i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.

10 word story #2 by E.K.
You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.

what would you do if your tumblr crushed moved to NYC and admitted she was totally into you too
Same thing that happens to any two people anywhere who are totally into each other…
Spend some time together and then eventually hurt each other.
Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.

that time i fell for this girl really hard and i was actually scared being with her. i had butterflies getting ready to meet her. i had butterflies sitting across the table from her. i had butterflies thinking of how i would have to say bye to her that night. i was always nervous because i didnt know how she really felt about me and i was way too into her… but there was one night where i couldnt stand it anymore and while crossing the street i stopped halfway, grabbed her hand, pulled her in and kissed her. i could feel her smile. all doubts and insecurities were gone. that was a reall
one time i grilled up the most absolutely perfect steak of my entire life. it took me about 30 minutes to eat it. i want those 30 minutes again.
It’s like I’m reading a book… and it’s a book I deeply love. But I’m reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you… and the words of our story… but it’s in this endless space between the words that I’m finding myself now. It’s a place that’s not of the physical world. It’s where everything else is that I didn’t even know existed. I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can’t live your book any more.
