Being vulnerable is what makes you human. I don’t think that you should be scared of how much love you can give and whether he will reciprocate. It is a selfless and beautiful thing you are doing. I guess the real question is whether you are ready for this? Will you regret not telling him you care in a few years time? Tbh, if he is the type of person that can see you bare your soul and not love you for how afraid and brave you were in doing so, he is not the right person for you. I really hope this works out for you.

Sometimes I look at people and make myself try and feel them as more than just a random person walking by. I imagine how deeply they’ve fallen in love, or how much heartbreak they’ve all been through.

“You found me, mouth like a pomegranate
picking flowers in my mother’s field.
an invitation of sorts. 
You took it as one and spent five months
thinking about slipping your fingers into my mouth.
I think the Earth changed the day we met,
It had been waiting for you to bare your teeth
and swallow me whole
It had been waiting for the cup of your palm
around my neck except you didn’t have to beg baby
you said “let me show you what flowers look like
from the earth up.” 
and I said “yes, please. Show me your flowers,
show me your dead, show me your fingers.” 
My mother warned me about gods like you,
hungry, greedy gods like you 
all desire and no thought
all want and no logic
I was the same. 
I skipped with you into hell
Artemis knows dragged, I know this:
I held my arms outwards and let you tie them
so softly that I asked what they were made of
and you said “prayers.” 
We kissed at the entrance, open-mouthed
furious kisses
we kissed like we were starving, 
kissed like the dead were crawling out of hell
I decorated your dark with flowers
and sat on your lap and fed you petals.
It makes me burn when they say
“Hades stole Persephone.”

and I tell them “No. 
I stole him.”

Ferguson -2014

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.

Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.

Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening

This looks like a goddamn movie, it shouldn’t be happening
