"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


Somehow I can't help but think
That I'm to blame for everything.
It's always something I did—
Something I wrote—
Something I said.
And somehow I can't help but know
That I'm the subject of their whispers.
It's something I wore—
Some way I acted—
Something wrong I said.

I'm sorry, I’m sorry.
Let me fix it. Give me another chance.
But please,
First give me this opportunity
To feel secure
In your arms.

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
