“Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.”— Hunter S. Thompson
strong girls like you must be
the world’s loneliest creatures
your silences, their own wilderness
where the men
come with promises that they will be
the one that gets you to stay.
big-shouldered boys who will melt
their bones down into currency
and will want to conquer you but
you are the girl they chase
not because they actually want you
but to prove that they can catch you.
what they haven’t learned
are all the times you’ve broken your own heart
on their behalf, those clumsy hunters
who never know the right sequence of words
to do the job properly" -Safia Elhillo, what you said to me instead (via oddballsdontbounce)
"Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it."-
