Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.

(via im-simply-me)

It took me a long time to realize
that the world does not belong to me
and even with my careful steps
I will eventually get hurt in some way.

It’s not that it’s all intentional,
I mean the universe is not out to get me
it’s just that it was written in the stars
for humanity to plot pain within
happiness and struggle within
success so who am I to mess
with the Fates of this galaxy?

Although, on some days I wish
that I was closer to the constellations
that spell out my name because
I just want to know what it feels like
to have control of my life again.

I thought I was invincible until I learned about space (via ink-trails)
