"I can’t abandon
the person I used to be
so I carry her"

"Oh, I don’t mean you’re handsome, not the way people think of handsome. Your face seems kind. But your eyes — they’re beautiful. They’re wild, crazy, like some animal peering out of a forest on fire."

Charles Bukowski, Women (via wordsnquotes)

"You were not made for the shame in his eyes when he can’t explain to his friends why he loves you."

Azra Tabassum (via agresnep)

"I will remember your small room, the feel of you, the light in the window, your records, your books, our morning coffee, our noons, our nights, our bodies spilled together, sleeping, the tiny flowing currents, immediate and forever. Your leg, my leg, your arm, my arm, your smile and the warmth of you who made me laugh again."

Charles Bukowski, Raw With Love (via ughpoems)

"I used to think I was tough, but then I realized I wasn’t. I was fragile and I wore thick fucking armor. And I hurt people so they couldn’t hurt me. And I thought that was what being tough was, but it isn’t."
