He knew that I love you also means I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated (via bookmania)
The French have a phrase for it. The bastards have a phrase for everything and they are always right. To say goodbye is to die a little.Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye (via larmoyante)
Hey, everybody! My book Honeybee is currently available for purchase through CreateSpace and Amazon. It’s 108 pages of aggressively personal poetry: a year of breaking up and making up and breaking up again, a year of misplaced blame and learning slow acceptance, a year of letting go.
I hope you enjoy it! As always, thanks for reading.
I was always attracted not by some quantifiable, external beauty, but by something deep down, something absolute. Just as some people have a secret love for rainstorms, earthquakes, or blackouts, I liked that certain undefinable something.Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via hellanne)
Rape jokes are not jokes. Woman-hating jokes are not jokes. These guys are telling you what they think. When you laugh along to get their approval, you give them yours.

my mom told me this when i was like 6. though not specifically about rape jokes, she just said “when people are being mean and you laugh, you are agreeing.”
“when people are being mean and you laugh, you are agreeing.”
I do not want you if you only want me
with the lights off.
Too many people have loved me like a secret;
like porn magazines stashed under the bed;
like a period stain or childhood trauma
or a monster they’re fucking scared of.
Love me like a line from your favorite song;
like a swear word; a nasty habit;
like the tattoos on your right arm.
Love me like a funny story
you can’t wait to share with family and friends.
Love, will you want me? Will you love me that way?
Turn the lights on, baby.Sade Andria Zabala (surfandwrite) | Worst Kept Secret (via surfandwrite)
I want to be the secret
you don’t know how to keep.
