Quiet Things that No One Ever Knows

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

Maybe I’ll never hear that song again and die happy.
The memory will fade
and the bass drum will stop
fitting my heartbeat.

I will stop hearing ‘just friends’ repeat.
I will stop the unwelcome chorus.

I will stop having to remember
to forget your smile when the beat kicked in,
your excitement that built
into the perfect harmony

I will stop drumming my fingers
at the counter when I order
one coffee
not two

I will stop walking in 4/4 time
as the space beside me fills
with hurrying strangers
strange paces

If I hear the intro in a shop
I will dash for the door

If I hear it on the tv
I will work out how to mute

If it plays on my ipod
I will skip it before a word is uttered

Its only my favourite
if you can hear it too.

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again."

"I deserve someone whose fought for years to be the wonderful person they are. I deserve someone whose loving their self, and still learning.
I want someone whose been through life, and had to love themselves back to life time and time again.
Tell me your story, what comforts you at night when you’re alone with your thoughts? Tell me all the things it took you years to love about yourself.
Show me your depths.
Show me your vulnerability.
Let go of your fears.
Let go of your pride.
I just want a woman I can make feel amazing everyday… and I also want her to know she’s amazing without me."

"He may love you. He probably does. He probably thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters. What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life."

"Look at me and tell me you don’t feel anything. See me smiling and tell me it doesn’t hurt. Know I’m not writing about you and tell me you’re still the same person you were a moment ago. Go ahead. You can tell me what you want because I’ll know what you mean. That’s the thing about a person who used to love you. They get in your head, take off their shoes and get comfortable. Tell me you don’t miss me. You do."


Bullshit, you fucking miss me by k.p.k
