there could be a ghost aggressively breakdancing beside you right now and you’d have no idea
Majestic Motherfucking Creatures we are.
This is sensational
You know those quiet moments.
A freeway with no cars, even if just for a second.
A county road blanketed in early morning fog.
A comfortable silence.
A safe silence.
A cozy silence.
A quiet silence.
In health class we were given sheets of paper and told to write a message we would want someone of the opposite sex to know
