It’s that time of year where everyone is leaving and going back or moving on and I just feel so stuck and diminished into something so insignificant. Truth is though, I just want to be happy with myself.

See the world for what it really is.

Write again when the words just haven’t been coming.

To finally date and be in a relationship where I love myself just as much as I’ll love my partner.

To feel accomplished, as though my life is heading in the right direction.

I just want life to make sense again – when I wasn’t so doubtful or so unsure or so miserable - when will it all make sense again?

These memories are enteral;

yet I still find myself changing.  

As a small child, I felt in my heart two contradictory feeling, the horror of life and the ecstasy of life.

I just want to find myself a cute date where we can talk about poetry and Shakespeare and get excited over new pieces that we’re writing and eat fruit and drink a lot of whisky and get tipsy and laugh over our own stupid stories and hold hands while we explore bookstores and cafes and marvel over art and get lost museums and travel together to new places and go on cute dates where we’re the last ones to leave and listen to music in our underwear as we cuddle and make out and fall asleep without a care in the world.

I wanted to express a few thoughts about being in a relationship – earlier today my ex called and it made me think…and though I know I don’t have all the answers – there’s a few things I think I can share that are important about investing yourself into a relationship and if you do, here’s a few things to think about:

Day 102 of 365

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see - You’ll see

I think what bothers me the most about meaningless sex – as in an one night stand or a simple hookup isn’t the action of it, because sometimes it’s just nice to feel wanted – it’s the aftermath of knowing that there can’t be more.

That you can’t trace your fingers to admire, to cherish, to appreciate – you find yourself knowing that you can’t hold them closer to not only feel wanted but to simply have someone’s warmth next to you. And perhaps that’s just me – I can’t just fuck – I can’t just feed into my desire to replace empty spaces for the sake of having someone there. What I want is to hold them after when everything is said and done and I can smile towards their direction and they’ll know just how beautiful they are to me –

Where I can memorize every mark on their skin and trace them with my lips – feeling every indent – and then to fall asleep without a care and to wake up with their scent hovering over my skin like a gentle kiss which lingers long after.

I just want that special somebody to hold for the night.

Two/Epilogue (acoustic)-the Antlers

Just found this while reading their AMA on Reddit; apparently they just set up camp in the back of a cafe in Paris and started playing. 

I don’t know how these guys do it-I’ve never known a band that could create so much emotion in me every single time I listen to them. I’ve heard these songs dozens of times before-I’ve even heard “Epilogue” live-and somehow hearing this has put me on the verge of tears yet again. 

The Antlers are incredible. 

This is unbelievable.

Please, take 15 minutes out of your day to watch this.
