"I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you."
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince (via hplyrikz)
"Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts."
Edgar Allan Poe (via thatkindofwoman)
These lips, I saved them for you
long before knowing who you were.
This skin, I kept it pure
for someday, I knew, I would be yours.
This heart, I locked it away,
safe and untouched, ready to be your home.
365 Lines for him, by M. L. L. (via eitear)
"The way to love someone is to lightly run your finger over that person’s soul until you find a crack, and then gently pour your love into that crack."
Keith Miller (via eitear)
"There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words, and still not understand you. And there are others who will understand — without you even speaking a word."
