"She was desperate and she was choosy at the same time and, in a way, beautiful, but she didn’t have quite enough going for her to become what she imagined herself to be."
Charles Bukowski, Factotum
Anonymous asked: who do you love?
That’s gonna be a big list and a lot of those names will be fictional characters or inanimate objects. So maybe another time I’ll elaborate.
This is why EYE love you.
"I gave you things I wasn’t sure I even had."
I don’t feel like I belong anywhere until I am with you
I miss you even while you’re touching my face
our bodies could be pressed tightly in one messy knot
it would still never feel like I’m close enough
I know it isn’t fair for me to feel an ounce of anything
when I hear you sing about who you loved before
but knowing her air was once all you wanted to breathe
is entirely enough to suffocate me
I know you don’t believe in coincidence
but I hope you believe in this
I’m terrified for the day I’m forced to watch you walk away
all that I have now is all I’ve ever wanted
there are places that aren’t here that I would like to try
but you are all I need to build my life
