“I want you. I want your sleepy confused look when you wake up, and the smile that follows. I want to be the warmth that fills the space in your bed. I don’t want to share you.”—unknown (via swiftbeat)
“When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.”—Haruki Murakami (村上 春樹), “Sputnik Sweetheart” (via xu-an)
Rae:I hate that I'm the kind of person that is scared of everything. I never used to be like this. I used to be brave.
