How do you tell someone that you love them?
Do you whisper it over the phone late at night,
or in their ear?
Do you shout it in a crowd full of people,
or on the big screen at a sports game?
Do you stop them in the middle of something important,
or are you supposed to say it in passing like it’s something you say everyday,
like it’s a habit.
How do you tell someone that every part of you belongs to them?
That every breath holds their memory,
that in 5 years you will only be more full of them,
that in 50 years you will be 73 and still in love.
How do you tell someone that you want them in every way that someone can want someone else.
How do you lay yourself out and say “here,
this is for you”

- x: Why don't you ever speak?
- me: I'm an introvert.
- x: What does that mean?
- me: It means that I'm an observer by nature, that I don't usually speak unless spoken to, but that I'm always silently speaking in my head.
You don’t test a gentle person the way that you don’t steep tea for too long. Submerge me and I will imbue, and what was sweet will be bitter. I will be strong on your tongue and unpleasant to the taste, and you’ll regret drowning me in your guile. My gentleness is not for your taking
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
tumblr made me a much more tolerant and less judgmental person like my cousin be like “omg look at that bitch eyebrows she drew them damn near in her hairline” and i’m like shrug maybe the bitch wanted to have eyebrows in her hairline you don’t know shit about her life.
