A lost voice can always be found, so long as there is someone listening. This is that lost voice, hopefully, you're listening. This will be random, some of it probably won't make any sense, but isn't that the beauty of one's mind? It doesn't have to make sense because nothing in life really does. So open your eyes, hearts, and minds, and enjoy. :D I take criticism pretty well so please, comment away.

You tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do, love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

For Women Who Are Difficult to Love by Warsan Shire (via wordsthat-speak)


Why do I cave in the minute you make me laugh. You’re not supposed to make me laugh. Youre supposed to leave me alone.
