When I am lonely for boys it’s their bodies I miss. I study their hands lifting the cigarettes in the darkness of the movie theaters, the slope of a shoulder, the angle of a hip. Looking at them sideways, I examine them in different lights. My love for them is visual: that is the part of them I would like to possess. Don’t move, I think. Stay like that, let me have that.

Boys are idiots. Girls are idiots, too, of course, but boys are a special kind of idiot. A girl, for instance, will vote for a boy in an election, or go to a movie that's about a boy, or buy a book that features a boy hero (or villain). Boys are much less likely to return the favor. They can't wrap their feeble minds around the idea that this girl might have anything in common with them. It's like they can't recognize girls as human beings.
"But" i am in love with you but you’re in love with your music. I have eyes for you, but you have eyes for the stage. I have a burning passion for you, but you have a burning passion for rapping. I cried my eyes out for you but you cried your eyes out for your fans. Whatever I have for you, there’s always a wall blocking it so you can’t feel the same.
Don't cry because you know that his love has slipped away. Because he used to be a boy who watched the sun rise every day. One morning I sat with him and I was entirely in awe. But the boy had viewed it so much that 6 six a.m. was all he saw. You are a brilliant sunrise, with your darkness-breaking light. I know he has forgotten days without you are cold and long dark nights. He cannot see your beauty, he has taken you for granted; but that doesn't mean you have failed to leave others enchanted. You deserve love from someone who will appreciate how you always rise again. I hope he regrets ever coming to see you as just another six a.m.
Stop telling little boys they are invalid because they display ‘feminine’ qualities. Like softness is not a quality shown by men at all. Like sensitivity is a thing to be regarded with disgust and unkindness. Stop telling them that they become less when they express emotion. Do not them that it doesn’t matter when boys show emotion, that they deserve to be ignored when they do. Do not dismiss their tears to toughen them up and turn their feelings into a joke because that is how you create sociopaths. Stop saying, ‘You punch like a girl’ or ‘Yeah, that was all right…for a girl’. And stop telling your sons their tears make them girls – as though being a girl is the worst thing in the world. When the truth is being a girl is no different from being a boy when they are both just human beings. Stop demeaning them by making the word ‘woman’ or ‘girl’ a method to control their behavior, a reason to bottle their emotions and instead be volatile and display violent behavior. Stop teaching them to bully each other until they are macho and man up. And the ones of them who do not fit into this ideal are effeminate as if that is a curse. I wish society would stop telling little boys that showing emotion is the same thing as being a girl. And being a girl is the same thing as being weak. Instead, never let your sons forget where their essence was just formed, when their bodies were most vulnerable, they were protected by the womb of a woman. If they ever call all women weak, remind them of the strength of their mother who pulled her whole body apart to give theirs a home. Instead, teach them how to be kind regardless of their gender. Teach them how women and men are strong in their own ways. Teach them to respect the attributes they admire as one human to another. Instead, raise boys who accept people as they are and are strong because of their belief in themselves. Raise boys who are strong enough to display emotion and softness, and not hide their feelings when they display their hopes and dreams. Raise boys who can appreciate the softness of a moonlit night as much as they appreciate the stormy anger of the sea. After all, how are they supposed know how to respect women as much as men, if they are taught from a young age that women are lesser human beings.
ladies, if he knows you for one day and he's already hitting you with the "I love you", he's probably lying. and if he adds in "I've never felt this way about anyone before.." then not only is he lying, but he probably throws that same line to anyone that'll listen. all in all: proceed with caution.

Please don't give him credit for your life, the ability to feel happiness seeping through your arteries,into your heart, your lungs, spreading across your skin until you are flush and weak. You were born with the talent to love and be loved in return, to look at the sky in the day, and gaze at the stars at night, with or without him by your side. Please dont think, if in a month, or three, or twelve, he leaves, that you can't live, that you can't breathe. Because your mother gave birth to a beating heart and two working lungs and you knew from the day you were born. You have always known. Today he says he loves you. You feel like you might die of happiness. Tomorrow he leaves, he doesn't know what, but something has changed.You feel like the loneliness is filling your lungs with liquid and you're scared it's going to kill you. But with or without him, you'll do just fine because today you've given too much credit to him and tomorrow you won't give enough to yourself. -S.Z.
ah yes, because all the girls will LOVE those pink shorts that show of your skimpy hairly legs and that vineyard vines shirt that shows how wasteful you are with your money. that's how to get girls. duh.

“ People like to believe that falling in love means you can never fall out of love. Such a thought is a bandage, a comfort for those so greatly foolish as to believe this. It is meant to warm the hearts of those who are falling together. But love, like all things, must come to an end. To fall in love, truly, is to fly. And it is with a ball that has been thrown into the air, there will be a point in all love where an apex is reached. Some of us are lucky, in that our love is slow and steady, and is caught before we can begin to fall. For we will fall, and oh how it is, to fall from love. ” ( c.b.l. ) Amenah's format
