My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you. Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness. Let it kill you and let it devour your remains. For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.

Charles Bukowski (via xrainydaywoman)

There’s a bluebird in my heart that
Wants to get out
But I’m too clever, I only let him out
At night sometimes
When everybody’s asleep.

Bluebird, Charles Bukowski (via supermodelgif)

When someone we love hurts us, if we still love them, we deal with it and we move on.

We can’t prevent what we can’t predict.

Home is wherever I’m with you.

People in life come and go, people adapt and flex, but there’s something to be said for consistency. Connecting with another person on a level of true friendship is one of the most beautiful things life has to offer: knowing that you can unabashedly be yourself and state your beliefs without fear of rejection or ridicule; knowing that someone would do anything to help you grow, but would never dream of changing you; knowing that no amount of space or time can create distance between you.

The best friendships interact on a symbiotic, soul to soul level with a simple understanding. I’ll heal you because we are cuts from the same cloth and when someone tears you apart, when you’re mere shreds of the person you used to be, I’ll sew you up at the seams. The best friendships leave you comfortable enough to share your dreams, but so content in your blissful reality that you never want to go to sleep.

Within the first seven seconds of meeting someone, a person forms an impression. While physical presence is transient, mental and emotional presences hold impact and the only way to change an impression is with time and communication. Companionship, weaving together the cloths with strands of stories and laughter and memories, takes effort to construct. Vulnerability is daunting, but the perfect possibility of woven spirits is enough to make it worthwhile.

Home doesn’t lie between walls, flooring and plumbing. Home lies in the undoubted ability to rehabilitate. Everyone deserves a friendship that makes them feel like they’re coming home.
