Sometimes I feel like I’m not… solid. I’m hollow. There’s… nothing behind my eyes. I’m a negative of a person. It’s as if I never— I never thought anything. I never wrote… anything, I never felt anything. All I want is blackness— blackness and silence.
Sylvia Plath (via wordsthat-speak)
Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation begets disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest.
George Lass, Dead Like Me (via misswallflower)
it’s about who you miss at 2 in the afternoon when you’re busy, not 2 in the morning when you’re lonely.
Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He is very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.
Cristina Yang (via thisisthehorrorshow)
For him, you will be the light at the end of the tunnel, the halo of glowing yellow that he has been waiting for. Never forget that you are someone worth steering for, someone worth the swift kick in the opposite direction worth all of the trials and checklists and almostrights because you are a mountaintop, the crush of violet on skin from a rainbow that seems so close to the earth that it must be real. When he comes to you, gorge on his compassion. Fill yourself completely. He will think you a miracle, a revelation and will count himself as the lucky one. Do not question him or yourself — this is exactly the kind of love you deserve.
