One day you’re going to wake up and realize how truly amazing she is…and when that day comes she’ll be waking up next to the guy who already knewCassie (via del-arte)
i know we’re moving slowly and
i know we don’t know exactly where we’re going
but as long as i’m with you eventually
i dont care how we get there
let’s be in each other’s lives for a very long time
I cannot promise that you will be safe inside my heart.
I can’t even promise that you’ll be able to make my heart a home.
See, the thing is, I can’t promise you anything.
I’ve promised it all before, forevers, no goodbyes, everything. And i’ve broken them all.
but here I am, standing before you -
i am skin and bone
and every emotion you can think of
i cant think straight
i cant speak without stuttering
i am a mess
and most of the time i am terrified but
i am not hiding.
i am not hiding
and maybe that doesn’t mean a lot to you,
but for someone who has spent half their life trying not to be seen,
this means everything.
sometimes i think about where we’ll be in five years
and i cannot promise ill be by your side,
but i hope so.
i hope so.

It scares me to think of just how little sleep I’ve gotten in the last few years, compared to what we’re ‘supposed to’. Risk of heart attack, stroke, early dementia, all the news fit to print and somehow consciously ignored (or hoped that it won’t happen.)
Sleep; you’re an elusive balance to the day.(via healthcareinfoguide)
