I’ll play with your hair
until the weight of the night
anchors your eyes shut.
I want someone to really want me. Make a big deal about me, tell me I’m on your mind way too fucking much but you kinda like it. Make it completely obvious that I’m the person you want. Tell me you can’t wait to see me; show me how you feel so I can feel it too.
Make me feel something I’ve never felt before. Tell your friends about me & I’ll tell them about how you make butterflies swam my stomach. Want me as much as I want you.
a girlfriend is a potential wife, if you ask me. relationships are investments not hobbies. y’all gotta grow up.
The women have as much right to fight for their lives as the men do.
C, let’s take bets (via coltonsnead)
I bet you make
the sunset jealous
to merely look
fair against you.
I bet the sun
sinks below horizons
because it knows
it cannot compare to the
way your eyes shine
and I bet Heaven
looks a lot like your smile.
BOOOM. Read this if you are a dude, please.
These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.
There’s time we can waste
and there’s time we must treasure,
please have both with me.
These are fucking gorgeous
the last is my fav
