this could be anywhere in the world

but it's not.

a million little pieces

why do you stare at me?
what?
you stare at me. i want to know why.
you already know why.
i don’t.
yes, you do.
no, i don’t. 
you do, you just want to hear me say it.
tell me why you stare.
i took a deep breath.
the first time i saw you, my heart fell. the second time i saw you, my heart fell. the third time fourth time fifth time and every time since, my heart has fallen.
i stared at her.
you are the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. your hair, your eyes, your lips, your body that you haven’t grown into, the way you walk, smile, laugh, the way your cheeks drop when you’re mad or upset, the way you drag your feet when you’re tired. every single thing about you is beautiful.
i stared at her.
when i see you the world stops. it stops and all that exists for me is you and my eyes staring at you. there’s nothing else. no noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow. the world just stops, and it is a beautiful place, and there is only you. just you, and my eyes staring at you.
i stared. 
when you’re gone, the world starts again, and i don’t like it as much. i can live in it, but i don’t like it. i just walk around in it and wait to see you again and wait for it to stop again. i love it when it stops. it’s the best fucking thing i’ve ever known or ever felt, the best thing and that, beautiful girl, is why i stare at you.

truth. 

truth. 

Olivia: I smile at her and take off my clothes for you. I wait for you. I watch for you. My whole life is you. I can’t breathe because I’m waiting for you. You own me, you control me, I belong to you…
Fitz; you are me. You control me. I belong to you. You think I don’t wanna be a better man. You think that I don’t wanna dedicate myself to my marriage. You don’t think I wanna be honourable, to be the man you voted for. I love you, I’m in love with you. You’re the love of my life. My every feeling is controlled by the look on your face. I can’t breathe without you. I can’t sleep without you. I wait for you. I watch for you. I exist for you. If I could escape all this and run away with you… there’s not sally or Thomas here, you’re no victim here. I belong to you. We’re in this together.

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone, you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out
