"You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole."
Warsan Shire (via bonur)
"Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? Thats the real test."
Alain de Botton (via 99lions)
i get awkward when someone compliments me and idk what to say

"I have my mother’s mouth and my father’s eyes; on my face they are still together."

”I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after seeing them at their most vulnerable you wouldn’t be able to help falling in love with them.”
