in Real Talk

I have a red plaid shirt that I cannot get rid of. It is buried in a storage container filled with clothes that I will never wear again, yet, I cannot find the will to toss any of it away.

in Real Talk

There’s something I wish society could understand… That our hearts are blind to who we love What you look like doesn’t matter Boy or girl That doesn’t matter Our hearts still melt in the presence of the one we love Our souls still sing when they walk into the room And we still get butterflies just by thinking about them Maybe that’s why they say love is blind Because our hearts fall in love with souls   Writer instagram @astra_writes
