my favorite thing about you is your smell
you smell like
a little more
human than the rest of us

nothing is safer
than the sound of you
reading out loud to me

the perfect date

i need someone
who knows struggle
as well as i do
willing to hold my feet in their lap
on days it is too difficult to stand
the type of person who gives
exactly what i need
before i even know i need it
the type of lover who hears me
even when i do not speak
is the type of understanding
i demand

the type of lover i need

i am a museum full of art
but you had your eyes shut

art and black image emma watson and black and white image

i had to leave
i was tired of
allowing you to
make me feel
anything less
than whole

to be
to be

glitter, hands, and black and white image beautiful, dress, and hair image

accept yourself
as you were designed

pink, wallpaper, and water image beautiful, boy, and fashion image

the world
gives you
so much pain
and here you are
making gold out of it

there is nothing purer than that

art, love, and earth image art, painting, and drawing image

how you love yourself is
how you teach others
to love you

art, painting, and aesthetic image hair, aesthetic, and tumblr image

most importantly love
like it's the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page
where you're sitting
your degree
your job
the money
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them

city, theme, and christmas image quotes, replace, and text image

your art
is not about how many people
like your work
is about
if your heart likes your work
if your soul likes your work
it's about how honest
you are with yourself
and you
must never
trade honesty
for relatability

to all you young poets

coffee, art, and drawing image art, galaxy, and painting image

if the hurt comes
so will the happiness

be patient
