    Caitlyn Siehl
    “Do not fall in love with people like me.
    I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
    I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.”
    Caitlyn Siehl, Literary Sexts: A Collection of Short & Sexy Love Poems

    Jeffrey Eugenides
    “On the morning the last Lisbon daughter took her turn at suicide—it was Mary this time, and sleeping pills, like Therese—the two paramedics arrived at the house knowing exactly where the knife drawer was, and the gas oven, and the beam in the basement from which it was possible to tie a rope.”
    Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides

    I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It's nice.

    Jay Asher
    “If my love were an ocean,
    there would be no more land.
    If my love were a desert,
    you would see only sand.
    If my love were a star-
    late at night, only light.
    And if my love could grow wings,
    I'd be soaring in flight.”
    Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

    Susane Colasanti
    “If a girl starts out all casual with a guy and she doesn't tell him that she wants a relationship, it will never become a relationship. If you give the guy the impression that casual is okay with you, that's all he'll ever want. Be straight with him from the start. If he gets scared and runs away, he wasn't right for you.”
    Susane Colasanti, Waiting for You

    J.D. Salinger
    “I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It's awful. If I'm on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asks me where I'm going, I'm liable to say I'm going to the opera. It's terrible.”
    J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

  • #15
    F. Scott Fitzgerald
    “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.”
    F. Scott Fitzgerald

    Anna Godbersen
    “Good girls hold their heads high by daylight,
    Their grace and their virtue soaring with kites,
    While bad girls slink along in their shame-
    Everyone stares at them, everyone blames.
    But those bad girls sleep soundly at night,
    Ne'er do their consciences wake them in a fright,
    While our good girls toss and they turn-
    They lay awake for those who will burn.”
    Anna Godbersen, Rumors

    Babe Walker, White Girl Problems

    Beau Taplin
    “Often, when we have a crush, when we lust for a person, we see only a small percentage of who they really are. The rest we make up for ourselves. Rather than listen, or learn, we smother them in who we imagine them to be, what we desire for ourselves, we create little fantasies of people and let them grow in our hearts. And this is where the relationship fails. In time, the fiction we scribble onto a person falls away, the lies we tell ourselves unravel and soon the person standing in front of you is almost unrecognisable, you are now complete strangers in your own love. And what a terrible shame it is. My advice: pay attention to the small details of people, you will learn that the universe is far more spectacular an author than we could ever hope to be.”
    Beau Taplin

    Iain S. Thomas
    “Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are”

    Lang Leav
    “It was a question I had worn on my lips for days - like a loose thread on my favourite sweater I couldn't resist pulling - despite knowing it could all unravel around me.

    "Do you love me?" I ask.

    In your hesitation I found my answer.”
    Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

    Ashe Vernon
    “Your ribcage never meant to hurt you.
    Your windpipe doesn’t know how to be pretty,
    but she knows how to howl—
    and here, I’d like to take a moment
    to submit a formal apology to my soft parts
    because they kept me warm
    when I was trying to freeze to death,
    and I hated them for it. An apology
    for a starvation that went deeper than my skin.
    One for the strongest skeleton I will ever own
    and how I kept using the word girl against it.
    Or how I turned words like beautiful into shapes
    I could contort myself into. I didn’t mean
    to compare myself to faces I can’t have.
    Or spend years trying to carve myself,
    like Michelangelo’s angels, from the marble—
    forgetting what it is to be skin instead of stone.
    I let myself be afraid. I was taught to be.
    When you learn you are only as good
    as your beauty routine, you forget
    how to define yourself by anything else.”
    Ashe Vernon, Wrong Side of a Fistfight

    Ashe Vernon
    “When he says he doesn’t love you anymore, roll your shoulders back and look him in the eye even when it feels like your ribs are breaking inward; like spider legs.

    When he digs up old aches that he swore he forgave you for, smile and ask him why he didn’t leave you sooner.

    Ignore the way the words feel like sandpaper running all the way up your throat to your mouth.

    When he blames you for mistakes that wear his face, do not scream.

    Do not cry.

    Tell him that there are boys who would be proud to say they’d love you.

    Tell him that in two years you won’t even remember his name and don’t let him see the way you can taste your own lie.

    When he leaves, ignore the howling in your blood and do not get up after him. Not even to lock the door.

    Do not, do not, DO NOT. Smell his shirts when you box them up to give them back. Not one.

    Swear off dating when you realize you’re chasing ghosts that wear his smile.

    It’s okay to cry over him. It’s even okay to forgive him. But do not go back to him if he did not know how to love you the first time. He won’t know how to do it the next.”
    Ashe Vernon

    Jenny Han
    “I will never look at you in the same way ever again. I'll never be that girl again. The girl who comes running back every time you push her away, the girl who loves you anyway.”

    Jenny Han

    R.K. Lilley
    “I’m going to ruin you. I’ll be your first, and I’ll fuck you so thoroughly that I’ll be your last too. You won’t want any other man after I’ve gotten my hands on you.”
    R.K. Lilley, In Flight

    R.K. Lilley
    “Is it romantic or psychotic when I say I'll never let you leave me?”
    R.K. Lilley, Grounded

  • #30
    R.K. Lilley
    “There you go, belittling us again. You must know by now that I've never done any of this for anyone else. I was a slut once with my body, but I've never been a slut with my heart.”
    R.K. Lilley, Mile High
