A chance encounter.
shadow-writer: “Tell me something about yourself.” The way your lashes make shadows on your irises makes it hard for me to breathe. I would make your mouth my life’s work if given the chance. Nose rings are my kryptonite. You smell like the rest of my life. “I’m afraid of butterflies.”
There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. Their place...– Sara Zarr, Sweethearts (via shadow-writer)
Shadow Writer: Growing Up. →
shadow-writer: I won’t lie, the guy is impeccable. Crisp and creased and Crest White Stripped for days. He’s got a perpetual three day stubble and a dimple in his right cheek that plays hide and seek when he talks. He calls me gorgeous like it’s my name, has biceps that rival the density of a cypress tree,…
shadow-writer: I don’t think about you much anymore. I don’t think about air either, but I need it to breathe.
whisperedverse: My problem is that I see beauty everywhere, and am defenseless against it; that I fall in love too easily, and too deeply; and, that I do so all the time.
whisperedverse: You are a thing of beauty. You are cherished. Yet, I shall not hold you out as a sacred thing; like some golden, bejeweled chalice rescued from antiquity. Never. I have no care for pretty, useless things. I will fill you, and I will drink deeply from you. The world will know that you are mine by the stains of my fingertips, the marks of my teeth, and the pride with which you...

kwiznos: I tumbled across the room on fairy dust and caffeine. I spilt my heart in your hand, for a few seconds, but the blood and reality frightened, you more than me but I let you keep it. Wrapped the empty hole in my chest, bid adieu with my pinky up and confetti in my glass drinking, so as…
Charlie: Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?
Bill: We accept the love we think we deserve.
theowl-withthewhitestripes: My brain melted Out of my ears and nose Slowly dripping Down my face To the ground In a sort of rhythmic pattern The heat Entered through my eyes As jealousy As a burning self esteem Meaning to bake But causing to melt Melting any Sort of control Melting any Sort of good intention Melting the shield That kept me From doing anything Against common...

eating-poetry: Do you remember when we met in Gomorrah? When you were still beardless, and I would oil my hair in the lamp light before seeing you, when we were young, and blushed with youth like bruised fruit. Did we care then what our neighbors did in the dark? When our first daughter was born on the…

whenforeverisalie: I could get used to it— This absence, This not-quite-here, This not-quite-there. I could get used to The way a voice Can become a body, The way a body Can become memory. I can get used to Staring out of windows, Sipping coffee alone, Could get used to Midnight walks, Could get used to Adele on repeat, Could get used to Wondering where you are, If you think of me— Lord...

puckerupchump: It’s not fair for me to hide my dreams and hopes and goals, to act as if my life is “whatever” and just go with the flow of the sea of women, drowning their aspirations just for the impression of a man to look at us and say “shiiiid me too.” For a man to believe we don’t take our lives seriously…

thecolorsofmymind: Sometimes I think it’s best to just step back and reevaluate the people that you allow in your life. It’s disheartening to discover that there are those you have lowered your walls for, those you have allowed yourself to get close to, aren’t the people they portray themselves as. They say…

tristamateer: Forgive me; I am young. I do not yet understand the way wanting is intensified by absence, but I do— I do understand the way I am intensified by you. “Understand” is perhaps the wrong word because I am not familiar with its reasoning or its inner workings, but I know it. I feel it. Nothing matters but you. You are the card in my spokes, clicking out a beat I could never...
