“For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
Bette Howland (via wordsthat-speak)

“Hate is the closest thing to love. I don’t want my little dumb things to become things that you hate about me. I don’t want you to hate the fact that I never cleaned my room, even though you said you didn’t mind. I don’t want you to hate how I would kiss you annoyingly and blow into your mouth, even though you said you didn’t mind. I don’t want you to hate how all we did was snuggle and lay in bed, even though you didn’t mind. I don’t want you to hate that fact that you always bought me lunch and dinner, even though you said you didn’t mind that I couldn’t pay you back. I want you to keep our memories happy, I don’t want them to annoy you. I don’t want your love to turn into hate.”

“I hope that someday someone loves me as much as I loved you.”
“And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older and you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.”

I’m not going to be the girl you marry.
I’ll be the memory you have when you propose to her. As you slide that ring on her finger you’ll think about that time we got dressed in our swankiest threads and had a horrible time at that party so we came back home and sat in an empty bath tub drinking whiskey outta the bottle talking about our childhood dreams.
I’m not going to be the girl you marry. I’ll be that memory whenever you and her get in an argument. you’ll recall our first fight and the endless glares and icy tones. Repetition of words like RESPECT and WHY rung through the stillness of the air. We almost ended that night. Thankfully you stopped me from walking out of that door.
I’m not going to be the girl you marry. I’ll be that memory when you have your first child. When you and your wife are picking out names you’ll remember our talk about our future. Our apartment layout and first pet. A dog named Pascal because I’m allergic to cats.
I’m not going to be the girl you marry. I’ll be the girl you fall for when you are too young to understand what falling really is. You’ll fuck up and lose me. You won’t realize it until a while later. But when you do, you’ll think about me everyday. Forever.
you’ll miss me- jlw (via bugundythoughts)
