Do your heart a favor, love. Let him in. Let him take you by the hand. He’s going to wrap you in his arms and you’ll never feel the same. He’s going to teach you every dip and every turn. He’s going to love you and you’re going to let him. Just give him the chance and you’ll soon learn that you’re falling for him just as quickly as you promised you never would.
James Joyce, Finnegans Wake
I’ve closed more doors than I can count
but still people are drawn to me
like moths to an open flame.
‘Look at that girl,
look at how she wears her sadness so well.’
But it is not an accessory I can easily take off.
My pain does not make me interesting,
it just makes me human.
i have no interest in small talk tell me about ur childhood and what ur parents are like and how many siblings u have and if u are afraid of death or if u believe in an afterlife and what ur favorite movie is and if u like romantic comedies or horror movies or action movies and what kind of music u like and why and tell me the bands or artists u loved in middle school but are too ashamed to admit to anyone else
