"the sound of glass"
doesn't always mean breaking
sometimes it's the way she enters a room

Here's The Best Advice From A Single Guy Who Spent A Year Interviewing Couples

thatslove:

Nate Bagley says he was sick of hearing love stories that fell into one of two categories — scandal and divorce, and unrealistic fairytale.

“At the end of Ty’s life, I want him to be able to say, ‘Terri was the greatest earthly blessing in my life — the best thing that ever happened to me — and that I’m a better man because of how she loved me.’ And that’s the goal that I live with every day. That’s how I want to love this man.”

“I take your name and feed it to you, and even the air quivers. This is how I will remember you years from now. This is how I will tell you that you bring me to my knees. You are not a girl, you are an emotion. You are not a girl, you are the quiet of the sky in India just before a monsoon.”

— Azra.T “Elemental” (via 5000letters)

“I keep telling you "I love you"
and it comes out as an apology.
I’m sorry. You want it to be bolder, bigger, less pathetic.
‘Love’ has become a fighting word for us.
You argue that you love me more. I don’t object.
I turn over in bed, sob into the pillow, pity myself.
I mumble it back to you because you
like the way it sounds coming out of my mouth.
We’ve turned caring for each other into a duty dance
that’s cheapened "love."
It has become another way of apologizing
as you roll your eyes and say, "Sorry, I forgot to buy milk",
a habit with every evening’s, "Night, love you too",
a promise we keep breaking:
"Of course I won’t, I love you",
a lie.
It hits me that we no longer know what it means
when you slap me across the face and instantly,
I tell you I love you. I can’t help it.
I have spent months associating it with this much pain.
My insides are bullet-holed basins where the past goes to die.
I feel death when you stand close.
Stay away from me.
I love you.”

— Lora Mathis, “We Need a New Word for ‘Love,’ It’s Overused”  (via violentwavesofemotion)

“Don’t you hate that? Uncomfortable silence. Why do we feel it’s necessary to talk about bull in order to feel comfortable? That’s when you know you’ve found somebody really special. When you can just shut up for a minute and comfortably share a silence.”

“I know how to write a poem or two
but when it comes to you
even the spaces between sound like ‘please’ or ‘stay’.”

— Azra.T, “I only know how to yearn” (via ofsupernovas)

“I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”

— Pablo Neruda (via fawun)

“I asked her if she believed in love, and she smiled and said it was her most elaborate method of self-harm.”

— Benedict Smith (via poetrea)

“Anyone can easily walk away from somebody else. Nobody is forced to stay, we all have choices. The real test is if someone would rather stay with you, even though walking away could be so much easier.”
