    Well I don't necessarily always like to share

    thoughts and quotes, but I do find it to be exciting how just a few words struggle together can speak to your mind or your heart or your whole being so loudly and clearly that you want to print them out and write them down or post them on your walls everywhere. It's really nice...

    You don't need another human being to complete

    you. But let's be honest, having your wounds kissed by somebody that doesn't see them as disasters in your soul but as cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world. Emery Allen

    Sylvia Plath

    One of my favorite quotes by a lady who personified depth and could put her thoughts into words like no other:“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.” So simple, yet so much punch in a few words.

    She tried to tear herself away from him.

    The effort broke against his arms that had not felt it. Her fists beat against his shoulders, against his face. He moved one had, took her two wrists, pinned them behind her, under his arm, wrenching her shoulder blades. She twisted her head back. She felt his lips on her breast...
