“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.”—N’tima (via sunflower-fields-forever)
Even if I took your shoulders and shook you, screamed, “My love could fill oceans! But it couldn’t build a boat to bring me to you!” you would not understand.
I want you to remember the hot hot heat of your breath on my neck, how you had never wanted to be so close to anyone in your life, that the light from the moon was perfect that night on the bridge in the Venice canals.
I am tired of being a square peg in a round hole! Silence.
The words we don’t say matter just as much as the ones we do.
