At 2 am my heart speaks what my brain is too tired to know

I say “it’s nothing” because that’s a hell of a lot easier than explaining how it’s everything
My mental health (via an-unread-book)

I don’t realize how sad I am until I’m my myself. If I keep myself occupied I’m fine, but when I’m alone, it’s bad.

By now, it is probably very late at night, and you have stayed up to read this book when you should have gone to sleep. If this is the case, then I commend you for falling into my trap. It is a writer’s greatest pleasure to hear that someone was kept up until the unholy hours of the morning reading one of his books. It goes back to authors being terrible people who delight in the suffering of others. Plus, we get a kickback from the caffeine industry…
Brandon Sanderson - Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians (via bookporn)
Distance isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for people who don’t mind being alone. Who realize that you both lead separate lives even as you share one love. It’s for 2am phone calls and snuggling with your pillow. It’s for those precious moments when you know you’re the only one who has their attention, even if it’s only for a few minutes. Distance isn’t for the weak. It’s for the strong. It’s for those who know when something is worth it, regardless of how many miles are between you.

I’m so scared that I’m never going to get over you
12:17 am (via brizzlewritesthings )

Some nights
I miss you so much
that I don’t even know
how to stop
the heaviness in my heart.
It’s as if my lungs are collapsing
and it becomes so hard
to breathe.

Some nights
I miss you to the point
where I’m not sure I can handle it.
I remind myself that I am strong
and I will be alright,
and I know I will
but at the moment,
I forget.

Some nights
I miss you
and it’s unbearable
so I just sleep instead.
I dream of you
and this time you didn’t say goodbye
and it ends the way I wish it would,
until I open my eyes.

Some nights
I miss you.
I keep missing you.
I miss you when it rains
and I miss you when the sun shines.
I miss you by the city lights
and I miss you when the sun sets by the river.
I miss you when I drink my coffee
and I miss you when I take my walks.

I think
I will keep missing you.
