I don’t know what to say to you except that it tore the heart out of my body saying goodbye to you.
You’re not a kid anymore. You have the right to choose your own life. You can start again. If you want a cat, all you have to do is choose a life in which you can have a cat. It’s simple. It’s your right.
Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.

“People always say that it hurts at night and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken. But sometimes it’s 9am on a Tuesday morning and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up. And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss him so much you don’t know what to do with your hands.”
— Rosie Scanlan, “On Missing Them”
Cautiously, I allowed myself to feel good at times. I found moments of peace in cheap rooms just staring at the knobs of some dresser or listening to the rain in the dark. The less I needed, the better I felt.
“It’s horrible when your heart is somewhere your body is not.”
…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?
“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.”
― Richard Siken
AHHHeii I woke up to 3000 likes on my facebook page!!! I can’t believe our little creature family has grown into this beautiful community and every single one of you makes me wanna be a better songwriter, writer and most of all person every single day. Ever since I started this page I’ve said that this is not about me, this is about us. We’re doing this together and I still mean this with all my heart. I’m nothing without you. So thank you for being who you are and for enabling me to live a life I’m excited about. You make my world a better place. Now I’m gonna celebrate with coffee in a snow filled Berlin :) Here’s to dreaming a little bigger, reaching a little higher, working a little harder. I love you all to the moon and back <3
I woke up in the morning and I didn’t want anything, didn’t do anything, couldn’t do it anyway, just lay there listening to the blood rush through me and it never made any sense, anything.
