"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
"Love, I have found, is the most misunderstood word in the English language. We take it’s definition and give it boundaries to stay within and yet love grows most in the places where it seems most prohibited or impossible. The human culture is obsessed with defining and categorizing things that we forget that somethings just are. And still we come up with rules, theories, and conclusions to try to understand something that deep down we all know cannot be understood. Because love is not a whisper, an echo, or a kind word spoken but a whisper, an echo, AND a kind word spoken. It took me a long time to realize that, and through time I have come to grasp that love just is. It can be anything and it can be found in anyone. It is not just one feeling but a circuit and series of multiple emotions. If we took the time to slow down our lives and to stop searching for love we can find it surrounding the atmosphere like air. It’s in the arms of a mother, the smile of a stranger, and in the forgiveness of a sinner. No matter how dark and how twisted this world may become we can still find hope in the sense that love never dies and that it swims in and consumes the hearts of each soul on this planet."

"I never realized what it felt like to surrender. I was built rough around the edges & with a switch blade attitude. I had a sweet tooth for solitude. With the heart of a gypsy, surrendering was something of the unknown. But you, you made me give in. And I, I gladly surrendered to you. You destroyed anything & everything that would make me hold myself back from you. I did more than just crash, I collided. Head on into you. The same way the first atoms did when our universe was created all those years ago.
I’m in my own world,
when I’m with you."
"My mistake was that I got attached. I let you in, I told you my deepest darkest secrets, I trusted you with everything that even I am afraid to tell myself. You were the first one that made me the best me that I could be. But I guess what we had for one another never meant a thing because things change and people give up too easily. You have emotionally drained me in ways that I could of never imagined myself being."
