“It happens like this.

"One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else--closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel--one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them--even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering--the reason for their presence will become clear in due time."

Though here is a word of warning--you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn't to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

It's so dark right now, I can't see any light around me.
That's because the light is coming from you. You can't see it but everyone else can.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“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.

In your hesitation I found my answer.”

“What was it like to love him? Asked Gratitude.
It was like being exhumed, I answered, and brought to life in a flash of brilliance.

What was it like to be loved in return? Asked Joy.
It was like being seen after a perpetual darkness, I replied. To be heard after a lifetime of silence.

What was it like to lose him? Asked Sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded:

It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to me—said all at once.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“You were you,
and I was I;
we were two
before our time.

I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.”

in love with words,
with setting skies
and singing birds—

in love with first.”

He just is,
I just am

I don't remember exactly but the whole time I was dreaming, I knew you were mine.”

“Just Friends

I know that I don't own you,
and perhaps I never will,
so anger when you're with her,
I have no right to feel

I know that you don't owe me,
and I should ask for more;
I shouldn't feel so let down,
all the times when you don't call

What I feel—I should show you,
so when you're around I won't;
I knwo I've no right to feel it
but it doesn't mean I don't.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure

to lie in bed awake;
with thoughts to haunt
you every night,
of all your past mistakes.

Knowing sleep will set it right -
if you were not to wake.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“But it was now time for her to go away—to find someone who could show her what happiness was.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“As a kid, I would count backwards from ten and imagine at one, there would be an explosion–perhaps caused by a rogue planet crashing into Earth or some other major catastrophe. When nothing happened, I'd feel relieved and at the same time, a little disappointed.

I think of you at ten; the first time I saw you. Your smile at nine and how it lit up something inside me I had thought long dead. Your lips at eight pressed against mine and at seven, your warm breath in my ear and your hands everywhere. You tell me you love me at six and at five we have our first real fight. At four we have our second and three, our third. At two you tell me you can't go on any longer and then at one, you ask me to stay.

And I am relieved, so relieved–and a little disappointed.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“In time she will learn,
not to
miss them.”

have kept you.”

me—said all at once.”

“Beauty's Curse

Her bow is drawn to worlds of dark,
where arrows spring and miss their mark—
she'll turn their heads but not their hearts.”

“Like time suspended,
a wound unmended--
you and I.

We had no ending,
no said goodbye;

For all my life,
I'll wonder why.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“For the past has taught
to not be caught,
in what is not
worth pursuing—”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“A marker drawn to show our end, is etched into its line.

The briefest moment shared with you—the longest on my mind.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“The Wanderer

What is she like?
I was told—
she is a
melancholy soul.

She is like
the sun to the night;
a momentary gold.

A star when dimmed
by dawning light;
the flicker of
a candle blown.

A lonely kite
lost in flight—
someone once
had flown.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“A Stranger

There is a love I reminisce,
Like a seed
I've never sown.

Or lips that im yet to kiss,
and eyes
not met my own.

Hands that wrap around my wrists,
and arms
that feel like home.

I wonder how it is I miss,
these things
I've never known.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“I don't think all writers are sad, she said.
I think it's the other way around—
all sad people write.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“But it's perplexingly sweet,
and quite sexy too—
to be ignored,
ignored by you.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“Shrinking in a corner,
pressed into the wall;
do they know I'm present,
am I here at all?

Is there a written rule book,
that tells you how to be—
all the right things to talk about—
that everyone has but me?

Slowly I am withering—
a flowered deprived of sun;
longing to belong to—
somewhere or someone.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“The briefest moment
shared with you—
the longest
on my mind.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“Before the tears that tore us, when our history was before us.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
“Saving You

The darkness takes him over,
the sickness pulls him in;
his eyes—a blown out candle,
I wish to go with him.

Sometimes I see a flicker—
a light that shone from them;
I hold him to me tightly,
before he's gone again.”
Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure
