I’ve moved on, yes, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten. And that doesn’t mean that I won’t be here anymore if you ever want to come back.

You gradually get over the pain. It doesn’t go away, not for a long time, but it becomes easier to live with. One morning you wake up and he’s not the first thing on your mind. And then a few months down the line you realize you’ve made it through half the day without thinking of him. Sometimes it takes months, sometimes, years, but eventually you reach a point when you only think about them occasionally. You manage to do this because you don’t see them, you don’t hear about them, you try not to think about them. And then you bump into them walking down the street, or someone unexpected mentions their name… and the memories come flooding back.

They say that missing someone gets easier as the days go by but I just can’t bring myself to agree to that statement. For me, it just gets harder and harder to go on… to pretend that I don’t miss him, to pretend that I don’t care, when in reality… his absence is causing me nothing but pain.
There are worse things than being alone but it often takes decades to realize this and most often when you do it’s too late and there’s nothing worse than too late.
Charles Bukowski (via runawaytrain)
I’m so afraid of losing something I love that I refuse to love anything.
Jonathan Safran Foer (via runawaytrain)
While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.
Jeanette Winterson (via runawaytrain)
Obviously we still love each other, but every time we get too close, one of us puts up a wall. And it’s not easy being on the other side of that wall.
One Tree Hill (via runawaytrain)
A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life to be thankful for a good one.
Elizabeth Taylor (via runawaytrain)
Whenever I am sad I am going to die, or so nervous I can’t sleep, or in love with somebody I won’t be seeing for a week, I take a hot bath.
Sylvia Plath (via runawaytrain)
Stay for me. Stay with me. There will never be anyone else. Not in my bed. Not in my life. And not in my heart.
Rachel Vincent, Alpha (via runawaytrain)
They say when you are missing someone that they are probably feeling the same, but I don’t think it’s possible for you to miss me as much as I am missing you right now.
