He’d never cared much for strawberries, but that summer her lips were so stained with the juices that they were all he tasted.

And he’d never had a favourite fruit, but two years later, a new girl is sat in front of him, laughing at his jokes.

"If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?" She asks playfully.

And he remembers how her hands traced the veins in his neck and made their way across his chest. He remembers her soft breathing and limbs draped across his shoulders.

"Strawberries." He tells her. "I could live a life on nothing but strawberries."

Excerpt from a book I’ll never write #54 -"Strawberries" (via blossomfully)

The hardest period in life is one’s twenties. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous, and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.
Helen Mirren, quoted in Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” (via psych-facts)

Many people think about heartache and instantly picture a 5am sunrise, when the world outside is at its quietest and you suddenly feel most alone.

And you stare at your phone hoping to see a text, only to find yourself crying into your pillow an hour later because there isn’t one, and you can’t imagine a time when there will be.

But for me, since you went away, it’s two in the afternoon, shopping in my local supermarket and walking by everything I used to pick up for you.

And there’s sunlight outside and the day is beautiful and everything is perfect, but none of it matters because I’m not sharing it with you.

So I just go home, make myself a sandwich, climb into bed and wonder how you are.

Again.
