"I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well."
Diane Ackerman (via misswallflower)
"I hope you fall in love and I hope it kicks your ass, the first time. I hope you fall in love again and I hope it feels like swimming in molasses. I hope you never get the sweet out from underneath your fingernails. I hope you open up like a sky."
Caitlyn Siehl, excerpt from “So You’re All Alone” (via thatkindofwoman)
"I can be someone’s and still be my own."
Shel Silverstein (via thatkindofwoman)
But who can say there isn’t poetry in falling asleep to the even rise and fall of the one you love breathing in and out in the moments after sleep crawls in. That there isn’t magic in hearing that very sound every night for the rest of your days.
