Are you quiet when you need to be loved? Or do you raise your voice into a lion’s roar? Will you nudge yourself into my hips? Will you bite my shoulders and say ‘I need you to love me harder today’? Are you softer in the mornings? Which side of the bed do you like to take? Do you sprawl yourself out and steal the covers? Do you sleep naked? Do you take your coffee black? In the summer, do you flip the pillow and sigh when your cheek touches the cold side? Do you keep the windows open at night? If so, how? Aren’t you scared of monsters? Do you know that I’m scared of everything that lives in the dark? Are you aware that sometimes I get so nervous I forget how to move my feet? Can you be patient? Can you be gentle? Do you know how? Is there a quiet war raging inside of you? When you curl your fists and raise your chin, are you donning your armour? Can I help? Can I fight all of your demons with you? I won’t shy away from them, not if it would make you happy. Do you know that I’d stand in the dark in an empty room for you? Do you know that I trust you’d never ask that of me? Do you know that I don’t flinch when you cup my face? Even though if you so much as twitched too hard you could break me? Isn’t this what trust looks like? Isn’t it how I am always skin and emotions for you? Isn’t it saying ‘I love you more today than I did yesterday, but it was a whole lot yesterday’? Listen, do you feel safest when you’re holding yourself together? Do you think someday you can let that go? Will you let me take the pieces of you and keep them close? Can you let me love you? Will you learn how to? It doesn’t matter, I’ll wait.

He’s not afraid of how brightly my star shines. He loves my quirks. My heart and soul. He polishes my crown when I forget myself. He’ll tie my boots when it’s time for war.
He becomes my calm when a storm brews inside of me. I respect him. I see him. He sees me. Which is rare. He understands my brokenness. And I, his.
There’s passion here. There’s true love. But there’s also friendship. Wanting the best for one another. Not being afraid to be angry with one another.
The honeymoon is over. But the dating will never end. To find your person so early on in life, but at the perfect time, is uplifting.
18-year-old Michael Brown was gunned down on Saturday by a Ferguson police officer in St. Louis. Witnesses say Brown had his hands in the air as he was shot from 35 feet away.

Anonymous asked: How can I budget to wear designer clothing?
The worst thing you can do with your money is buy designer clothing. Its over priced, over valued and over sensationalised. Save whatever you have and buy a plane ticket to somewhere new.
Trust me that experience of travelling has more longevity than a shirt from Givenchy made with child labor in china. If people used their Jordans money to see new cultures, they would be more well rounded individuals from Chicago.
What use is it to gain worldly possessions an loose your soul? When you die you won’t be buried with the things you bought.
Stay blessed and Inspired
