say you love me, say you don’t.
I can make my own mistakes.
Let it bend before it breaks.
I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone’s heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.
-Stuck in Love [movie]
You took my soul and wiped it clean.
Our love was made for movie screens.
Drink up with me now,
and forget all about
the pressure of days;
do what I say,
and I’ll make you okay,
And drive them away:
The images stuck in your head.
“We met at the wrong time. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway. Maybe one day, years from now, we will meet in a small coffee shop in a far away city and give it another shot”.

“The marks humans leave are too too often scars.”
-Augustus Waters, The Fault in Our Stars
I get awkward when someone compliments me and I don’t know what to say.
Them: You look pretty today.
Me: Happy Birthday.
How come you don’t want me now?
Why don’t you want to wait this out?
How come you always led me on, never take my call, hear me out?
Why don’t you want to win me now?
Why don’t you want to show me off?
Tell me why you couldn’t try,
Couldn’t try to keep me here.
-Tegan & Sara
I flirted with disaster last night.
Now disaster won’t stop texting me.
“I vow to perfectly love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other”.
Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot. I only exist when you need something.
