I’ve lost the use of my heart, but I’m still alive.
Sade (Soldier of Love)

Why am I still awake?


Teff, the color-blocking don.

Like, how do you just put these amazing outfits together?!

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
Sarah Williams, Twilight Hours: A Legacy of Verse (via observando)


A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.
Dylan Thomas (via observando)
The poetry of the earth is never dead.
John Keats (via observando)

Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,

Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach and Other Poems (via observando)


"It’s not racist if it’s true haha"

Dear dark skin girls



Never be afraid to wear all the bright colors you want. You do not have to stick to the purples, dark blues & blacks because they’re more “suitable” for your dark skin, and bright colors make your dark skin “stand out” too much.

Fuck that.

Wear the all the neons, pinks, yellows, bright red, white and anything else you want because your dark skin is beautiful and should flaunt it all you want. 


& use that liner girlie, yas.


listening to an album for the first time is weird bc you have to give your full attention to it and you cant sing along
