by the time you left I was so paper-thin it didn't take much to be torn in half by the cold winter wind.

"Everytime we make the decision to love someone, we open ourselves to great suffering beacuse those we love the most cause us not only great joy but also great pain. The greatest pain comes from leaving. When the child leaves home, when the husband or wife leaves for a long period of time or for good, when the beloved friend departs to another country or dies.. the pain of the leaving can tear us apart.
Still, if we want to avoid the suffering of leaving we will never experience the joy of loving. Love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. We have to trust that the risk of loving is always worth taking." 
"I know you don't love me. I know you don't think about what it would be like to trace your fingertips along the edge of my jaw and across my eyelids and on the inside of my knee. I know that I think of you as sunlight and you don't think about me at all. I know it's a one-sided kind of love, the kind where you don't taste acid on your tounge when you see someone's hand around my own.
I know you don't love me. I know you don't but I can't help the fact that I love you. I love you so much that I slur it in drunken hazes and think about it when I go to sleep. I wish I could press my love into every inch of your skin and bruise it into your heart so that it could beat to the sound of my love, but you're too out of reach and I'm too hard to love. Please know that I love you more than I can begin to understand. Please let me know if one day you wake up and suddenly see me in a different way.
I know you don't feel me in your bones but if you ripped my chest open all you'd find is your smile and your eyes and your laugh in the inseam of my heart. You'll find the love that I possess and the bleeding cracks from the love that you don't." 
"The truth is you bring out the animal in me. Sometimes it's the lion and sometimes it's the lamb."
"You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that." 
"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful and don't forget to make some art- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year you surprise yourself."
