❝ After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises …
After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
Jorge Luis Borges (via sequences)
❝ Just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you.
Read it over.
Let those words resonate in your mind.
Nayyirah Waheed (via junglemusk)
When I was trying to quit smoking
and we drank white wine from Mason jars,
you called my freckles cocoa powder
and I called your green eyes
I am learning how to be a grown-up
who pays bills, cooks her own meals,
and doesn’t cry at words like
I think I just want to be friends.
The truth is this:
Love is an organic thing.
It rots and softens.
All That’s Left To Tell, Clementine von Radics (via bundleofstring)
❝ How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking you for anything, but to be okay.
Gibran Khalil Gibran (via nizariat)
