"Don’t tell me that you love me, because anyone can tell me that. Tell me that I make you tear up with anger and frustration, but at the end of the day you still want to lay down next to me, put your arms around me, and sleep."
Find someone who makes you realize three things: one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared.
I know, I just said it SOUNDS like it.
I hold that the best way to give no fucks about a day is to just stay in and just have marathon sex.
Then again, that is my suggested solution to pretty much everything.
“I hold that the best way to give no fucks about a day is to just stay in and just have marathon sex.”
I love that.
"Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? That is the real test."
Alain de Botton
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be."
"Kiss your own fingertips
and hug your own curves.
You are made of waves and honey
and spicy peppers when it is necessary.
You are a goddess,
I hope you haven’t forgotten."
"When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most."
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home
"She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’"
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
"I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone."
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
"I want to moan and writhe with you and I want to go up to you and kiss your mouth and pull you to me and say ‘I love you I love you I love you’ while stripping. I want you so bad it stings."
Bret Easton Ellis
Everything you love is here.
"So, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy, I really do. I hope the stars are kissing your cheeks tonight. I hope you finally found a way to quit smoking. I hope your lungs are open and breathing your life. I hope there’s a kite in your hand that’s flying all the way up to Orion and you still got a thousand yards of string to let out.
I hope you’re smiling like god is pulling at the corners of your mouth. Cause I might be naked and lonely, shaking branches for bones, but I’m still time zones away from who I was the day before we met.
You were the first mile where my heart broke a sweat. And I wish you were here. I wish you’d never left."
"Sometimes, you just need someone else to pick you up. It’s not because you’re lazy or you’re being needy. You just need to be reminded that someone cares to help you when you’re down and even if that person was to never help you up again, you can continue, knowing that there is still goodness in this world. Sometimes, that is all that matters and all that you need."

"Sometimes feelings are so good
you wish they’d never happened just
so you can experience it for the first time again."
Jessica Marie, The First Time
"Do I love you? Do I lust for you? Am I a sinner because I do the two?"

Welcome to Casa de Alex
1 / 20
I like to be called Alex. I have a strong Portuguese heritage. I'm eighteen and still trying to find my place in the world. I'm working on giving more structure to my life. I've fallen in love with the nature of words. Music is a distraction from life. I thoroughly enjoy surrounding myself with positive people. When I love, I love hard. I believe in God. (:
