The name is Ali.

21. Redhead. Sagittarius.
I love life. I post whatever I feel like.

My problem with people today is that they give up so easy. It’s not that you can’t give up, it’s that they do it so easily. They walk away so easily. They divorce themselves from the chance to have a life long relationship so quickly. And they seem so quick to bond with people that they don’t know without putting the investment in the people that you do know to make something lasting and meaningful. You got friends on Facebook. You got people liking you and following you who don’t know you. You got all of this phony, pretentious facade of intimate relationship. And my question in my heart is, “Why are we so committed to that that is synthetic and disengage so quickly to that that is organic?”

Your body is the piece of the Universe you’ve been given.

do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
forever.

there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.

but you will never be
and have never been
“too much.”
