I’m sorry you were not truly loved and that it made you cruel.
— Warsan Shire (via lightshinesoutofdarkness)
You tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful, something not everyone knows how to love.
— Warsan Shire (via sandy-isanickname)
How odd, I can have all this inside me
and to you it’s just words.
— David Foster Wallace’s, The Pale King (via poetisch)
