The Faults In Our Stars

I nudged my head into his shoulder.
“Thanks for offering to come over.”
“You realize that trying to keep your distance
from me will not lessen my affection
for you,” he said.
“I guess?” I said.
“All efforts to save me from you will
fail,” he said.
“Why? Why would you even like me?
Haven’t you put yourself through enough of
this?” I asked, thinking of Caroline Mathers.
Gus didn’t answer. He just held on to
me, his fingers strong against my left arm.
“We gotta do something about this frigging
swing set,” he said. “I’m telling you, it’s
ninety percent of the problem.”

— Laurell K. Hamilton, A Stroke of Midnight

“My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them.”

your mind

“Fill your mind with truth, your heart with love, 
your life with service.”

— Rumi

I choose to love you in silence…
For in silence I find no rejection,
I choose to love you in loneliness…
For in loneliness no one owns you but me,

I choose to adore you from a distance…
For distance will shield me from pain,

I choose to kiss you in the wind…
For the wind is gentler than my lips,

I choose to hold you in my dreams…
For in my dreams, you have no end.


Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.

If you find someone

If you find someone who makes you smile,
Who checks up on you to see if you’re okay,
Who watches out for you and wants the very best for you,
Don’t let them go.
Keep them close and don’t take them for granted.
People like them are hard to find.

If I Knew

If I knew how to write a song
I’d write one everyday
It would say that I’m in love with you
And why I feel this way

It would have to say you’re pretty
And as rare as a desert rose
It would say you’re a looker
From your head down to your toes

You are funny, dainty, fragile
And as feminine as can be
You’re smart charming lovely
And everything to me

You’re my comfort when I’m lonely
You’re my peace when I need rest
Of all the women I’ve known
I must rate you the best.

You’re the orchard in the jungle,
you’re the better half of me
You’re all of this and so much more,
you mean the world to me

Still so much is left unsaid,
It would take me far to long
I know how much I love you,
If only I could write a song.

It's Me Your Shadow
I’ve been following you throughout
your life; I’ve watched you make
mistakes, even sometimes falling twice.

Giving your love to whoever offers
a good lay, I am your only true love
so why in my arms you won’t forever

Searching for yourself in broken cisterns,
where your heart could never run free.

Down to the dirt you are ready to sink.
You’ll never notice me, the shadow that
catches you when you are ready to fall,
and the one who’ll come running when
you call.

Following you on your journey, that keeps
putting my heart in the grinder, and like a
sticky note I keep trying to remind you.

It’s me your shadow, the one you call your
best friend, the one who has to pretend.
Pretend that I don’t love you in a different
way, the one who gather you up when your
heart is about to break.

Yes I feel like your shadow that you call
upon when things go astray, and you keep
wasting me like good woman can be replace.

It’s me your shadow saying I love you, I am screaming out and like those that have hurt
you, you is tarring my heart out.

Don’t abandon something real for something
that will never live.

It’s me .

— John O’Donohue

“One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences. Often secrets are not revealed in words, they lie concealed in the silence between the words or in the depth of what is unsayable between two people.”

— Paulo Coelho

“When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke – the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert.”
