"How can I write about you, if I never had you?
Not even the warmth of your touch, or the sweet of your kiss.
All I own are fractions of my imagination. Untold stories.
How can one dream of love, but have not felt it?
I don’t have the answer… Though I know this…
This unrequited love will be the death of me."
"To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves."
"It really sucks when you want to be more than friends with someone who will always see you as a friend.
-I know you don’t feel the same"
I am literally so pathetically in love with one person that I am losing myself in his smile and his words, neither of which are for me.
"Love: Expected. Not guaranteed."
"The knowledge that she would never be loved in return acted upon her ideas as a tide acts upon cliffs."
"Because, if you could love someone, and keep loving them, without being loved back … then that love had to be real. It hurt too much to be anything else."
"I was Calypso on her island;
I waited. They came. I loved them.
But none chose to stay."
Why’d you take so long
Every time I thought I found you
I was oh so wrong!"
"It’s funny how one human being can cause so much emotion in another. Tears, smiles, just…everything. Like they can determine your entire mood for the day. They can cause so much regret, so much pain one day, and bliss another. And the funny thing is, they have no idea. They don’t even know you think of them this way. They don’t know how much they seem to affect you. And it’s confusing, because when you look at it, they’re really just another human being. There shouldn’t be anything, really, that makes them different, they just are. They may not even be the most attractive person, but they just get to you, you know? Like in your eyes they’re just perfection. Just complete, and utter perfection…"
Emxxtional (just something peculiar to me)
I can’t miss you
Because in order to miss you, I had to have you
And in order to have you, you had to want me back
We all know that would never happen.
"i think that sometimes there’s just someone who, no matter what you do, you cant seem to shake the thoughts of them from your spiderweb mind and even though you’ve said a total of, oh, two and a half words to him in your entire life, something about the flash of his smile sends glissandos rolling up your snowflaked spine.
and no you don’t know his favorite color or the way he looks when its winter and the dim light falls across his hair, but the taste of your thoughts make you think that it must be good. but sometimes you follow your thoughts onto a path and down into a rabbit hole and when you emerge from it, nothing has changed. nothing about his smile was ever meant for you and he doesn’t look up from the cracked sidewalk when you try not to whisper his name."
"I drown myself in
work and daydreams of your laugh,
yet time still goes slow."
