I am so ridiculously into you. I don’t even know how to describe this feeling. It’s like… it’s like a train speeding through the wilderness in the dead of night, wild and free and dangerous - no, it’s like a hot cup of tea and a blanket after walking through a snow storm - no, it’s like the stillness of a sunrise or that quiet dusky hour before dark - no, more like a lone walk on the beach when the waves crash into the shore and you can feel everything at once. It’s like a flash of lightning right outside my window, how time stands still, how everything is illuminated. There’s magic in that, and fear, and beauty too. Yes, you make me feel things I don’t even have a name for.

I’m a writer but I’m speechless (via whispersofstardust)

Runaway

Never was much of a romantic
I could never take the intimacy
And I know I did damage
Cause the look in your eyes is killing me
I guess you’ve got another advantage
Cause you could blame me for everything
And I don’t know how I’ma manage
If one day you just up and leave

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
