"I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough."
~Mauritis Cornelius Escher
"I shout, but no one hears. I cry, but no one listens. I listen, but no one speaks. I question, but no one answers. You call; I follow. You cry; I help. I question, but you don't answer. I search, but you're not there. Still, I keep listening, hearing and hoping for someone to just understand."
"Everybody's searching for a hero. People need someone to look up to. I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs... A lonely place to be, and so I learned to depend on me.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
"I may only be one person, but I can be one person who makes a difference."
~The Land, Epcot Center
Isn't it funny how a heart is shaped like two upside-down teardrops?
Me -- I'm a hopeless romantic. I believe in wishing on stars, soulmates, and love that never ends. But yet, sometimes I feel like the only single person alive. I feel so alone. No matter what I try to do, I'm left in solitude. Maybe I try too hard. Maybe I really am hopeless
It's funny, most people can be around someone and then gradually begin to love them and never know exactly when it happened
"I felt like Cinderella at the ball, but my prince charming never showed up."
True friends are the people who are there for you unconditionally. They are the people who never question you and support you no matter what the circumstances are. They are the people worth living for
It's funny how you can be mad at someone one moment and want to hug them the next
Don't run when I push you away. It's then that I need you the most
When love is supressed, hate takes it's place
I'd rather go blind than watch you walk away from me
The saddest thing is to see me in love with you after everything you put me through
And when you cry I'll be right there to tell you, you were never anything less that beautiful
And when someone is drifting away from you, you feel it screaming inside your chest. Your heart feels numb and ignorant because the truest of love isn't easy
All my life I thought I needed the perfect setting, the perfect opportunity, and the perfect way to tell someone I love them... But suddenly I realized... I don't need any of that... Because I know it will be perfect... as long as I am saying it to you
I used to have this self-confidence that no one could break - I used to be a fighter and always pushed things to the limit, but now, so much has changed and my life is just a blur I don't care about the things I used to love or the things I used to hate. Now I'm nothing
They say I'm a bitch and that I'm moody, but what they don't really see is that I'm just a wall protecting myself from getting hurt
You think you know me. You think you have me all figured out, but how can you know me if I don't know me?
"I did not know I loved you until I heard myself telling so, for one instance I thought, 'Good God, what have I said?' and then I knew it was true."
Broken hearts can heal, broken friendships can't
"Love is when thoughts of but one man fill your heart, when he means more than life to you, when you know you would do anything for him and shall die if he is taken from you. Desire is when you ache to see him and touch him, when he causes your body to burn and tremble. Desire does not demand love before it can ensnare you, but desire with love creates a powerful bond."
The part that sucks about love is that you do get to choose who you love, but you don't get to choose who loves you back
Only the broken truly know what it feels like to go insane
And maybe this will end tomorrow or 2 weeks or 4 months or maybe even 2 years from now but no matter when it ends I'll never regret any of it
"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
~Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude
"When guys hurt you, you can put on a mask and pretend that you are all right. But when friends hurt you, you can't do that because they can see right through that mask."
There are moments that mark your life, moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same. And time is divided into two parts, before this and after this. Now sometimes you can feel such a moment coming. That's the test... or so I tell myself. I tell myself at times like these strong people keep moving forward anyway, no matter what they're gonna find
I wanted to thank you for making me see what it's like to care for someone that much. I want to thank you for making me believe I was loved, and making me believe that you wanted to be with me, thank you for hurting me, and showing me the world was real
I keep trying to convince myself that I hate you, and that you are the most annoying person on earth, but there's this little nagging voice in my head that keeps saying, 'You're Lying
"I'm not in love with him. He's my best friend."
You're so afraid to continue what we have. You know something's there. You feel just as much as I do when you touch me. You like it as just much as I do when you kiss me. It's just you're pulling away now because you know that if you don't pull away soon, you might find yourself falling in love, and I don't think you're prepared for that
Why is it that we spend a lifetime trying to define what love is.. what love means.. yet we know in an instant if we are in it?
You complete me. Really, you do. You can make me smile even when I'm in my worst mood. It's only in your arms that I forget all my troubles, and I have complete happiness. And, you're the only one who can fill that gap in my heart, the space that has come to know you... that place that knows you're the only one for me, that gap that will accept no one but you
I hate being his best friend and hearing about the two of them. But since I have always been his best friend, I can't say anything, and it's killing me
I'm in love with him. Always have been, always will be. Okay, so maybe I'm not truly in love. But there is something about him that I just can't get over.
The saddest part about our relationship is that no matter what you do or say to me, I'm not going to go away. I love you more than you may ever understand, and true love is loving someone's imperfections and faults at all costs. So, that is just what I am going to do; I am going to love every, single one of your faults as if you were perfect, and for that, I am going to love you forever
The hardest part about being in love is when a friend says something so sweet, it makes you want to cry, and you then realize that he has always been in love with you, and you love him back, but you're also in love with the guy who means the world to you
I miss who you used to be. I don't know who you've become. But I do know that the person you once were is still in there somewhere. I used to see a glimpse of him every now and then. But now he's gone, and I'm so afraid he's never going to come back
"Girl: Give it to me.
Girl: My heart, give it to me.
Guy: But I'm not done with it.
Girl: But you broke it, now I have to glue it back together. I'd let you glue it back together, but obviously you don't know how to handle someones heart. So I'll just take it back now."
Thinking of him is like breathing... It's what you do. You love him every day as naturally as your heart beats. And your family and your friends are ready to send you to the loony bin because either they've stopped believing in love or they forgot what it's like... They don't believe in it, or maybe they don't believe that you're in it. But you do. You know what it's like to be in love: completely full inside, completely happy. Like your whole life this far was really just a preparation for being with him. A collection of heart-breaks and life's lessons leading you into the person you are, the person which perfectly compliments him. The one you love.
Here they go again. The tears they fall. The sleep wont come. My eyes are red. My heart is sore and my strength's undone. I tried so hard to keep control and make you proud but once again I've lost myself beneath that cloud
You know what the saddest part about this is? I put my whole life into this relationship. I let myself open up to you, and I now love you more than anything in this world. And you are just walking away from it all, tearing my world apart. I can't believe after all we have been through you are going to sit there and tell me you don't care and you don't love me. I'm so mad but upset all at the same time... because you are leaving and there isn't a thing I can do... but watch.
A lot of people get flipped out if you're quiet. They say stuff like, 'What are you thinking?' And if they don't start interrogating you, they start talking, going on and on about stuff that's totally irrelevant, and the silence gets so big and loud that it's scary
If you're going to walk, walk tall
Don't ever let anyone make you believe that you don't deserve what you want
When all the world is telling you 'no', tell yourself 'yes' ten times louder
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself
"All the best love stories have one thing in common, you have to go against the odds to get there."
~Party of Five
When you talk about tomorrow, I'm not sure about today. When wou tell me that you love me, what am I supposed to say? Sometimes I don't feel the same way as wou feel, words like forever, they scare the shit out of me
When I see him... his smile, his frown, those eyes, just everything about him... I end up loving him just as much as I did before I stopped. I guess once you love someone, and admit it... there's no crossing back. It's a line that will forever stay embedded deep within your heart. Because once you have loved that someone, it doesn't go away... you're forced to care
"When is the age where even the moment we go from being kids to being... something else? I mean so much can happen in a year. People say that we're growing up too fast today. Sometimes adults make it sound like it's our fault, or at least our choice. But how can we not? We feel invisible, and we know so much. One thing I do know is that we're so eager to lose our innocence and I wonder if one day we'll look back and wish we hadn't."
When two people first start out they say a lot of things, and make a lot of promises to each other, but somewhere down the line, the sweet things they once said become bitter words, and the promises they swore in their hearts they would keep, are broken
I'm still young and I wanna stay that way because growing up won't make everything ok
I'm larger than life and if you look at me right there's no doubt you'll assume I'm worth the fight. I'm constantly drunk be it wine or writing and I dream without ever sleeping. I don't just exist, I float. I drift on the breeze and many a time you'll fine me entertaining no one but smiling as if the world's my party which it is it's all a matter of perspective, the angle you live at. I'm a ninety degree circle spinning in an orbit of music, mayhem and magic and nothing beats that
"I've found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts so much... because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting."
"And, it doesn't mean love's wrong just because your feeling low. And, it doesn't mean the love's gone 'cause you feel like you want to let go."
"I do not want to make reasons for you to stay, only reasons for you to return."
Optimists say the glass is 1/2 full. Pessimists say the glass is 1/2 empty. I just think we should pour it out on the table and make a mess
I guess the reason we could never work things out is because you were too proud to forgive me for something I really was sorry for
