always loved this


“Well, let’s say that since you were little, you always dreamed of getting a lion. And you wait, and you wait, and you wait, and you wait but the lion doesn’t come. And along comes a giraffe. You can be alone, or you can be with the giraffe."
“I’d wait for the lion.”
“That’s why I worry about you.”

“Do not call me perfect,

a lie is never a compliment.

Call me an erratic

damaged and

insecure mess.

Then tell me that you

love me for it.”

Beau Taplin || You’re a fucking wreck and I love you for it. 
(via afadthatlastsforever)


do you ever see a person you love do something really fucking ridiculous and you just watch and think “ah yes this is where i have laid my affections”


Every nerve in my body

could be damaged

or numb,

and I’d still

be able

to feel you.

It will scare you.”

“We don’t learn to love each other well in the easy moments. Anyone is good company at a cocktail party. But love is born when we misunderstand one another and make it right, when we cry in the kitchen, when we show up uninvited with magazines and granola bars, in an effort to say, I love you.”

I will never get tired of your kisses


“Thank you for every kindness. Thank you for being someone I was always proud to be with. For your guts, for your sweetness. For how you always looked, for how I always wanted to touch you. God, you were my life. I apologize for everytime I ever failed you.”

What Dreams May Come (1998)
