I moved in to college yesterday and I feel so awkward

'Cause I don't wanna fall in love if you don't wanna try,
But all that I've been thinking of is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we're running out of words to say
And love's floating away, won't you stay?
"Sometimes, creating a little distance will help people recognize how much you actually mean to them."

"She said how can i relate to somebody who doesnt speak
i feel like I'm just treading water
Is it the same for you?"

 // the 1975 // 
 // The blood is on your tongue

aswell as your hands //

How far have you walked for men who've never held your feet in their laps? How often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short? Why do you find the unavailable so alluring? Where did it begin? What went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless? If they wanted you, wouldn't they have chosen you? All this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn't hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin. And what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it? How are you both of these women, both flighty and needful? Where did you learn this, to want what does not want you? Where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?
     — Warsan Shire

    Next time he points out the hair on your legs is growing back remind that boy your body is not his home, he is a guest. Warn him to never outstep his welcome again.

why do you live in
your body like you will be given another? As if it were temporary. You starve it, you let anyone touch it, you berate it, tell it that it should be completely different. You tug at your soft flesh, wish it thinner, wish it gone. You fall in love with those who praise the way it sighs under their hands, but who praises the way it holds up your weight, even when you are falling apart?

Over the hills and far away
She prays he will return one day
As sure as the rivers reach the seas
Back in his arms he swears she'll be...

The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand, and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.
