" what kind of idiot sleeps on this heart of mine ?

what kind of idiot falls for it EVERY time ?
so what kind of idiot am i ?
am i ?
am i ?
am i , i ? “
You Can Stop Now by Miss Jia
"You can stop telling me that you love me. I don’t want, welcome, or need any type of emotional abuse. People who genuinely love other people don’t play games of double dutch in their lives, no matter what the situation calls for.
You can stop acting as though you need me. If I was such a necessity, none of what I’m saying would be a necessity. You made your choice; deal with the shit.
You can stop running to me every single time you and your choice get into an argument. I’m not a therapist, nor am I a spiritual counselor. If you two have issues, keep the shit between you two. But don’t penetrate my happiness by assuming that I’m willing to be your fix…even if temporarily.
You can stop talking about how unhappy you are. People who are wise AND unhappy don’t remain the latter for too long. Again, you’ve made your choice; deal with the shit.
You can stop telling me that you don’t see yourself marrying the person that you’re with. For one, no Juan kerr. Two, I don’t feel bad for you. Again, YOU’VE MADE YOUR CHOICE. Stop playing games with folks you don’t see a future with. And further, stop thinking that I’m going to be dense enough to believe you when you say that you’re fed up. Be fed up enough to leave, fix yourself, and hope that I’m available when you’re done.”
Childish Gambino – What Kind Of Love
" what kind of love just stays the same ?
what kind of love don’t die a l o n e ?
what kind of love would take this long ?
what kind of love don’t make you old ? . . .
what kind of love don’t h u r t so bad ?
what kind of love don’t feel this way ?
what kind of love would make me f o l d ?
l i t t l e l i e s . . . little lies , little lies . . .
little lies . . . little lies . little liiiiiies .
la-lalala-la-la-la-laaaa . little lies . “

i cannot .
Stop setting yourself
on fire for someone who
stays to watch you burn.
My problem is that I fall in love with words, rather than actions.
I fall in love with ideas and thoughts, instead of reality.
And it will be the death of me.
Drake ft. Sampha Performing “Too Much” On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
I prefer this version over the one on the album because you can not only see Drake’s emotions , but actually FEEL it through his voice and gestures . Just , powerful .
Beyoncé: “Self–Titled” Part 5 – Honesty
James Fauntleroy – Fire Bomb ( Demo )
This will forever be my fave Rihanna song & her best song , in my opinion .
James wrote his ass off with this one .
Writing this in-class essay about him was therapeutic for me in ways I did not expect & fully grasp until I read it again after I got it back .
My English professor told us the prior class session that we were going to have an in-class writing assignment . She didn’t mention what the theme would be , so we had to think about it on the spot after she told us .
She revealed that we were to write about a person that has had an influence in our lives .
Naturally , he happened to be the first person (outside of my family) that I thought about .
So , without hesitation , I wrote down what having him in my life has taught me & how he’s influenced me .
I often wondered why our paths crossed , but now when I reminisce , the more I think that it was fate .
He was meant to be in my life for a certain period of time to help me grow and learn .
Those lessons were both good and bad , but I’m thankful for them the same .
I needed to go through those growing pains in order to learn more about myself and what I wanted .
All in all , I’m thankful that he was a part of my life because I honestly don’t know who I would be without the lessons that he’s taught me .
For that , I’m forever grateful .
So , thank you .
