I knew when I said
I love you
that I was inventing a new alphabet
for a city where no one could read
that I was saying my poems
in an empty theater
and pouring my wine
for those who could not
taste it.
― Nizar Qabbani (1957)

If you don’t like piercings, don’t get any.
If you don’t like tattoos, don’t get any.
If you don’t agree with abortions, don’t get one.
If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t marry your same gender.

If you don’t like something, don’t do it.

But DO NOT prevent someone else from doing it just because you don’t like it.

I couldn’t look at you and breathe at the same time.
― Becca Fitzpatrick, Silence (via missinyouiskillingme)

Now I have conversations
with myself in poems
because I do not know
how to speak to anybody else.
Sorry For Ignoring Your Call I Forgot How To Talk, Lora Mathis  (via lora-mathis)

We will never be anything
more than a drunken hookup,
a goodbye at 2am
before I sneak back down the hall.

You are glasses we can’t find
and everything
rolling across the floor
and I am desperation,
half gone before I make it
in your door.
I taste like alcohol,
and you taste like home.
Make sure you move your lamp
and plant off the side table;
close the gin this time;
put your laptop on the desk.

We are mixed up.
I kiss you in the hallway,
while another boy waits in my bed.
You have me up against the wall
and we pull away every time
a door opens.
I thought it was my name;
you thought it was yours;
someone was calling out “love me”
from down the hall.
How ironic.

"I have to be up at 7."
“I never realized your eyes were blue.”
“Did you ever tell anyone?”
“Did I do something wrong?”
“Yeah, she’s really pretty.”
“Never again?”
“Well, not never.”
“Good night.”

When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that’s love.

Sometimes you end up never speaking to someone who meant the world to you again. And that’s okay. You cope and you survive. Don’t let your losses keep you back from new gains.
― I wish someone had told me this when I was hurting, y.g.  (via shrewdshrew)
