A gentle reminder that your heart is a
muscle and so should be exercised regularly,
love often and love deeply.
Beau Taplin || Fitspo (via afadthatlastsforever)
There is no dark corner of
your heart I will not explore, no
flaw or feature too frightening
to know— there’s no depth to
which I dare not go, for you,
my love, are a universe.
And I mean to inhabit all of
you.
Beau Taplin || A universe of you.  (via afadthatlastsforever)
We’re all so desperate to be understood,
we forget to be understanding.

Some people make love like they are speaking in a second language; stumbling awkwardly over one another, every movement so rehearsed it is depleted of soul and devoid of all passion. Without comprehending one another completely, the meaning, the truth, in the act is lost. But you and I fuck like we are speaking in our firsts; it is deliberate and instinctual, natural, effortless, we fall into each other, over and over, like simple, quiet, wonderful, conversation.
Beau Taplin || The language barrier of love making.  (via afadthatlastsforever)
Human beings love to fill their hollow spaces up with other people. The distracting easy fix of love. But it doesn’t work that way. You can’t cover up a dirty floor with a venetian rug and expect the mess to disappear, no matter how wonderful it is. People are not cover ups for your problems. Eventually all things come to surface, and you might find when it does, the mess you long neglected has ruined your only reason for holding on.

You want to know what it was? The moment I knew you were it? It was when I showed you the darkest parts of me, and instead of running away, you rolled out a blanket, laid on your back, and pointed out the stars.

I don’t care about your so-called
baggage. I’ll make room enough here
for all of you.

At some point, as you grow older, this life will expect
you to settle down, to make do with a simple, comfortable,
easy sort of love. You will interview hopeful contenders
in their droves, choosing whoever’s easiest on the eyes or
purse: the most important decision you are given in your life
becomes little more than a clever business move.
Slow down. Do not allow yourself to lose the desire we all
have when we’re young to find a love you’d fight for,
the kind that puts a shiver down your spine when you kiss,
and an ache in your soul when it leaves. I’m telling you,
we must listen to our inner voice, and when you know whose
name it speaks then prepare yourself for war, because love
is not a choice.
Beau Taplin || Santiago.  (via afadthatlastsforever)
The terrifying thing about love
is its power to make an earth
populated by over 7 billion people
feel like it is inhabited by only one,
making our own little world
heaven if they’re here,
and a lonely hell if they’re not.
Beau Taplin || Lonely hell.   (via afadthatlastsforever)

You are between fifty and
sixty-five percent water.
You cannot be broken any
more than an ocean can.

Whoever told you that your
life only starts when someone
else walks into it, they are a liar.
They do not know your heart.
