“You said it in a simple way at 4 AM on the second day: ‘How strange that I don’t know you at all.’ Stumbled through the long goodbye, one last kiss. Then, catch your flight - right when I was just about to fall. I told myself don’t get attached, but in my mind I play it back spinning faster than the plane that took you… And, this is when the feeling sinks in. I don’t wanna miss you like this. Come back, be here… I don’t wanna need you this way.”
- “Come Back, Be Here,” Taylor Swift"
“I guess I know by now that we will meet again somehow. Time can come and wash away the pain; but, I just want my mind to stay the same: to hear your voice, to see your face. There’s not one moment I’d erase.”
- “How,” Regina Spektor
“I found your hairband on my bedroom floor, the only evidence that you’d been here before. And, I don’t get waves of missing you anymore. They’re more like tsunami tides in my eyes. …Our last kiss it was perfect, but we were nervous on the surface. And, I’m always saying everyday that it was worth it. Pain is only relevant if it still hurts. …Or we can…go back to the day we fell in love on our first kiss.”
- “U.N.I.” Ed Sheeran"
“All the bright precious things fade fast and they don’t come back.”
- Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby"
“If there’re a few things I miss about him, it would be the way he looked at me and when I looked at him, and we both felt something. And, the holding hands. and laying in his bed with my arm around his back holding him closer and closer and feeling the warmth of his body; that was honestly the best feeling. I’m realizing that even though I’ve only known him for two weeks, me being a romantic and all, those two weeks and every romantic moment felt like a life time for me. It’s a burden; being a romantic person. But, everything’s amazing when you’re with someone.”
“Maybe there’s something you’re afraid to say,
Or, someone you’re afraid to love,
Or, somewhere you’re afraid to go.
It’s gonna hurt.
It’s gonna hurt because it matters.”
- John Green"
