Road to Nowhere, Fast

Forgiving isn’t something you do for someone else. It’s something you do for yourself. It’s saying, ‘You’re not important enough to have a stranglehold on me.’ It’s saying, ‘You don’t get to trap me in the past. I am worthy of a future.

— Jodi Picoult, The Storyteller (via a-thousand-words)

"why are these scientists talking about pluto when they should be curing ebola" because they’re astrophysicists not molecular engineers or infectious disease specialists you’re getting mad at the wrong people

I love when you fall asleep before me. I love listening as your laughter fades slowly to muffled agreements. how your first heavy exhale lets me know that you have surrendered your body to the night. that’s when I decide to surrender as well. my body grows heavy as if every inch of me is becoming slowly paralyzed, my thoughts being the only thing left in my control. the shell you left with me so that your mind can venture, has shown no objection to the way my head rested perfectly between your jaw and shoulder. as I let myself melt into you deeper I can’t help but wonder if you’ve thought about the number of times water from my eyes has drenched this very spot since we first met on the 26th of August. maybe you remember every drop, maybe you have a firm number to throw back at me as if you knew some day I would rhetorically toss the question your way. or maybe you haven’t kept track at all. my wet eyes have never caused you to flinch. I am thinking of how wonderfully unpredictable you are as you toss your right arm across me and pull me in closer. the timing makes the corners of my lips turn upward and I silently laugh to myself thinking somehow you knew you were consuming my mind. I adjust my body to fit yours like a puzzle -how flawlessly we are intertwined- and kiss your cheek one last time before joining you in dreamland. as I slip slowly away from the world, thoughts of your beautiful heart echo in my mind like the fading end of a song. I love when you fall asleep before me because I fall more for you. View Larger

I feel like I’ve known you for so much longer than I have and it’s just unfathomable to me how I can feel this close to you and so deeply about you only being with you for two weeks. two fucking weeks and I’m already heels over head for you. god damn I don’t know which one of my guardian angels is…
