I Am Not A One-Night Stand Kind Of Girl (Thought Catalog)

Because this entry speaks to me in more ways than one

I want late night conversations while I’m sitting on the kitchen counter in his baggy t-shirt with a hole in the collar, eating ice cream and talking about the universe.

Here’s a little something to keep me motivated during the final week of the semester. Original wallpaper made by this person from DeviantArt.

Just a little more push.

We can do this.

I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.

When we were young they told us we could be whatever we wanted to be.

They never told us of the battles we would face
The scorn that would slice like swords.

Some dreamt of the stars, of the moon or the earth
I dreamt of the sun, of the rays of happiness to fill my soul
Instead I am night and the shards of darkness rip at my seams.

They told us we could be whatever we wanted to be, be whoever we wanted to be.
Well fuck them because they lied.

We can be whoever we settle to be // We never stood a chance (c.f)

I almost thanked you for
teaching me something about survival
back there,
but then I remembered
that the ocean never
handed me the gift of swimming.
I gave it to myself.
