“ I think I wanted it too much and you didn’t want it enough.
“ i miss you, still i hope you smiled today and while you’re getting swept up i hope you never forget what is most important i hope you remember that because it’s okay to have sad days, every night i pray that you’re not lost,
no longer in a deep, aching way,
but rather in the dull hum of my car radio
in the excitement and mystery and
passion of this confusing, intriguing,
heartbreaking, beautiful life,
it’s not about finding someone to complete
and write sappy poems about,
it’s not about listening to soft music on repeat
with your eyes closed,
wishing you were somewhere else
or someone else,
and it’s not about doing well on exams,
or traveling the world,
or always being artificial sunshine
instead of being real
and a number in the corner of a page
can’t give you lasting satisfaction,
and you can’t be everyone’s prince charming,
and while music stirs up something
so beautiful inside of us,
you can’t hide in your melancholy world
of D minor, forever
that you’re somehow finding your way,
i can’t speak these words to you directly,
i hope you know
i’ll always care.
i miss you, still
i hope you smiled today
and while you’re getting swept up
i hope you never forget what is most important
i hope you remember that
because it’s okay to have sad days,
every night i pray that you’re not lost,
“ I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.
“ The word lazy has an unpleasant connotation, doesn’t it? Because it’s humans measuring themselves against other humans based upon a flawed premise, and the flawed premise is: the more you DO, the more you’re WORTH. And that is the most flawed of all flawed premises.
“ Funny girls like you don’t get boyfriends. Funny girls like you get boys who are friends who want to date your boring pretty friends but also have you around to make them laugh.
