I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere. We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them. I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.
When you’re struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through.
I wish slitting the wrist of the clock
would let this moment last forever
You should never get comfortable with the phrase “I love you”. Never say it just to say it, just because there’s nothing else to say. Never use it to get out of trouble or as a last defense when you’re losing an argument. Love should never be treated as an alibi, should never be used as an excuse, should never exist as an effortless convenience. And don’t you ever dare say it “just because.
For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.
