Favorite Quote:
In the deepest hour of the night, confess to yourself that you would die if you were forbidden to write. And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself, must I write? -Rainer Maria Rilke


When he looks at me,
smiles,
and calls my name
doesn't mean I have to do the same.

Maybe he's not what you think,
maybe he's not that great.
But he can't be so bad
if all he wants is a date.

To think you're too late
just because his mother can't wait
to be shown a ring,
doesn't mean that's where you need to aim.

Because doesn't being in love and being scared feel the same?
