"He is always my biggest smile
of the day and the one who
holds my secrets; his title is
‘best’ because he is that for
me. When two trees grow
close enough together, their
roots wind up and become
one single mess - it’s around
that spot where I lost my
heart to him. Sometimes I
think I must have his too."
Rebeka Anne, and it’s here that the story becomes a romance or a tragedy (via anneisrestless)

"

He tells me to
open
my mind
through closed lips.
His sheets
slip like sand
through my fingers.
I have carved my name
into his heart,
he has built his fences
around mine.

Was it love?
The stars have
yet
to answer,
but his tongue never
tasted like
forever.

Was it love?
Do not name scar tissue
after men
who are far less
permanent.
