I miss the person that I thought you were. Before the birth of the child. The one who awoke my heart with painless words and darkened my mind with a possibility that we never reached. Your handsomely crooked smile disguised the truth from both of us. I fear that I will never let go of the act you played. Now I only see a stranger staring back at me.
It’s like drowning but you just won’t fucking die."
Urban Dictionary definition of unrequited love (via 42morrow)
"There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t ‘cause I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love and then you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever."
Grey’s Anatomy: Meredith Grey (via azo82)
"I’ve exposed your lies, baby
The underneath is no big surprise
Now it’s time for changing
And cleansing everything
To forget your love"
You need to be comfortable with being alone. You need to be able to sit down with yourself in a coffee shop or bookstore or wherever, and be okay with it. Let the silence be a means of having quality time with yourself.
Words were never so useful, so I was screaming out a language that I never knew existed before.
