Favorite Quote:
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." Pride and Prejudice


The heat from my tears,
Caressing my cheek with utmost care,
Is the closest thing I've had;
To the warmth of love.

The way my heart pounds against my ribcage,
When anxiety draws near,
Is the closest thing I've had;
To the flutters of adoration.

The emptiness that tears at my soul,
Slowly dragging its nails across the underside of my skin,
Is the closest thing I've had;
To the longing of someone.

Anyone.
