I do not need someone to complete me
but if you wanted to
we could walk next to each other
into whatever is coming next.
The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it’s only intangibles, ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
—Chuck Palahniuk (via misswallflower)
One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.
—Beau Taplin, “The Awful Truth” (via oklacoma)
I’m tired of people saying that you can’t ‘save’ someone and the best thing you can do is be there for them. If a person’s words can kill someone then a person’s words can save someone. Your words and your actions have more power than you think and you never know what could be keeping someone alive.

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow , for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

The reason for my existence.
