乡思

almostvalentine:

outstretched hands, brimming with hope, reaching straight up like sign posts in the air. the city is all movement and laughter tonight, but my thoughts are resting where the palm trees grow, where the soft slivers of evening light are only occasionally spliced by the smoke tendrils wafting from mamak stalls, roti canai stalls, char mee stalls.

give me a quiet night in my room, and my heart stirs, skips a beat, like this.

"I hope she kisses you with
the entire universe in her mouth
so that you wake up with
stars on your lips
and a smile that
drips constellations."

— Y.Z. (via larmoyante)

"I don’t want to earn my living; I want to live."

— Oscar Wilde (via larmoyante)

"Even when our eyes are closed, there’s a whole world out there that lives outside ourselves and our dreams."

Fullmetal Alchemist (via larmoyante)

"Seeing someone read a book you love is seeing a book recommend a person."

"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."
