“We’re all walking around with these glossy eyes. “I’m just tired,” we say. But you know what? It’s bullshit. Yes, we are tired, but it’s not all from lack of sleep. We are tired of waking up with nothing to look forward to, tired of going to bed exhausted after doing a million things we find no enjoyment in doing. We’re tired of the loneliness that presses down on us even though we’re surrounded by dozens of people. So why can’t we just say it? Humans are so afraid to look into each other’s eyes and say, “I am unhappy, I am broken, I am hopeless and fallible.” We’ve been conditioned to associate pain with weakness, sadness with coldness, loneliness with unworthiness, difference with disease, as if these feelings are contagious, as if ambivalence is something not to be felt but to be feared. Well, I say screw all of that. Screw forced smiles and polite handshakes and I’m fine, thank yous. Screw the fear of crying in a public place, screw the fake chipper voice, screw the lies that we spit out to cover up our problems. We are humans. We are meant to feel. To feel everything and to feel it all openly. We are not metal – we are flesh and bone. Our boiled blood courses through our cold, clammy hands. We are intricate and beautiful and we should never hide our human parts, because if we do, what’s left to show?”

We are humans

A lack of color
January 22, 2011
Do you even wonder? I mean about us, what happened? It was almost like our relationship was a piece of paper crumbled up and thrown away; forgotten. What might have happened if we didn’t throw it away? Maybe we would still be together or maybe not. Or maybe secretly we haven’t thrown it away yet. We’re saving it because we’re hoping someday we can pull it out of our pockets and rekindle what we once had. Or maybe it’s not even that we want it back, maybe it’s that we don’t want to lose what we had, but at the same time, we know it’s already lost. I wonder that a lot, and I wonder if you wonder sometimes too.
If you don’t like me, remember that its mind over matter.
I don’t mind and you don’t matter.
– Dr. Suess
Unplanned moments are always better than planned ones.
Someday maybe somebody will love me like I need, someday I won’t have to prove cause somebody will see. But until then I’ll do just fine on my own.
She won’t call you. You have to call her. She won’t come talk to you, you should go talk to her. She’s not going to let you act stupid and pretend she likes it. You should just be around her. When you’re with a group of friends, she isn’ t going to run into your arms no matter how much she wants to. You need to come up behind her and wrap you arms around her. and let her friends get jealous. She loves you more than you can imagine, no matter how much she doesn’t show it. But you boy, you need to show her how much you love her so she isn’t afraid to show it back.
I’m a straight-forward kinda girl. If you ask me what I’m thinking I’ll tell you, no sugar coating because that’s not what life is about. It’s about dealing with the pain that comes along, so if you are going to tell me how you feel, don’t lie. If I ask you something, I want to know the truth, not the lie.
I’ve learned that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. And that you don’t know how much you love a persons company until they’re no longer around.
You drive me crazy

“Oh, our lives are separate roads. We’ve picked our separate ways, but this love I’ve found reminds me every day that I still believe in you. I still have faith. I have faith that you’ll find your way and realize your mistakes, cause I can’t handle another night alone. And so I’m trying to find words to convince you to stay. Trying to pick myself up, but you’re getting away. I keep falling down, the words won’t come out. My tongue twists in circles, keeps them trapped in my mouth. But I need the ocean or its sand. Or the high that I felt when you first held my hand. And honey, I just can’t feel right alone. Is there hope for this? Cause it’s you that I miss. And I can’t handle another night alone.”
