    there is a hunger
    in your bones
    for a sleep
    that will eat
    every memory

    every early morning
    still tastes like a mistake
    that you were never supposed to
    be around
    to make

    your frantic fingers are
    less nimble-ballerina
    and more chewed
    skin and shakiness

    you are trying
    to hold on but
    your brain is rattling around
    in all of that emptiness

    you are supposed to be
    incredible student incredible lover incredibly
    perfect and never
    falling to bits

    but who would you be
    without all this goddamn

    You don’t have only one soul-mate.

    If you did,
    you would have married your best friend
    three years ago.
    She knows you
    better than her right hand,
    and she’ll listen to you cry
    from eight states away.

    You don’t have only one soul-mate,
    because people wake up different parts of you—
    parts you never even knew existed.

    The boy when you were 15
    taught you what it felt like
    to get caught kissing in a closet
    at the party you never should have been at
    in the first place,
    without his lips ever touching yours.

    When you were 18,
    a boy let you know what it’s like
    to have your heart lodged in your throat,
    because he’s moving 2,000 miles away,
    And he won’t tell you when he’ll be back.

    You wait until you’re 22
    to get attached again,
    and this time you feel it in every inch.
    It’s as if you got struck by lightning—
    the Lichtenberg figure crawls
    up your arms and across your back,
    like his hands on your skin
    while you laid in bed together,
    and you thought the thump of your heart
    was in time with his.

    You don’t have only one soul-mate;
    Instead, you have soul-mates,
    because your heart is huge
    and you have the room.

    team runs to the convenience store for late-night ben&jerry’s
    laughing so hard you pee yourself, or getting so drunk you pee yourself
    enjoying a sunday morning of greeting all the saturday night hook-ups as they leave
    extensively planning a weekend of day-drinking well in advance
    falling into your bar-star routine so easily its scary
    living with your best girl friends, and next to your best guy friends
    walking through campus and realizing how fucking beautiful everything is (people and buildings alike)

    cross-analyzing your favourite book with your other favourite book
    constantly being stimulated by ambitious and intelligent people (when they don’t drink, of course)
    being convinced by your housemates to go to the bar (even though you promised yourself you’d stay in)

    getting the cab to drop you off at pita pit for drunk shawarma fries
    popping and snorting and seeing your pupils dilate as the adrenaline rattles your bones
    being able to have sex with your boyfriend whenever (and wherever) you want
    realizing the people you live with may be the best people in the world
    talking to someone and realizing it’s totally hot being intelligent
    being in an environment where sex, drugs, and alcohol are equally as important as readings, grades, and your future career
    coming to terms with the fact that you’ve never in your life been as happy as now

    god, i love university

    "Every day that she spends with you is spent in sorrow for the day and in despair for tomorrow; thus, I, her yesterday, grow happier and more radiant in her memory. How wrong you are, on the other side, to think the past cannot be changed." - The Black City by Leonardo Alishan

    You ask them how they fell.

    It’s simple

    like breathing

    or a fond memory that isn’t so hard to recover.

    But what they describe

    is only in the past.

    So instead you ask them,

    Why are you still falling?

    They will look at you and wonder:

    What is it that makes them stay 

    despite it all?

    Some may doubt, linger, ponder

    but there are those, like you,

    who, without hesitation,

    just know.

    "She’s been dead for two years and that’s the shit I remember…wonderful stuff, you know, little things like that. Those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about. That’s what made her my wife. Oh, she had the goods on me too, she knew all my little peccadilloes. People call these things imperfections but they’re not, oh, that’s the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. You’re not perfect sport, and let me save you the suspense, this girl you met? She isn’t perfect, either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other." - Robin Williams as Sean Maguire, Good Will Hunting
