Expectation is the root of all heartache.

It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for some place that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere.

Danzy Senna

(The most perfect quote I’ve ever read about traveling, this is how I perpetually feel.)

It’s a funny thing about happiness. You can strive and strive and strive to be happy, but happiness will sneak up on you in the most peculiar ways. I feel happy suddenly. I don’t know why. Some days, the way the light strikes things. Or for some beautifully immature reason like finding myself running to the kitchen to make myself some toast. Happiness comes to me even on a bad day. In very, very strange ways.
- Joni Mitchell

It’s nearly midnight. I’m laying here and I’m at that point where if I just closed my eyes I could easily fall asleep. My body is tired but my brain is not. I’m thinking of you, I’m nearing sleep and thinking of how easy it would be if you were here. I want to be wrapped in your arms again, I want to hear your heartbeat, I want to fall asleep with you. I don’t know what happened but I wish you’d come back.
