Favorite Quote:
These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite.
Therefore love moderately.


They tell me that I
Should let him go,
That the pain will die,
But they don’t know.

I know what happy is;
It’s him all night, all day.
I know what misery looks like;
It’s him walking away.

Why should I listen to them?
It’s not him they love.
I’ll stick beside him,
Below the earth or above.

So try to pull me
Away from my heart,
But surgery may be required,
And it’ll surely tear me apart.


The author's comments:
There's this boy I love with everything inside of me. Everyone tells me that he's not good enough for me. Even HE thinks he's not good enough for me. But he makes me so ridiculously happy, and I wish everyone would just accept that that's good enough for me. I just wish it was good enough for them.
