"She puts her hands on either side of my face, and the room falls away. I have never gotten so lost in a kiss before.
And then, the space between us explodes. My heart keeps missing beats and my hands cannot bring her close enough to me. I taste her and realize I have been starving.
I have loved before, but it didn’t feel like this.
I have kissed before, but it didn’t burn me alive.
Maybe it lasts a minute, and maybe it’s an hour. All I know is that kiss, and how soft her skin is when it brushes against mine, and that even if I did not know it until now, I have been waiting for this person forever."

"It’s not that I can’t fall in love. It’s really that I can’t help falling in love with too many things all at once. So, you must understand why I can’t distinguish between what’s platonic and what isn’t, because it’s all too much and not enough at the same time."
— Jack Kerouac (via larmoyante)
"when she rose out of bed that day and made her way groggily to the grey morning light of her living room, she drank her coffee as though she needed it. she closed her eyes and breathed letting the hot liquid seep down her throat, warming her cold night’s sleep and melting the haze of tension in her tired eyes. concentrating on the rich aroma of the hazelnut creamer and the freshly fallen rain that was wafting in from a window before her, she was okay. she took a few more gulps before sinking back into the saggy, worn armchair that she always found herself in on mornings like this. her eyes drifted to a place beyond the open window, set upon something you nor I could’ve identified had we been looking in the very same direction - she was somewhere else."

"I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved."
— Shana Abé (via violationofvolition)
"For the person who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, their mind will remain the greatest enemy."
— Krishna (via yogachocolatelove)
"If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate."
