Once when I was young
I ran right into
my grandma’s menthol cigarette;
I still have the mark to prove it.

I think about this
every time
I imagine your lips
on my skin.
"I Do Not Think This Is A Good Thing" Trista Mateer (via tristamateer)

You’re my little beam of light,
that shines through the crack of the window.
You’re my little star in the sky,
that I follow when I lost my way.
You’re my little melody,
that I listen to when happiness is what I need.
You’re my little safekeeper,
that knows my heart better than I do myself.
— (via sexceptance)
