If two people in love grow closer to God as individuals, they’ll grow closer to each other simply by striving to reach the same destination. (via faith-and-logic)

Wouldn’t we be quite the pair?—you with your bad heart, me with my bad head. Together, though, we might have something worthwhile. a letter from Zelda Fitzgerald to her husband F. Scott Fitzgerald. (via tre-cherous)

Here we are, baby, in the car
out front of your first big mistake.
I know it looks terrifying. I can see your
white knuckle grip on the door handle,
but please, darling girl, be brave.

In this parking lot, there are
cement poles marked with numbers
and a feeling of cold. In the center,
here you are, metallic and
breakable and so beautiful.

This is where you forget about me,
at least for a little while.
This is where I tell you that it is okay.

On your way out, tuck this taste you will learn to know so well
under your tongue;
the taste of bathroom corners
and lipstick licked out from between your teeth
and every wrong decision.

Remember: the sour, the asphalt salt against roof of mouth,
let it teach you to chew, to swallow.
Remember: it’s okay if he doesn’t love you. It’s okay if
his lips don’t curl around your syllables the right way.
You are sacred in every flavour and he is not hungry.

This is where I ball my fists and place them beside
your own on the dashboard and unlearn the years
of forgetting what it meant to be this fragile.
This is where I say I will hold you,
where I remind you that the metal in your mouth
should always be your own.

This is where I tell you that it will feel like dying.
This is where I tell you that it isn’t.
This is where you open the door and I call after you
to remind you that I’ve done this, too,
so make your mistakes.
Look back, if you have to.

Here, the headlights will stay on for you.
Here, the passenger’s seat will wait.
Here, home is a highway exit away,
and I will be there. I will stay.

We are more than the worst thing that’s ever happened to us. All of us need to stop apologizing for having been to hell and come back breathing. Clementine Von Radics, Broken (via perfect)

watching my mother weep in pastel tones, stretch her hair and her heart for men and God who , it would seem, placed far too much glory on appearance and sacrifice. Te’ V. Smith Permission To Speak (via mammi-wata)

Let us pray.
For your blessed bones.
For your sacred hands.
May you learn to love what is holy in you.
May you learn to love what is not. Caitlyn Siehl, excerpt from A Prayer (via alonesomes)

The devil is real. And he’s not a little red man with horns and a tail. He can be beautiful. ‘Cause he’s a fallen angel, and he used to be God’s favorite.

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control. Elizabeth Gilbert (via basedjane)

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving. Kim McMillen (via soundsdivine)
