For people who don’t love you.

“Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable—your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers—and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves.”
“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do.”
— Hermann Hesse (via splitterherzen)

Women Are Not Roses

Women have no
only continual

Though rivers flow
women are not

Women are not
they are not oceans
or stars.

i would like to tell
her this but
i think she
already knows.
