Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.

- Marc Hack (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Let love win: Only light can drive out darkness and only love can drive out hate. It can be so hard to find love in our hearts, to imagine peace, to practice compassion, to have faith in a benevolent universe after terrible things happen. But for as long as we hold on to anger and fear, we add to the darkness in our own hearts and in the world. Instead, we can let go of anger, fear and even grief through emotional processing, positive action, the practice of gratitude, and the search for kindness and compassion in our own hearts. We can only bring light when we bring love.

You found me, mouth like a pomegranate
picking flowers in my mother’s field.
An invitation of sorts.
You took it as one and spent five months
thinking about slipping your fingers into my mouth.
I think the Earth changed the day we met,
It had been waiting for you to bare your teeth
and swallow me whole
It had been waiting for the cup of your palm
around my neck except you didn’t have to beg baby
you said “let me show you what flowers look like
from the earth up.”
and I said “yes, please. Show me your flowers,
show me your dead, show me your fingers.”
My mother warned me about gods like you,
hungry, greedy gods like you
all desire and no thought
all want and no logic
I was the same.
I skipped with you into hell
Artemis knows dragged, I know this:
I held my arms outwards and let you tie them
so softly that I asked what they were made of
and you said “prayers.”
We kissed at the entrance, open-mouthed
furious kisses
we kissed like we were starving,
kissed like the dead were crawling out of hell
I decorated your dark with flowers
and sat on your lap and fed you petals.
It makes me burn when they say
“Hades stole Persephone.”

and I tell them “No.
I stole him.”

- Azra.T, “Persephone”  (via 5000letters)

more precious than any jewel in his hoard
When I was sixteen, I made the discovery — love. All at once and much, much too completely. It was like you suddenly turned a blinding light on something that had always been half in shadow, that’s how it struck the world for me. But I was unlucky.

- Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire (via larmoyante)

emegustart:

We have this headcanon about them not being one of these super touchy-feely couples. They’re more into little details and little gestures. And if you want to catch these moments you have to pay attention.

Until we have seen someone’s darkness we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is.

- Marianne Williamson (via nevesnevele)

brandos:

Rose, I’ve been a bachelor for 56 years. And then I met you and we just fell into this rhythm… like we had known each other forever. I always dreamed of finding somebody like you but I’d given up hope that I ever would. I know, I know it’s crazy. I mean we just met five months ago, but five months is long enough because I knew after five minutes.
