"His eyes were the same color as the sea in a postcard someone sends you when they love you, but not enough to stay."
- Warsan Shire (via arikaftermath)
"if you are struggling in your art, it may mean your creativity does not trust you. how many times has it begged you to be free (out of love), and how many times have you told it no (out of fear.) nothing will flow until you heal this relationship."
- nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
"People who truly love us can be divided into two categories: those who understand us, and those who forgive us our worst sins. Rarely do you find someone capable of both."
- Jonathan Carroll (via winterkristall)
"I’ve always loved words,
whether they hide in books or spill out of one’s mouth.
How they leave,
but always find their way back to me,
how they melt on my tongue-
how they break me
and fix me all over again,
how they understand me
when I can’t."
- Saumiya C, (via poetrysaumiya)
