"You have to believe this one thing, kid. You gotta believe that someone will love you no matter what they knew. Because someone out there thinks you’re fucking perfect. He probably saw you in the coffee shop today while you hum to the song playing in crappy speakers and he thinks you were goddamn beautiful the way you did it. How utterly lost you were. He never thought he could see something more beautiful than how his grandparents kept their love for fifty years. Or maybe it was your neighbour who was mowing the lawn when he saw you walking to your porch and opening your front door when you accidentally dropped your keys; he was too much of a coward to get it for you but the state of regret pounced upon him like he was hopeless prey. There is a boy wishing you were spooned in his arms this very moment. He wants you so goddamn much. He will make you feel so loved that you’ll forget the definition of “broken”. Because he’ll fix you. He’ll never get drunk when you’re both in a party because he promised your father he’ll return his baby girl completely unharmed. He lets you drink two beers though, just enough to feel sober. He’ll grind in your back because you asked for it. He’ll leave a trail of the softest kisses ever recorded on your neck down to your collarbone. He’ll drive you home safely and he will too in the coming days. He’ll remember what you’re allergic to. He’ll kiss your forehead in the most random times. He’ll take care of you even if you’re not sick. And when you ask why, he’ll tell you because you’re worth it, and you’ll believe him— because you are."

less pure after you’ve touched her
maybe you should take a look at your hands"

"I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming."

1. When a boy who leaves goosebumps on every inch of your skin tries to play you his favorite song, don’t let him. He’ll get it stuck in your head and under your fingertips and when he leaves, you won’t be able to listen to it without feeling like you’re choking.

2. Don’t let him touch you all over no matter how much you want to feel him against you. Leave a few spots untouched so that when you’re sleeping alone again, at least your left wrist and an inch of your right hip won’t sting with the remaining burn of his mouth.

3. Don’t let him break your ribs.

4. Don’t watch the sunset with him. He’ll poison it. You won’t be able to look at the sky without swallowing a mouthful of him.

5. Don’t mistake wasps for butterflies. Sometimes when you feel your stomach flutter and your hands start to shake it’s pain, not love.

6. Just because he tells you he loves you doesn’t mean he’s going to stay.

7. It’s okay to delete his number after he kisses the pretty girl he met when he was drunk. It’s okay to leave when he hurts you. You don’t have to keep falling into him.

8. When he tells you that you’re beautiful, try to remember that you were beautiful before him too.

9. Just because he reads and smokes cigarettes and talks about the stars doesn’t mean he’s your soulmate.

10. After you kiss him, remember to wash your mouth out right away so he doesn’t burn into your tongue.

11. He’ll kiss you in the rain and take you to little coffee shops. He’ll brush your hair out of your eyes and kiss your nose. He’ll grab your waist and whisper in your ear but six months later you’ll find yourself drunk texting him that you miss him and he won’t respond.

12. Your heart is going to break a million times. It’s going to feel like the world is falling apart around you. Your lungs will stop working some nights. You find yourself grabbing at your bones trying to hold yourself together. You’re going to feel like you’re dying. It’s going to be okay. You’ll find someone else to kiss you goodnight.

So, my girlfriend wakes up in the middle of the nights sometimes, and if she notices I’m not close to her, she taps my face until I wake up and just holds her arms open and says, “Come. Warmth.” And then falls back asleep when I do as told.

this is the cutest thing ever

then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love"
