She is a mystery, her emotions are too, you can’t figure her out, no one can. She is not defined by meaningless words on ripped papers, I would love to write about her but I cannot define her by a sad poem, she is so much more. She dances with the devil like he is made of the threads of an angel. she glances at the sky like it’s a reflection of her soul, she finds pieces of herself in the moon and stars and she can’t help but raise her hand and move her fingers softly while murmuring to a sweet lullaby. She doesn’t hold on to the people she loves, scared that if she did she’ll break them under her fragile hold. She looks at herself like she is a scintilla, another pointless nothing, but she looks at people like they’re sunflowers with galaxies floating in their roots. she is a delicate snowflake but she isn’t measured by the temperature, she doesn’t melt when she is warm, she isn’t controlled by the weather, in fact the only thing that controls her is the unknown limit of mortality. She clutches her soul like its the only salvation she has of her existence. She isn’t scared of the darkness, the fire in her veins is enough to provide her light. She isn’t like most of us, she isn’t stuck, she is lost and she doesn’t want to be found. -Nada Toghoj 🎭•

There’s a corner of my heart that is yours. And I don’t mean for now, or until I’ve found somebody else, I mean forever. I mean to say that whether I fall in love a thousand times over or once or never again, there’ll always be a small quiet place in my heart that belongs only to you. -Beau Taplin • T h e C o r n e r 🌹•

“…and I hope someday you won’t tell me about heartbreaks. You won’t tell me how things fall apart. You won’t ask me for my advice because you no longer need them. Instead, you will tell me how wonderful life is. And I won’t stop you from describing how it feels to be whole again. Then how you were able to pick up and put the broken pieces back together. I will be there smiling at you every time you pause on talking and glance at me. I will be there listening. Because that was one of the best stories I would pay attention to.” 💛✨-

Side thought: No, you will never be the same as before your shattering. But like teacup stains on poetry pages…you are far more beautiful now that there is proof that you lived and loved, that you can endure. All my love ❤️

“When You Write the Story of Your Life, Don’t Let Anyone Else Hold the Pen”
To me, the quote is meaningful in several different ways. Fundamentally, it means that you have to be in control of your own life. You chart your own course & don’t stop until you reach your final destination. It means that you’re the captain of your ship and sometimes you have to steer that ship through stormy seas until you complete your journey & are in a safe harbor. Don’t let anyone else write your story. You know as a unique individual who you are and what you contribute to the world. You know that you’re an inherently decent person. You know what’s in your heart. Always make sure that the truth comes out and don’t allow other individuals with different motives and agendas of their own to misrepresent who you are or what you have done. It’s a sad fact of life that there will be occasions when people put their own spin on events and it doesn’t represent reality. That’s why you have to always speak up for yourself. If you don’t, you can’t expect anyone else to. Don’t let inaccuracies or untruths become common perception. Speak up and stand up for yourself. Don’t let them take the pen away from you. You have to wield the pen and write the chapters of your life both in terms of the actions that you take and how they are recorded in your own history. So, start your chapter and make sure your writing each word with passion. #createyourstory #huffingtonpost ✍🏼

I am not the first person you loved. You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night. Our love came when we’d given up on asking love to come. I think that has to be part of its miracle. This is how we heal. I will kiss you like forgiveness. You will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms will bandage and we will press promises between us like flowers in a book. I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat on your skin. I will write novels to the scar of your nose. I will write a dictionary of all the words I have used trying to describe the way it feels to have finally, finally found you. And I will not be afraid of your scars. I know sometimes it’s still hard to let me see you in all your cracked perfection, but please know: whether it’s the days you burn more brilliant than the sun or the nights you collapse into my lap your body broken into a thousand questions, you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I will love you when you are a still day. I will love you when you are a hurricane. —Clementine von Radics, Mouthful of Forevers 💙🌊

“how do I tell you that I want to spend the rest of my life with you. how do I tell you I want to spend every next minute I get with you. how do I tell you that I want you forever. how do I tell you that I want to be the one you wake up too everymorning that’s holding a plate of pancakes and fruit and a cup of orange juice for you. how do I tell you that I want to kiss you and straighten your shirt collar every day as you leave for work. how do I tell you that I want to be the one that runs to the door and greets you with a hug and kiss as soon as you get back from work. how do I tell you that I want to be the one the stays up late on weekends making popcorn and watching silly movies while cuddling you to sleep. how do I tell you that I want to have the privilege of serving you homemade soup and tea in bed when you feel sick. how do I tell you that I want to be the overly blessed girl that gets to walk down the isle wearing that pretty white dress staring at you. how do I tell you that I want to be the mother to your crazy, insane, dorky children. how do I tell you that I want to be the old and grey couple that never loses love for one another. how do I tell you all of this ..maybe I just did.” 🌹

Saturday Night: loud music, too many alcoholic beverages, great moments that you never want to forget but will in the morning, drinking phone calls, dancing, laughing, a good time.
Sunday Morning: warmth, laying under covers, hot coffee, not wanting to get up, comfy pyjamas or none at all, sunlight streaming through the windows, happiness. -4am 🌞☕️

1. She might not reach out to make plans, because she doesn’t want to be shut down or rejected, especially early on. Instead, she’ll respond by making sure you know how much she appreciates you taking initiative, & will be open to trying new things when you propose them. 2. She stopped herself from just blowing you off. She’s trying. Trying to believe that you aren’t just anyone, to believe your first move won’t be to hurt her. 3. She wants to love blindly, but she can’t because before you met her, she learned exactly what can happen when you wholeheartedly put all your faith in one person: They can leave. But her belief in that big, unattainable love exists & if she’s giving you a chance it means you have qualities she thinks could fit with hers. She wouldn’t bother otherwise. 4. She will be overly protective about her private life/friends/family. 5. She’ll talk about the future in generalizations – not so she doesn’t freak you out, so she doesn’t freak herself out. 6. If she calls you out on something that bothered her, she’s beginning to trust you. She’d typically brush it off, ignore it, or phase you out if you did something to upset her. But if she’s willing to explain how you made her feel in a specific instance, she thinks you’re worth keeping around. 7. She takes commitment seriously & doesn’t want to rush. Fear of rejection means biding your time before putting yourself in a vulnerable position. 8. The more she likes you, the higher her expectations will be. (But if she sees how hard you try, she’s also more apt to be forgiving.) 9. She will appear to not need you & it’s through no fault of your own. She doesn’t want to appear to rely on anyone but herself because people who are hesitant to trust don’t want to openly admit that they need anyone else to be happy. 10. You’ll know she’s going for longevity if she opens up to you about why she has trouble trusting people in the first place. She won’t lay it out for you, but she’ll give you pieces from her past relationships, or share a small bit of the story about who hurt her. She’ll want you to understand where she’s coming from, & she’ll want to understand anything that hurt you too. #MayaK 

“He turned away and I stumbled on my words as I extended a hand towards him. I could say his name right now and he would look towards me. I could still have a chance if I just clutched the back of his shirt and told him not to leave. I knew that my actions had been hurting him for a long time but I still wanted to be with him. He walked away slowly and I didn’t say anything. I pulled my extended arm back into my chest and tried to blink my tears away. It wouldn’t be fair for me to keep pushing my feelings onto him. I can’t let my emotions hurt him anymore. I’ve done that too many times already. He walked out the door and out of my life. •-

I turned my back to her and slowly started to walk away. I thought I heard her mumble my name but I couldn’t be sure. I glanced back and saw her shaking hand reaching towards me. Her eyes were closed like she was fighting an internal battle with herself. I wanted to pull her close and ask to her accept my feelings for her. But I wasn’t known as an honest person. She looked like she was in agony over me. I didn’t know that my feelings for her could make her so upset. I can’t just keep letting my emotions hurt her. So I kept walking …. I walked out the door and out of her life. She looked so lost as I left. But now she won’t have to feel obligated to like me anymore. I won’t be able to hurt her anymore.” Misunderstanding #lockedheartbreak ✂️
