Love is simple
Don’t look at the grass on the other side. The one you’re standing on right now was green once, remember? Someone is probably standing on that other side right now looking for greener grass somewhere else. What’s that telling you?
We complicate things when it comes to love. And we tend to flower up that shit like everything should be a Disney fairytale. I’m guilty of writing about it in that way myself and I do get sucked into the romantic side of it now and then. What can I say, I’m a fool and I’m too soft. I blame my old man, he’s worse than me. But I get these moments of clarity, I have to admit usually induced by too much wine around the time when one day turns into the next, when it all clicks. But it shouldn’t be that complicated at all. It’s actually pretty damn simple if you pull all the layers of bullshit away.
Believe it or not, that damn love thing is best when it’s a two way street. Stating the obvious, I know, and yet how often is that not the case? Both need to be committed, to the relationship not a mental institution, or it all ends up in pain one way or another. And these days, who the fuck needs more pain in their lives?
So what’s the moral of this useless bit of drivel? Love the shit out of the person you’ve decided to be with or get the fuck out. It’s black or it’s white. No damn grey areas. Decide now, and then live with your decision without regrets. Because regrets will eat at you until the point where you’re too broken to ever fully recover.
Love is simple, people make it complicated…

Hello, October

"There’s something beautiful about keeping certain aspects of your life hidden. Maybe people and clouds are beautiful because you can’t see everything"

 Kamenashi Kazuya (via bon-za)

"Intimacy is not who you let touch your genitalia. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."

ooooooo ok cool :)

"The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation."

Monica Drake, Clown Girl (via larmoyante)

"No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."

Robin Williams (via larmoyante)

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
Rest in peace.

"She buried her ears into the calm of his heartbeat, and in a matter of seconds: fell terribly in love with the way her loneliness fell softly and suddenly, asleep, in his chest."

"There is no shame in being hungry for another person. There is no shame in wanting very much to share your life with somebody."
