The Silence Goes For Miles










Don't settle for someone who doesn't give you things to say. Forever is a long time to make small talk.

Choose to argue about politics and feel passion in discussions. Choose to live in words and treat them as if they are your last, with respect and careful planning.

This reminds me of a relationship I had once. He let me speak, but wouldn't listen. He disregarded everything I said that mattered. So I stopped speaking to him. Forever is a long time to be silent.

Only to be discovered too little too late at one's cost...
What if the priority is not emotional, or is to muffle the emotions completly?
Still wouldn't settle !
There's always something to say even if it goes unsaid simply because none uf us needs words to commmunicate.

you know, you make me a better person. by just posting what you post and reminding me of things i should already know upfront.
i need to be willing to spill out my heart even if it's about nothing more than how i feel when my pencil hits paper or my fingers touch clay. i need to want to tell you anything and everything because it's how i'm feeling, even if i don't actually end up saying it. just wanting to, that should be enough.

A PERSON WHO DOESNT GIVE YOU MUCH TO SAY ISNT SAYING MUCH FOR YOU TO REPLY..

Thanks for posting this... For a long time I was stuck between two people in my heart. The criteria I finally decided on judging my choice by was, when I am 70 years old sitting with this person in our rocking chairs by the fire, will I have anything to say to him? The man I chose was the "yes."

I was glad to see this from you today, You. Thank you.

Me

p.s. I am looking forward to your book being released and will be buying my Yes a copy for christmas, as I'm sure he will love it just as much as I have all this time.

And forever is a long time to pretend to text someone during an awkward silence....

It is possible to make statements without saying anything at all. It's silent moments that mean the most to me. I could hold you forever. You know who.

I could hold you for a million years my love.

Completely agree. We all have something to say to each other, its just that person who brings out those words within us,who matters more than others

Hi. Yes, I do know who. It's you. Thank you for making me smile at your twist on my own works, making me laugh for six days straight, making me contemplate humanitarian deeds such as walking on the Golden Gate. You are such a great friend to me. I LOVE you and I miss you. :)

Sounds like you dated my friend. He doesn't mean to be so cold. He just is. And will always be.

Did I make my statements clear?

I prefer silence over screaming.

You love but you never heal. I can't be here with you feeling so alone and keep coming back here. It hurts me twice to know you will never change. I have to turn away, pretend I can't hear your cry. You are your own worst enemy set to destroy yourself. I can hold you when you cry, I can remind you when its your mom's birthday , I can stand in the cold with you handing out flyers, I can come to every show, I can touch you in all the ways in all the places, I can call you so much you're caught between feeling really special and incredibly annoyed, I can feed you soup in bed when you pretend to be sick, I can pretend not to notice your long silences, the destructive little things you do, the way you blame everything on you, the way you question my whereabouts, go through my phone when you think I'm sleeping. But I can't save you from yourself and I can't hurt myself for a little bit of your tainted love. I can't pretend I don't hear your silent scream when you push me away and this time I don't come back. I can't save you, I can only love you and right now I need love. I can't wait forever and I can't use someone while I wait for you.So I'm gonna cry here in this spot and I'm gonna try not to hope you'll find me and then I'm gonna try and hope you don't hate me. And I'm gonna try and hope that you'll heal.

I reached for the words, tried so hard to pluck them from the air, but I couldn't find them. They were lost. You took them, with all your negativity and it made me feel worse than naked.
