"The beginning of love is to let the one we love be perfectly themselves, not twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." - Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island
I love unmade beds. I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest in that moment. I love the look in peoples eyes when they realise they're in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up. I love .
I was so undeserving and yet you were so relentless I pushed - you pulled I wept - you embraced I bled - you repaired I stopped - you smiled I was a disaster the worst of its kind and yet you still had the audacity to let me know that I was beautiful

We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known. We may go there through our imaginations and the written word.
