Favorite Quote:
Robert Pattinson: “If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads"

Outside there is sun
that warms me.
Inside there is a storm
that kills me.
And I don't let anyone
in on my secret.
The truth hides behind
my eyes and heart.
And no on tries
to unlock it anyway.
They don't care
and it frightens me.
What if I wind up
alone for eternity?
All my dreams shattered
and I collapse in on
myself with no
chance of survival.
Is that what they
want from me?
I'm not worthy,
I'm not good enough
and I know they
want me to fail.
That's why I'll
pick me head up,
smile around.
The sun will shine
and the storm will grow
but it's up to me
on which road to follow.

When I feel sad I write about depressing things, but now I'm trying out positivity.
