“…She kissed me like she was summer and I was the wind and I felt my heart pound like a fire alarm and when I broke apart from her, words tumbled from her lips while she to explain herself but I couldn’t handle the space between us any longer, I couldn’t, I put my hands all over her body as if she was water and I was lost in the desert, I scrambled for my sanity in the folds of her skin, I clutched her with desperate fingers that skittered across her zippers and shook whenever another layer peeled off her clothing and I brought my lips against every square inch I had been holding myself back from discovering and found out kissing her was like holding onto a lightning bolt I mean goddamn she burned out every bad thought that was boiling inside of me and she rewrote the way my atoms were colliding and our lies lay in the shadows of the dresses at our feet and I could not get over the way the light hit her everything as if she was a goddess and I was in her keep and god you don’t know love until you finally get to hold onto the person who had been less than six feet from you but still so far away, you don’t know love until for the first time you get to kiss a girl you accidentally fell for the minute you set eyes on her.”— R.I.D: Excerpts from My Dreams (via inkskinned)
i wonder what it’s like to like date someone and know their family and go over their house whenever you want and sleep over whenever you want and what it’s like to have their family absolutely love you as if you were their own and just yeah what’s that like.
“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”—Harvey Milk (via thatkindofwoman)
“Don’t tell me that you love me, because anyone can tell me that. Tell me that I make you tear up with anger and frustration, but at the end of the day you still want to lay down next to me, put your arms around me, and sleep.”—(via carissaaaaaaaaa)
We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.
