such radiance hidden *

I play hockey upfront but I don't like scoring because I prefer seeing others succeed. I listen to music if I like the lyrics, not the artist. I hunch up and dodge cigarette smoke clouds as they dissolve into the air. I like it when it's raining and it's dark and the only thing letting you see the drops fall are the lamps on the pavement or the headlights of the cars and it looks just like tiny stars are hitting the ground and splintering into pinpricks of light and then the light goes and they've gone. And this is the place where the light shines and everyone can see those tiny pinpricks. Even if I'm hidden.

IF YOU LOVE SOMEONE YOU DON’T JUST CUT THEM OUT OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND YOU GET SAD WHEN THEY’RE HURTING AND YOU STOP THE HURT

I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.
