"I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle."
Clementine von Radics, Mouthful of Forevers (via larmoyante)
"You get pulled apart by life, like the way you would crack open a living creature. They think that they are safe from the world as they walk around in this hard shell that they’ve created over time, but then the unexpected happens. You get thrown in hot water and then life pulls apart your arms and legs and breaks open your insides. No one goes through life without eventually showing their insides to someone."
"You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control."
