"I don’t want to be the person who isn’t listening when someone talks; instead, thinking about your eyes, your hair, your lips, your voice. But I can’t help it.

I have to wait for this love to crest and fall and then I’ll finally be able to function knowing you’re so far away from me, with no end in sight."
- Karen Noble, Distance Doesn’t Matter, I Still Think About You All Day Long (via feellng)
"The person you think of when you stand in front of the ocean. That’s the person you’re in love with."
