Thinking Out Loud

Stop. Leave your fears with me for they are beautiful. Leave your nightmares. Leave the things you've never told anyone and leave behind everything that hurts. I will take you to the library and have silent conversations with you. You'll refuse to look at me and I'll listen to what that would have to say. I'll leave painful coffee mug outlines in the journal you'be been hiding away and aimlessly draw pretty things around them. Then I will carefully break the bridges we left hanging midway and make a house out of the bricks. So, hey when you're tired of running, leave behind the masks and leave behind your ego. I'll save them in a silver lunch box and cook you some breakfast instead. When you open the box at lunch, you'll see that you aren't crazy. You are just a little weird and I'm quite a sucker for that. I wrote this for you. You know who you are.

Date a girl that reads

Date a girl that reads. She likes her coffee strong and her nights late. Find her sniffing books randomly. Find her when you see her carrying an unread book in her bag all the time. She'll envelope you in her web of stories you wish you hadn't written and you never imagined to be a part of . She will take you to the museums, beaches and parking lots and elaborate every little detail of the frame that you start liking photographs. Every word she says will be a form of poetry you wish you could turn into still images. She would then make you want to hold hands which seemed so extravagant and unlikely amateur before. You'd want to revisit the same places she took you to already, because each time it would be quite a different kind of beautiful. She'd send you pretty little love notes with her lipstick marks on it.  She'll fill your playlist with soundtracks of movies that you never realized you'd like before. The way she looks at you would make you want to write songs or even more sing them to her. She'll always admire your voice. She will take you to watch sunsets and you will admire them as much as you are awed by her sincerity to the moment. She'll make you happy about nothing and everything at the same time; it almost sounds like infinity. Find someone who reads Murakami. Talk to her about your favourite. Tell her why. She'll listen. She'll listen to you extremely carefully. Hurt her once, because hearts can heal. Don't hurt her twice. Don't be with her if monotony is all you can give. If you want something quite like this and quite beyond it, date a girl that reads. You deserve her. She is the one that changes your life. Or, just date a girl who writes.
