we were never really dating, we were never really not dating. we didn’t know. no one knew. all you’d know for sure is that you’d always find one of us next to the other, even if we weren’t getting along. - mindy kaling (x)

“But the Bible says…”


"When he says
He doesn’t love you anymore,
Roll your shoulders back
And look him in the eye
Even when it feels like your ribs
Are breaking inward, like spider legs.
When he digs up old aches
That he swore he forgave you for,
And ask him why he didn’t leave you sooner.
Ignore the way the words feel like sandpaper
Running all the way up your throat to your mouth.
When he blames you
For mistakes that wear his face,
Do not scream.
Do not cry.
Tell him that there are boys
Who would be proud to say they’d loved you.
Tell him that in two years
You won’t even remember his name
And don’t let him see the way you can taste your own lie.
When he leaves
Ignore the howling in your blood
And do not get up after him.
Not even to lock the door.
Do not, do not
Do not.
Smell his shirts when you box them up
To give them back.
Not one.
Swear off dating when you realize
You’re chasing ghosts that wear his smile.
It’s okay to cry over him.
It’s even okay to forgive him.
But do not go back to him.
If he did not know how to love you the first time,
He won’t know how to do it the next."
How To Pretend It Doesn’t Hurt, by Ashe Vernon   (via morozovaaleksander)
"Sometimes I look at you and I’m just speechless. You think there is something wrong because I’m not speaking, but I’m actually just taking it all in. The reality that I may be lucky enough to call you mine for the rest of my life. Cause you’re easily the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen and your mind is just as beautiful. You have an understanding of life that I wished everyone would have. You look at me and worry that something is wrong because I’m not speaking. But I’m looking at you and smiling because you’re the most god damn gorgeous being to touch this planet and you don’t even realize it."
