“I want you to think of me when you’re drunk, think damn what i would do to have her here. I want you to be sitting there late at night and wish you were holding me near. I hope your bed feels empty even with her lying there. I hope you think of me.”—~ (via thoughtsforthought)
“Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love”—Unknown (via timmy)

The Notebook was about a man who wrote 365 letters to the woman he loved. The Great Gatsby was about a man who built himself up in hopes of obtaining the woman he loved. Both were motivated by the love they had for one special woman; both were persistent. But only one succeeded.
My story will be a mixture of both. Like Noah Calhoun, I might end up composing 365 pieces from the bottom of my heart. Like Jay Gatsby, I will build myself up by doing what I should have done back then.
But I’m afraid that my story will end up to be more like Gatsby’s. No, I’m afraid that I am Gatsby, the female version. I will be the best ‘me’ that I can possibly be, but I will never get the one I love. This is the love story that I’ve been trying to avoid. This is the love story that I’ve been running away from. This is the love story that is happening.
