I'll Take Two Bags of Bones, Please

You starved me of my childhood
And ate my peace of mind

Strangeness is a necessary ingredient in beauty.

—Charles Baudelaire (via viviling)

How dare you
fall in love
with someone so human?
Frail and mortal,
skin and bones
are no match for the world.
A man
is no more than a man
no matter what love he created.

Michelle K., I Am So Sorry He Left. (via michellekpoems)

Wild, reckless and passionate love may electrify your soul, but at the end of it all, it can leave you feeling the same way as a heroin addict; exhausted and always looking for your next fix.

—(via viviling)

There is no hate such as that born out of love betrayed- and my brain screamed out for revenge.

—V.C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic (via viviling)

I existed in a world that never is - the prison of the mind.

—Gene Tierney (via viviling)

Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

—Ernest Hemingway (via observando)

You are not too old for fairy tales but you should not be stupid either to forget that this is reality you’re dealing with.

michellekpoems:

If I see one more post romanticizing mental illness I’m going to scream. 

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.

—Leo Tolstoy (via observando)

And it has been
one hell
of a year.
I have worn
the seasons
under my sleeves,
on my thighs,
running down my cheeks.
This is what
surviving
looks like, my dear.

Michelle K., It Has Been One Hell of a Year. (via michellekpoems)

No, I am not bitter, I am not hateful, and I am not unforgiving. I just don’t like you.

At this moment, there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, that war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. 6 billion people in the world. 6 billion souls. And sometimes, all you need is one.
