Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane (via observando)

I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.

Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 4: Season of Mists (via hqlines)

I think, well, I’ve had a shit of a life, all things considered. It wasn’t fair. Everyone I’ve ever loved is dead, and my leg hurts all the bloody time… But I think, any God that can do sunsets like that, a different one every night… ‘Strewth, well, you’ve got to respect the old bastard, haven’t you?

Neil Gaiman, The Sandman (via wordsnquotes)

(via bobspacedout)

Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.

It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.

Frank Ocean (Bad Religion)

This unrequited love, to me it’s nothing but a one-man cult; And cyanide in my styrofoam cup. I could never make him love me. Never make him love me.

Now I realize everything. How did I manage to live in such illusions. I’m hurt inside, I just have to soften the pain. Slowly but surely, it will happen. Courage little heart, your shattered pieces will mend.

(via pah11)

Note to self:
Do.
Not.
Fall.
In.
Love.
Note to self:
Do not fall.
Note to self:
do not, do not, do not.
Note to self, note to self, note to..
Oh.
Those eyes..
That smile..
Note to self:
He’s the one. Don’t let him go.
He’s the one. Of this, I’m sure.
Note to self:
Now he’s gone.
You must move on.
Note to self:
What did I fucking tell you in the first place?
Note to self:
DO. NOT. FALL.

Death does not concern me
I’ve seen it all too often come
It has come for all those I loved
It has come and closed the door
Death does not concern me
For there is nothing I can do
It is the end of all
We all will fall
For what we call our doom
Death does not concern me
For it does not warn it’s here
It takes the one its ready for
And closes another door

Count the blessings not the scars…

Now I think I know you are gone for good. Whatever reason I was holding on can be let go. I have to remind myself every day that there must be someone still to come. I’ve done just fine on my own the last six years since we separated. I’ve got to remain open to whatever is yet to come. What will come? I’ve got to keep going. I can’t wallow in this feeling for long or it may consume me. Every time I feel I’ve moved on I’m reminded that I cannot forget. I can go on. The future holds greater things, brighter days, deeper love. I’ve got to go on.
