“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.”
— John Keating (via there-is-no-there-there)
“Fall in love with the sound of her voice, because that’s the first thing you’ll lose when she’s gone.”

I will not apologize for this, because it is not my fault.
It’s just that this body became a graveyard so long ago,
and there are so many lingering ghosts.
I still love you when your hands remind me too much of his,
when I can taste him on your mouth.
I still love you when I am sprawled across your sheets and then suddenly I am a child again and trembling.
I still love you because you are not him and you never will be,
but I am still me and I cannot run from these memories.
I cannot escape what he did to me.
Those nights cling to me like shadows;
six years old was far too young to be weighed down with that much darkness.
I still love you when the night is swallowing me whole.
I will still love you when it is dawn again.

“if he isn’t calling you then it’s okay to feel
this destroyed over a boy but remember
he did you a favor i know you think this is
the end but it is also the beginning it is also
cleaning up after yourself you can’t keep
crawling inside other people sooner or later
the heap of clothes at the foot of your bed
is going to stand up on its own and talk back
you can’t just wash your hair in the sink
forever when there are people with real
problems who still remember to recycle
and when did you become so soft? trying
so hard to look sexy in photos that you come
off as confused eating nothing but waffles
is not a diet even if there are blueberries
don’t ask just tell about the kinds of shocking
things you find under your nail beds your
mother warned you about pain that would be
there one day and then gone the next she
warned you about it all”
