when an artist wants to show you their art
or a writer wants you to read what they’ve written
it’s quite often an expression of trust
because a poem or a story or a painting are often things that come from the heart
little pieces of the artists themselves
and if they’re willing to share it with you
you should appreciate it
Everyone needs to hear someone say, “Nobody else will do. It has to be you,” sometime in their lives, even if it only happens once. Just once is enough. As long as you can feel sure those words were sincere, you can live through anything, no matter how painful.
it is nice, some nights, to stay up late
write some new lines
and read over some old ones.
an old little snippet just for you wonderful folks
“She had never been brave enough, or insistent enough, or selfish enough to put her own wants before someone else’s. Regardless of why, it never got her very far. But she just didn’t think it was right. What made her so special? Why did she deserve happiness more then anyone else? She could never come up with an answer to this question, and had therefore resolved that she didn’t. She didn’t deserve it more. There was absolutely no reason for her to break up someone else’s happy ending on account of her own. Never mind two people’s endings. She definitely was not special enough for that.”
sleep well, beautiful people.
the truth is, everyone is going to let you down. what you need to decide is who’s worth suffering for.
