"I’ve always assumed that love is a dangerous disadvantage. Thank you for the final proof."

Sherlock, A Scandal in Belgravia

"I’d cut my soul into a million different pieces just to form a constellation to light your way home. I’d write love poems to the parts of yourself you can’t stand. I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark."

Andrea Gibson, Slip Your Mind

"You see,
I’ve written like a million poems
hoping that somehow
maybe
someway
you’ll jump out of the page
and be closer to me.
Because if you were here,
right now,
I would massage your back
until your skin sings songs
that your lips don’t even know the words to,
until your heartbeat sounds like my last name
and you smile like the pacific ocean.
I want to drink the sunlight in your skin."

Rudy Francisco, Love Poem

"I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me."

Mary Kate Teske
