"Every moment is a poem if you hold it right."
"There is nothing rational about love. Love stutters when it gets nervous, love trips over its own shoelaces. Love is clumsy, and my heart refuses to wear a helmet."
Rudy Francisco, excerpt from “Scars/To the New Boyfriend” (via avvfvl)
"One day I woke up
and we no longer spoke
the same language.
I haven’t heard from you since."
"The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all."
"A little talent is a good thing to have if you want to be a writer. But the only real requirement is the ability to remember every scar."
"So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you."
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via avvfvl)
"Not all love is gentle. Sometimes it’s gritty and dirty and possessive, sometimes it’s not supposed to be careful or soft at all. Sometimes it feels like teeth."
"When you love something, you don’t threaten it. You don’t punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first."
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
