gottfried: nihilnoetia: Human life requires three basic necessities: food, shelter and love. Only when all three are guaranteed can civilization flourish. But civilization is gone now, and he knows not where. He doesn’t know if they reached too high and burned their hands on the stars or if all has yet to begin, and the good lord in heaven created all the wide wild of the world and simply...
nothing even matters
52hearts: sometimes i feel like there are still creases in my skin from that one time i let your skin, your bones, your limbs blanket over me as we slept so deeply ignoring our heavy hearts, while giving into our heavy eyelids and one temporary moment of happiness. was this a dream, i sometimes wonder when thinking back — it seemed so surreal, like why can’t i remember your touch, but i can...

bblove: [up late, breathing into the phone, like when i hid in my closet in high school, talking to boys all night, i know you like this one best, he says, remembering the way i held his wrist like taking a pulse. he tells me about the years nothing went right, everything split apart, a friend who was killed in an airplane crash, a lost job, ODing in a Vegas hospital, sleeping in a Uhual with...

beautifulordinaire: This is the ordinary. This is where we stretch ourselves to do the things we are most secretly afraid of. We sit on my couch and I press my face close, so close that his smell floods my senses. His skin smells like fresh air and a long nights sleep. The sunlight reflects off the snow and floods the room with an unbelievable amount of brightness. I close my eyes and feel...

givesmehope: LOVEgivesmehope: At 3AM wednesday, i went down to the kitchen to wash my midnight snack dishes when i stumbled upon my 14-yr-old brother with a bag of Hershey’s kisses. As i got closer, i saw that he was replacing the paper sticking out of the wrapper on the candy kisses w/ strips where he printed out lyrics to give to his GF the next day. School starts at 7AM.

this is how i feel
shany: 52hearts: (how you make me feel) it’s fireworks, explosions, erupted volcanoes with hot hot lava pouring out, so much it’s hard to contain and i can’t explain it any other way. That’s the chemistry … and I’m sure that hasn’t changed or gone away. It has always been a dangerous thing for us. Even though you still melt me on the spot, I feel so differently about you and the situation...

captainolya: I’ve always had a tendency of being self indulgent, and wallowing in my misery. I never used to feel sorry for myself, not this visibly anyway. People ask how I am, and I’m always fine fine fine, it is so easy to lie, and now I’m just so sick of being fine, I’m sick of holding things together for everyone else. I exist in the land of bereavement, the land of sorrow and grief, and...

mhight: I don’t believe in casual sex. it’s not that I am opposed to it exactly, it’s just that—in my own experience—no such thing exists. If it’s not emotional, I’m not interested. For me, sex without feeling is an empty ritual, a cold, mechanical exchange that leaves me lonely and depressed. Given the choice between that and solitude, I prefer to be alone. Even the phrase “casual sex” has a...
