"Hope the wind gets to kiss you when nobody does
and if it whispers i love you
i most likely was
Flip a coin, down a bottle make it spin
If it wins, we can dream it all again.”

even when u niggas sleep on me, i’m woke on my own self. i know how great i am. i know i’m a gem.
Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”
My time has come
Aaliyah’s “crying scene” from Romeo Must Die - in order to do it Aaliyah thought of her grandmother’s death a year before.
It’s funny, when you want to cry you kind of want to cover yourself but I was told you have to be open and let yourself yell out and that will help you to cry, and it actually did. So it was very draining but I had such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment because those are real, they’re not fake tears.
~ Aaliyah for NME, 2001
fuck you mean I’m boring you knew I was a lame when you met me
You must learn her.
You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
And, this is how you keep her.
