How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand…there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold.
J.R.R. Tolkien (via wordsthat-speak)
In time, the hurt began to fade and it was easier to just let it go. At least I thought it was. But in every boy I met in the next few years, I found myself looking for you, and when the feelings got too strong, I’d write you another letter. But I never sent them for fear of what I might find. By then, you’d gone on with your life and I didn’t want to think about you loving someone else. I wanted to remember us like we were that summer. I didn’t ever want to lose that.
The Notebook (Nicholas Sparks)
I seem to find your face in
everywhere I go.
I don’t understand this—
I’ve moved on completely.
But why does it seem
that I’ll always look for your face
in a crowded room?
I don’t miss you, but you really screwed me over. (a.g.m.)
One day you fall for this boy. And he touches you with his fingers. And he burns holes in your skin with his mouth. And it hurts when you look at him. And it hurts when you don’t. And it feels like someone’s cut you open with a jagged piece of glass.
