"Everyone needs a place. It shouldn’t be inside of someone else."
— Richard Siken, from "Detail of the Woods" (via eveofartifice)

for the kind of love,
that forces me to prove
my worth"

What was it like to lose him?” Asked Sorrow.
There was a long pause before I responded:

It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to
me— said all at once.

"I’d cut my soul into a million different pieces just to form a constellation to light your way home. I’d write love poems to the parts of yourself you can’t stand. I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark."
—  Andrea Gibson 
"you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love."
 Warsan Shire, “for women who are ‘difficult’ to love” (via feellng)
"Standing all alone
I suddenly realized that
I can still stand tall."
