The Good Girl by Shayne McClendon

When you choose to love someone who is damaged, you take on the weight of their past, their pain, their guilt.

You must be strong.
You must be patient.

You can stop the bleeding, and help them scar over. But they will always, always be a little broken.

If you can handle that, if you can accept the dents and cracks, if you can get them to trust you, you will never find a better ally than one who is damaged.
Above all else: they know about survival. After all, they are still here wondering if someone like you will ever love them.

You Are A Hurricane

I am not the first person you loved. You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night. Our love came when we’d given up on asking love to come. I think that has to be part of its miracle. This is how we heal. I will kiss you like forgiveness. You will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms will bandage and we will press promises between us like flowers in a book. I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat on your skin. I will write novels to the scar of your nose. I will write a dictionary of all the words I have used trying to describe the way it feels to have finally, finally found you. And I will not be afraid of your scars. I know sometimes it’s still hard to let me see you in all your cracked perfection, but please know: whether it’s the days you burn more brilliant than the sun or the nights you collapse into my lap your body broken into a thousand questions, you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I will love you when you are a still day. I will love you when you are a hurricane.

Ps. I do not own this.

Love According to Ted Mosby

     If you’re looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you.. It’s love. And when you love someone, you don’t stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes, or call you crazy. Even that. Especially that. You just, you don’t give up. Because if I could give up, if I could just take the whole worlds advice, and move on and find someone else, that wouldn’t be love. That would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for.

I Don’t Wanna Fight – Nina Lyrics

I tried the best I can
All you say is I don’t understand
I can’t find the reason
Why you were acting this way

How did it all begin?
Nobody thought of giving in
I’m tired of talking about it
Nothing’s going right
Just for tonight

I don’t wanna fight
Do you have to find the words to make me cry?
Do you have to always prove you’re always right?
And say if I’m not the one you need
Say if all the bad is all that you see, my baby

Look at all these tears
Happy memories have disappeared
I’m tired of talking about it
Nothing’s going right
Just for tonight

I don’t wanna fight
Do you have to find the words to make me cry?
Do you have to always prove you’re always right?
And say if I’m not the one you need
Just say if all the bad is all that you see, my baby
