"Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason."
Andrew Solomon (via observando)

"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."

Ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok


I am an architect of scenarios that do not exist.
You loved me once, by the Gulf of Mexico, with the wind blowing in my hair - you loved me once, but you do not remember.

When we allowed the sun to burn our skin
on the beach that spring break,
we promised ourselves this is the only pain we
would ever have to go through alone.

I close my eyes and try to separate reality from these self constructed dreams of you and me
and I do not know what is real anymore.

I remember us flying kites in the field in your grandma’s
yard the day after you said you loved me,
but neither of us have ever held a kite in our hands.

I remember us rocking on your front porch talking
about our quilted future, sewn together -
but you do not own any rocking chairs…
you do not even have a front porch,
just stepping stone walkways to your front door.

I think I made this love up inside my head.
Are your eyes even green?
Did you ever love me?

I am an architect of scenarios that will never exist.
When I told you I loved you,
you said you didn’t even know me.
