"My first love
was some insignificant boy
when it should have been
Michelle K., First Love. (via michellekpoems)


I need to be with someone who respects me enough to allow me to grow into the woman that I am destined to be, trusts me enough to give me the appropriate space, and knows how to love me hard and in a secure way


"Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be."

"For her you were either one of her closest friends or you were no friend at all. She had neither time nor energy for the casual acquaintanceship. She craved the hard lock: two minds, hearts, and souls as one, nothing unsaid, nothing untold, nothing unsung. If you didn’t meet her standards she didn’t hold it against you — she just dismissed you from her mind."

"For some reason, you will no longer be the person you believed you once were. You’ll detect slow and subtle shifts going on all around you, more importantly shifts in you. Worse, you’ll realize it’s always been shifting, like a shimmer of sorts, a vast shimmer, only dark like a room. But you won’t understand why or how."

"What indicates a person’s weak religion and fear of God, is that he seeks for an opinion that suits his desire."

"We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all."
Eleanor Roosevelt (via leslieseuffert)

"Sometimes, I feel like ripping apart my skin, and searching for a reason for why I feel this empty. Maybe my veins are tangled, or something is lodged in my ribcage. Because it feels like something inside of me is missing or broken."

"There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise."


I couldn’t even tell you

how many times

I’ve wanted to see myself

through your eyes.

And I often wonder if those

butterflies in your stomach

are still alive.

"and if you think I’m oppressed
what does that make you?
I have a piece of cloth
wrapped around my head
while you have society’s rules
on beauty wrapped in your head"
Suhur Omar
(part of the poem I performed yesterday with my friend)
