"I don’t believe in hatred anymore.
I hate to think of how it felt before
When anger overwhelms your very soul
It’s hard to realize you’ll ever know
Love like we do."
Edie Brickell (via observando)
For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green
I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know
But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door

All too well
And I know it’s long gone, And that magic’s not here no more, And I might be okay, But I’m not fine at all.
‘Cause there we are again on that little town street. You almost ran the red ‘cause you were looking over me. Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well.
Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red. You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bed And your mother’s telling stories about you on a tee ball team You tell me ‘bout your past, thinking your future was me.
And I know it’s long gone And there was nothing else I could do And I forget about you long enough To forget why I needed to…
‘Cause there we are again in the middle of the night. We dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator light Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah.
Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much, And maybe this thing was a masterpiece ‘til you tore it all up. Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.
Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise. So casually cruel in the name of being honest. I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here ‘Cause I remember it all, all, all… too well.
Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it I’d like to be my old self again, but I’m still trying to find it After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone.
"I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you."
Jeanette Winterson (via thelandlockedmariner)
Inspired by the many complaints i’ve received of older Lilo’s resemblance to Nani.
deaf people use sign language because actions speak louder than words
and all this time i thought it was because they couldn’t hear
