"You have to die a little
To start living
Smoking cigarettes, and
Speeding around town
Are the only way
To feel Alive these days."
Morgan Anderson - Life, Death, and Cancerous Activities
Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed.
She tastes like a different flavor of bubblegum than you are used to.
She opens up a book that you had to read in high school, and a folded picture of us falls out of chapter three.
Now there are two unfinished stories resting in her lap.
Inevitably, she asks, and you tell her.
You say: I dated her a while back.
You don’t say: Sometimes, when I’m holding you, I imagine the smell of her vanilla perfume.
You say: She was younger than me.
You don’t say: The sixteen summers in her bones warmed the eighteen winters my skin had weathered.
You say: It’s nothing now.
You don’t say: But it was everything then.
Some things are better left unsaid. (via poppyflowerpoetry)

"It’s wrong what they say about the past, I’ve learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out."
The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini (via ibecamethesun)
"Some people reflect light, some deflect it, you by some miracle, seem to collect it."
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves (via le-entracte)

Real Friends - Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing + Snaps
"If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?"
This line encapsulates the concept of a good kid in a bad city, and it cuts into one of the most moral questions in human existence: Can good come from evil? The best part about the line, as is true of the best poetry, is that it doesn’t answer the question it asks. For Kendrick’s immediate purposes, he’s the flower and the city is the dark room. The question is: Can you trust him?
