I’m a paradox. I want to be happy, but I think of things that make me sad. I’m lazy, yet I’m ambitious. I don’t like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don’t care, but I really do. I’m a conflicted contradiction. If I can’t figure myself out, there’s no way anyone else has.– (via 12februarie)
my sadness is not– this is what a hero looks like (via gnarly)
a cut for you to bandage
and it is not
a bruise for you to kiss
i am not waiting
for you to save me
i am hoping you will love me
while i rescue myself
Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever. It’s like the tide going out, revealing whatever’s been thrown away and sunk: broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones. This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes, not knowing the future.– ~ Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye (via conflictingheart)
It’s 4:30 in the morning, it’s always 4:30 in the morning.– Charles Bukowski (via scrawnyrotten)
