So therefore I dedicate myself to myself, to my art, my sleep, my dreams, my labors, my suffrances, my loneliness, my unique madness, my endless absorption and hunger - because I cannot dedicate myself to any fellow being. — Jack Kerouac  (via thatkindofwoman)
Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.the little prince (via sikva)

I aim to be
but my
hands still
and my voice
isn’t quite
— Michelle K., Earning Your Roar (via blurrymelancholy)

To you 
(I’m not sure if this was a quote that I heard// if this was said by someone)
I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort—and disappointment and perseverance. — Vincent van Gogh (via antelucanhourglass)
I want to fall to sleep with you,
and I could care less
whether it is in
layers upon layers
of clothing
or only our skin–
all I really want is to wake up
not knowing
where I end and you begin.
Beau Taplin, "A Goodnight"  (via muse)

A selfportrait I did while unable to sleep one night
You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.
How I Met Your Mother (via laurenarlene)
do not make
out of people.
this will leave you
and sad,
missing arms that
cannot hold
hearts with
shaky foundations.
— Home (Michelle K)
You look at me
with disappointment in your eyes
but i warned you
from the start
i really am not
good enough
