She was a candle in a dark room.
He looked to her for guidance.
She was the only light in his life.
Her heat thawed the ice in him.
She kept him warm.
He had never known anything more comforting.
The melting wax stifled him for a second.
He braved through it to catch just a whiff of her.
The air started to crackle.
Something was burning up.
He didn’t realize that it was him.
Before he knew it, he was covered in marks.
She took the evidence with her when she left.
He would be scarred forever.

The course of true love never did run smooth.William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (via feellng)
One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.John Green (via schlafwandel)
