How to kill someone;
Hold their hand and then never touch their skin again,
See them nearly everyday and pretend they don’t exist,
Act like everything you ever said to them was a lie.
All I wanted was to receive the love I gave.
You get a little moody sometimes but I think that’s because you like to read. People that like to read are always a little fucked up.
- Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides (via observando)
Her heart sank into her shoes as she realized how much she wanted him.
No matter what his past was, no matter what he had done.
Which was not to say that she would ever let him know,
but only that he moved her chemically more than anyone she had ever met,
that all other men seemed pale beside him.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
